Though ironical it may seem, a huge majority, of those surveyed, 61% of mainly city youths, felt the Modi government has handled "communalism related issues" quite well, which is just a marginal drop of 2% from past year.

A total of 61 per cent people participating in the survey that involved more than 200 cities and rural area said that the Narendra Modi government met their expectations.

The survey says that 28 percent of the citizen feel that the government was able to control the prices of essential commodities and cost of living and 66 percent feel that prices have not come down.

Around 59% of the citizens who polled believe that the government will fulfill the promises made in its pre-election manifesto, which is a fairly high trust factor. But, people may not share the same sentiment. Only 8 per cent people thought Make In India initiative was being implemented efficiently and effectively.

If a year ago 35% people in 2016 said that unemployment had reduced under the Modi government, "this number was 21%, indicating that an increased percentage of citizens now believe that the government is unable to address unemployment", the report states.

In order to take stock of the economic performance of the Modi government, the hits and the misses, Business Television India (BTVi) has begun (at 7am every day) a new series "1100 Days Of Modi" - that includes several shows that highlight multiple aspects of the Indian economy, business and the stock markets.

However, the Modi government's push for infrastructure has worked well in creating a positive impression. Only 23% citizens believe that healthcare facilities and services have improved in the last 3 years. About 72 per cent people previous year approved of infrastructure development push of the government.

Since the time Narendra Modi took oath as Prime Minister of India in May 16, 2014, there has been a long list of achievements in his leadership. They believe that though demonetisation may not have reduced corruption, it helped fighting black money.

In the three years that he has ruled India there have been setbacks and successes as well.

Foreign policy matters in direction of handling of Pakistan and India's global impact under the Modi government was applauded broadly.

The Indian Army's surgical strikes seem to have boosted the Modi government's image among people.
