The feature enables users to donate in favour of the Bhartiya Janata Party – minimum Rs 5 to maximum Rs 1,000, said a report by The Economic Times. Once the donation is made, a referral code is generated by the app which the user can send to his or her contacts.

If a hundred people end up using the same referral code to donate funds via NaMo, the person who shared it initially could get to meet PM Modi, a senior party official told the daily. All such winners would be invited in groups to talk about issues of their concern. Also Read - 3 Local BJP Leaders Killed by Militants in Kashmir’s Kulgam, Resistance Front Claims Responsibility
If a user does not get the chance to meet the PM, he or she can receive NaMo merchandise such as T-shirts, mugs, caps, notebooks, etc. In this case, the condition is for the user to make at least 10 people donate using his or her referral code.
Senior BJP leaders, including PM Modi, party president Amit Shah and Sushma Swaraj have already donated using the feature.
PM Modi himself tweeted about it, exhorting people to donate using the app.
While the donation drive was launched on the app a few months ago, in October, the app was upgraded to add the small donation feature along with a volunteer platform and merchandise.
According to the daily, this feature of allowing an opportunity to meet the PM could boost donations for the party ahead of the 2019 elections. The NaMo App has been installed by around 10 million people currently, said PTI.
