India is one of the youngest nations in the world. In order to capitalise on this demographic dividend, however, India needs to ensure access to quality education and employment opportunities. India’s youth increasingly aspire for greater empowerment and a better quality of life. With changing times, governments too must respond by creating an ecosystem that enables people to fulfil their aspirations. It is in recognition of these aspirations that the NDA government under PM Narendra Modi has taken certain transformative steps in various spheres, be it school education, higher education, R&D or skilling, to harness Yuva Shakti.
