Youth for Nation-Building

Youth represent the most dynamic segment of the population and are the future of the Nation. India is one of the youngest nations in the world. About 65% of India’s population is under 35 years of age. The focus of the Government is on youth-led development. The Youth should be “active drivers” and not merely the “passive recipients” of development.
