    If you are between 20 and 29 years of age, spare one year for the nation, suggest solutions to its problems and get a certificate or diploma from the government.

    The Modi government is set to roll out a plan, with the tagline ‘Ek saal desh ke naam’ (one year for the nation), to harness “youth power” for the nation in a month or two.

    The Nehru Yuva Kendra will soon make an announcement that youth who are in the age group — whether graduates or not — are welcome to take an all-India examination in Hindi or English and go through an interview process to make the cut for the initiative.

    They will be paid a stipend — expected to be about Rs 25,000-30,000 a month — through the year.

    The applicants should also be endorsed by an educational institution or a voluntary organisation working among youth, said a source in the government.

    The plan is both a move to associate the youth with the Modi government and harness their energies to seek ways out of the many problems India faces -- be it high dropout rates in schools, poor sanitation, infant and maternal mortality or the problems plaguing agriculture.

    An advisory committee headed by BJP leader Vinay Sahasrbuddhe has been put in place to chalk out the details. “The idea is harnessing youth power which after Modi ji’s rise is more in a mood to work for the country,” he told HT.

    The selected youth — about 350 in the first year of the scheme — will be trained by the government for two months — of which 10 days must be spent in remote or border areas — and then sent to a tehsil to study its problems and offer their solutions in the form of a written report or dissertation.

    At the end of the year, the Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development at Sriperumbudur will award those who put in one year a certificate.

    I am very much interested and will go for it.

    A great initiative by a shrewd, technocrat government. It will definitely draw in tens of times more applicants than the vacancies offered. I think I'll take the test too, if only to support this scheme.

    On a side note, about a year back, with all the institutional paralysis and the atmosphere of hopelessness, I was convinced that I'd have to leave this country for higher studies. Modi really did change my perception, and is part of the reason I chose to work for Indian infrastructure development. And luckily, I got an offer from the biggest infrastructure (and hopefully defense soon) construction conglomerate in India (Indian Company).

    He's also the reason my relative, one of the chief design engineers of one of the most spectacular projects in the Middle East wants to return home and serve his country. Unfortunately though, the state government still presents a barrier to his return.

    Excellent Thought.

    So what is so great about this scheme? Seriously? It looks like a useless scheme tbh.

    @Sakal Gharelu Ustad Cant we solve 80% of our problems with just reforming the judiciary?

    Looks like I dont even have to make arguments. You have actually proven my point that this is a useless scheme. Anyway, I am still skeptic. Someone please sell me on this project?!?!

    You mean other than the obvious stuff which does not need someone to tell Politicians of Modi's caliber? Like Police reforms, judicial reforms, reduction of red tape, doing away with useless subsidies, doing away with useless regulations and such? Does he need a massive youth enrolling and ideas from youth to get that these things are needed of the hour?

    Bringing in frustrated youths like you , channel the frustration to levels which can be used for something constructive than overloading the judiciary.

    How is it going to be used? And how will they know my ideas are better? And how is judicial reforms "overloading" judiciary? Do we even have to have a debate to tell that we need judicial reforms so that civil cases dont take 25years like that is the norm now?o_O

    Its an interesting initiative.
    Hope the GoI does something about the guyz who are in NCC for some serious nation building process. Theres a whole lot of numbers in it and they function is like a Cadre system which when tapped into can bring very positive change to the society.

    You are right.... It seems like a advertising campaign. But major reforms need bold backbone... SC court in not following replacement of Collegium.... Removing subsidized things = political suicide at this time... Will have to wait and see for next two years for any major reforms.

    Again guys, dont take us back to socialist days because of your blind love for Modi. The best thing to do as a govt is usually the hardest thing to do - do nothing. The water will find its own level. Make sure that you have a good free market and work for that. Everything will take care of itself

    First of all, quote properly so that I get notification that I got replied to. Second of all, Judicial and Police reforms are not political suicides. If anything, people will be overjoyed if it happens. there is no excuse for not having judicial reforms while announcing useless schemes like these

    Will do... Still learning this..
    This is what they are expecting... You can say that there la??? You can give them a perception that Youths are ready for major reforms and free economy unlike in pasts... Where reforms are dead slow and Govt will always worry about the approval rating

    Leave those concerns to them..them who runs the show must have an understanding about it

    Look at point 2 in the poster. There is an interview. Convince or Confuse!! :thumb:

    May be the youth involvement can bring positive change to the society.
    Societal reforms can bring down crimes , civil or otherwise and hence not overload the judiciary.

    Any reforms should start from the society, the rest remains in the book if the society is not conductive and proactive to elements of judiciary.

    YOu can write about the "Judicial Reforms" and try your luck mate!

    That another way of saying you dont know. So how are you supporting a scheme which you dont even know how it is going to work?


    I dont think you get my point. Who is going to decide the validity of my point/suggestion? Majority is not always right . To give an example, if such a survey/idea is conducted in a stone age society, a person who says that Earth is round will be seen as an idiot and would not have convinced anyone in the panel. So my question is, how is the govt going to weed out the bad ideas from the good ones? And who is deciding what is good and what is not? And how do you think people with no idea of how economics work can give any valuable idea on how to run the ecoonomics of the country?

    Such a generic statement. What does any of this have to do with this stupid scheme? Are the youths to be employed in this scheme going to do a door to door campaign about positive reforms ?

    And what societal reforms are you talking about? We as a society have already very low crime compared to the west, despite a shitty judiciary. It goes to say how shitty out judiciary is if our rape cases take 4-7 years for acquittal/conviction when we have only a case load 1/20th that of the western countries.

    And some youths campaining for anti corruption is going to end corruption? FFS, India is a country of 1.3bn people. Convincing a few youths to be clean is going to do jack shit to end corruption here. If you want to end corruption, you need to end the avenues of corruption

    Again, very generic statement and has nothing to do with the topic at hand

    The problem is, a good govt should not need someone like me to point out the need for something as obvious as judicial reforms!
