The Union Budget was announced earlier in the day and the reviews are quite positive towards Mr. Jaitley’s first budget as the Finance Minister. With a lot of prices going down, grants being set up and a rather controversial statue of unity having taken a huge chunk, the budget if nothing then managed to give the citizens of India a ‘feel good’ vibe towards the government which has been amiss since quite a few years now.
To focus up on what the Modi Government plans to do for the youth of the country, well plenty! Focusing equally on the rural as well as urban sector, plans have been made for setting up new IIM’s, IIT’s and AIIMS in the country.
A Himalayan study center has been proposed while FTII Pune and SRFTI Kolkata get the status of institutes of national importance. The very sensitive issue of lack of women’s safety leading to a drop in the rate of education, was tackled by announcing the ‘Beti padhao, beti badhao yojana’, and setting aside Rs 100 crore for it, along with setting aside Rs 150 crore to boost women’s safety and a Crisis Management Centre for women in Delhi, the money for which is to be provided from Nirbhaya fund.
A Sports university has been proposed in in Manipur; the Lok Nayak National Centre for higher education and the Madan Mohan Malviya scheme for teacher training along with 12 more medical colleges with dental facilities as well, have also been proposed.
After securing the education front, they created provisions of Skill India programme to provide training and support for employment and the young leaders programme for budding entrepreneurs was also proposed.
Also, Rs 500 crore for digital India programme to ensure broadband connectivity at village level.
Let’s just hope that for a country that can bank immensely on it’s youth power, this government keeps no stone unturned in order to harness the nations strength and help us grow by leaps and bounds.
