Cabinet approves NYP-2014

New Delhi, Jan 9 : The Union Cabinet on Thursday gave its approval for introduction of the National Youth Policy-2014 (NYP-2014), replacing NYP-2003 currently in force.


The vision of NYP-2014 is to empower youth to achieve their full potential and through them enable India to find its rightful place in the community of nations.

For achieving this vision, the policy identifies five well-defined objectives and 11 priority areas and suggests policy interventions in each priority area.

The priority areas are education, skill development and employment, entrepreneurship, health and healthy lifestyle, sports, promotion of social values, community engagement, participation in politics and governance, youth engagement, inclusion and social justice.

The focused approach on youth development and empowerment involving all stakeholders, as envisaged in NYP-2014, would result in development of an educated and healthy young population, who are not only economically productive, but are also socially responsible citizens contributing to the task of nation-building.

"It will cover the entire country catering the needs of all youth in the age-group of 15-29 years, which constitutes 27.5 per cent of the population according to Census-2011, that is about 33 crore persons.It will replace NYP-2003, to take care of developments since 2003 and future policy imperatives," read a government statement.
