India is at a turning point in its history. The 21st century will be India’s century, as the country pole-vaults into the future confident of its capabilities. It is the 5 th largest economy in the world today and will be the world’s 3 rd largest economy by 2027, as its GDP crosses US$ 5 trillion (IMF estimates). By 2047, India is poised to be a US$ 30 trillion economy with all the attributes of a developed nation. It will be a Viksit Bharat.

Viksit Bharat@2047 is the vision of the Government of India to make India a developed nation by 2047, the 100th year of its independence. The vision encompasses various aspects of development, including economic growth, social progress, environmental sustainability, and good governance.

As India stands at this crucial juncture, poised to take off on its growth trajectory, it is important to realise that tremendous dedication and belief in India’s destiny, immense desire, potential, talent and capabilities of the Indians, especially the youth, coupled with steadfast leadership, is necessary to realise this potential. There is enormous work that needs to be undertaken in a mission mode to make India Viksit Bharat by 2047. For this to happen, there is a need to chalk out a bold, ambitious and transformative agenda, and its communication to all stakeholders. The role of the youth, who constitute our largest population group, has a huge role here as they will lead India to Viksit Bharat by 2047.

Therefore, it is important to channelise the innovative ideas of the youth into nationbuilding by inviting them to ideate and contribute to the vision of Viksit Bharat by 2047. It is important that every youth, more so the youth in colleges/ institutes and Universities take part in this important nation building exercise. Therefore, it is important that outreach initiative of this program reaches to every youth in the country. Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education will lead the communication and outreach in this regard.
