Survey reveals the Plight of India’s Quality of Life Social Evolution

The latest report, titled ‘The Competitiveness Roadmap for India@100′ points out that To pursue a cogent growth strategy, India requires a series of sector- and location-specific growth initiatives that reinterpret some of its main industrial and regional policies. India’s headline claimed Strong and even increasing GDP development hasn’t translated into the predicted improvements in many Indians’ quality of life, according to weak social transformation, growing inequality, and a paucity of regional convergence. According to the report, India needs to implement supportive social policies that would increase newcomers’ employability and lower barriers for job searchers. Although India scores remarkably well in more complex competitiveness metrics, it is said that the nation still lags in important fundamentals, particularly in terms of skills, infrastructure metrics, and business expenses.

Mythiksha collabs with NSDC, a great helping hand for rural youth

Mythiksha, an upskilling platform, has formally collaborated with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), a strategic implementation and knowledge partner in the Skill India Mission wholly owned by the Government of India’s Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE). By aiding in the organization’s expansion into rural cities, this relationship with NSDC intends to advance Mythiksha’s activities. In the upcoming 12 months, Mythiksha anticipates reaching over 1 lakh kids with the help of NSDC. Youth from tier 2 and tier 3 cities are guaranteed a job by Mythiksha.
