  • National Youth Day is held every year on 12th January to observe the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Key Points

Way Forward

  • With a young population of 365 million (30%), India’s demographic dividend – the economic advantage of a large working-age population – is enormous.
  • India must ensure a healthy young population by making efforts to improve access to adolescent-friendly healthcare facilities, gainful employment and nutrition as a critical step to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
