‘Youth Wants Job Security & Leakage-Free Exams From Modi 3.0’

Youth Wants Job Security & Leakage-Free Exams

Mahendra Vikram, a B. Tech from Kanpur, says Modi in his third term must focus on youths by enhancing job avenues in existing as well as unexplored domains. His views:

I believe among all the issues that the Indian youth are concerned about today, job security sits on the top. The situation is particularly grave in densely populated states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, The shrinking margin of victory for the Narendra Modi government must force the policy makers at the Centre to address this issue.

Besides generating more and more employment in the public sector, the government should also amplify its focus in various other areas of its influence too by creating incentive-based regulations for private players. These should not be focused to a particular region or a state but it should also be extended across the country. In more populous region, for example, the focus could be on labour-intensive skilled jobs.

To begin with, this government should start clearing the backlog vacancies that are in lakhs in almost all the state departments. The backlog is also a major factor of corruption – take for example the electricity sector. In my district itself, most of the power houses are short of engineers and a senior engineer is executing the responsibility of the Ex.En, AE, JE, etc. He is overloaded with work and so is his work which often leads to hushing up responsibilities for obvious gains. This not only affects the quality of work, but also creates scope for pilferage and corruption.

Examination paper leakage is another raging issue that needs to be strictly dealt with. The UP government has introduced the stringent UP Public Examinations Ordinance which includes severe provisions like life imprisonment and fines up to ₹1 crore for those found guilty of leaking examination papers. The Modi government should also work on these lines to check the nuisance which is not only ruining careers but is also costing the aspirants dearly.

In addition, the government should also focus towards better transportation for students and aspirants who routinely face several hardships in reaching the exams centres. My advice is that the government should shun its plan of reducing sleeper bogies and, instead, add additional sleeper and general bogies in the trains at least during the time of examinations.

The government should also focus on opening more and more professional studies institutes like the recently started UP State Institute of Forensic Science in Lucknow. Similar institutes can be set up in the field of media, law, para-medics, performing arts, etc. The ongoing PM Kaushal Vikas Yojana could be further amplified by adding new professional skills into the scheme. At present, the focus of the scheme is to only produce a particular work force such as plumbing, masonry, electrician, carpenter work etc.

The Startup India initiative has been a successful initiative. However, the youth in the Tier 3 and Tier 4 townships are not getting the desired support and avenues. The initiate must penetrate deeper into the country and widen its reach. These are, as I can at present make out, are the aspirations and concerns of the youth who are eagerly waiting to see positive changes in the community and the country.
