Issue of Youth Unemployment in India

The median age of the Indian population- the age that divides the population into two equal halves was 28.4 in 2020.

While this created the image of a “younger” population and a productive workforce, the grim side is their expectations of the state especially access to quality education, and job opportunities.

What is the topmost concern for young Indians?

In the Youth study 2016, when asked about the biggest problem in India, one-fifth (19 percent) of the youth identified it as the topmost concern. After three years, in the NES Pre-poll 2019, an even higher proportion- 25% of young Indians reported jobs as the most important issue while voting in the Lok Sabha elections Elections. This proportion was higher in the central and northern parts of the country, mostly comprising Hindi speaking states, than in the south. The states of Delhi, Telangana, Haryana and Panjab stood out.
