Eradicate Corruption-Build a New India

There has been lost of dissent among the youths related to job opportunities. One of the most
divisive factor has been the fine politics that is played to separate them from each other and
prevents them to organise themselves into unions.

so by 2020, the average age in Japan is going to be 47, in China it’s going to be heading well past 40,
Europe, 46, the United States, youthful US, also 40, and India’s average age is going to be 29.

If we get it wrong, the demographic dividend that I’m talking about becomes a demographic
disaster. Because, we’ve already seen in 165 of our 625 districts what happens when unemployed,
frustrated, undereducated young men become prey to the blandishments of the Maoists and prey to
the gun and the bullet.

So education in our country is not just a social or economic issue, it’s even a national security issue.
We’ve got to equip our people to take advantage of what the 21st century offers them.

Various measures have been already taken:

Data appetite of Indians have forced them to avail the use of online services more than ever.

Lastly it is ‘us’ who need to act and take necessary steps in the regard. We often talk about our
fundamental rights. It’s time we talk about our fundamental duties too. In the end I would end by
quoting the preamble of our constitution that states,

EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all

FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;

IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this 26th day of November, 1949, do HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT
AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION

It is an issue so important that was one of the key reasons for the debacle of key political parties
reducing to 2 digits in the 2014 general election. It is an issue so important that still remains one of
the key players in world politics dynamics and shifts regaularly. The most recent example being in
Brazil when Mr Bolosonaro was elected for his stance on corruption.

There may be one case that I can go on quoting various reasons of corruption, dissect the each and
every point with facts accompanied by suggestions. But that would mean that I would end up
overshooting the given time constraint by few hours. And I am pretty sure that neither
administration would love the same nor I do bear any such intension. So I would be sticking with 2-3
causes, would try to analyse the alpha and omega with the same and would try to come up with a
solution as per my understanding keeping my words and thoughts pretty much aligned with the
topic which has been given and stated.

One of the main causes of corruption is lack of job opportunities. People are willing to shell out lakhs
and crore for a certain job post in public administration or private sector. The same goes true for
medical seats in few organisations that have come into light quite often. They end up indulging
themselves in inappropriate activities justifying their actions that he needs to cover up for the huge
investment that he made years ago.
India is a young nation and there aint a single day when I don’t come to hear this. I am quite proud
of the fact But are we treating them right? Are the institutions doing enough for them? Are they
being offered fair opportunities or are we waiting for a demographic disaster

India is a county with 36000+ colleges. That sounds great right? But that’s the case looking hovering
over from 35000 ft and above. Lets delve into the exact findings and numbers. Since 2003, India has
been adding more than 1000 colleges per year. The peak was the period between 2007 and 2009
when the country added 7206 colleges, about 1/5th of the total number. Karnataka alone added
more than 350 colleges in an year which accounts for more than 1 college per year and UP had 490
new colleges sprout in 2014 which meant more than one college per day.

Lets analyse the same information in different perspective. But lets analyse the same figures as per
college per capita per lakh population. And the figures are quite disappointing.

The national average of the same is 2.87 and the country’s most populous states namely UP and
Bihar lag far behind. Bihar as a state do have 0.6 college for per lakh population while UP also lags

So there were institutions being opened up and that must be to cater to the demand. But are there
such number of students?

But where are these students coming from?

But how has been our institutions doing in the same regard of providing them employment
opportunities.

Lets back the given finding with the world bank data available on public data forum by Google.

Current tertiary enrolment ratio of India is 1% which was 0.73 % in 2010 and increased to 0.98 % in
2014. That’s a 34.24 % change from 2010 to 2014. Talking about the entire decade of 2000- 2010,
there has been 10.6 % change from 0.66% to 0.73%.

Tertiary enrolment rates are an expression of the % of the high school graduates that successfully
enrol into university.

If we go through our our national data statistics available on MHRD site, we come to know that there
were 24 lakhs students in higher education in 2009-10 which subsequently has increased to 48 lakhs
in 2015-2016.

Lets take a help from MHRD too and the data shows that If we go through our our national data
statistics available on MHRD site, we come to know that there were 24 lakhs students in higher
education in 2009-10 which subsequently has increased to 48 lakhs in 2015-2016.

How about the teachers?

Now let’s talk about pupil teacher ratio (PTR) in higher education which was 24 in 2009-10 and it
remained 24 in 2015-16. And the expenditure on education by education and other departments as
% of GDP has been 4.05 % in 2010-2011. While it has remained to be 4.04% in 2014-2015.
So there has been subsequent increase in the number of students enrolling themselves in tertiary
education. The industry got the heat few years back and that’s how India as a nation has ended up
with over 36000 colleges.

Now here are the young minds who worked hard, studied hard, aspired to be the

But this has been always the case? Right? Whats so special? Speciality lies in the basic timing of the
event. Never in the history of our nation, we have seen such a unprecedented rise in the number of
youths entering into working population with such a rate. So here are the young minds with
aspirations in their heart and they begin to hunt for Job.

In 2014-2016, SAIL cut down the job by 30413, BSNL has reduced their intake by 12795 and IOC has
decreased the same by 11924 jobs. The above reports were stated by Mahesh Vyas in Business
Standard.

But they still keep trying.

Now here are the few headline

March 2013; Advertisement for jobs at ordinance factory Kanpur shows up. March 2018: ministry of
defense issues a notice that the whole recruitment has been scrapped.

2012: 68500 teachers have passed there Bihar state STET exam and they haven’t got their
employment letter as of 2018.
