Panel seeks feedback from students on youth policy

 

The state government has formed a panel headed by R Balasubramaniam, the founder of Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement, which will lay out a policy for the youth of Karnataka after getting their feedback on 43 questions, many of which are related to Covid-19.

The Department of Collegiate Education (DCE) through a circular dated January 1, 2022, has asked college principals to ensure that students participate in the survey in which youth up to the age of 29 can participate.

Girish N Gowda, a para Olympian, said: “The new policy should give more stress towards building a healthy society and enable the youth to be independent. It should cover all critical areas of human development, including physical and mental health, quality education, sports, etc. It should be implemented in a timebound manner.”
