Millennial Voters – Can they decide the future of India?

is india ready for 5g

India is the second most populated country in the world with nearly a fifth of the world’s population. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% below the age of 35. It is expected that, in 2020, the average age of an Indian will be 29 years.

Millennials, also known as Generation ‘Y’ are the people who were born between 1985 to 2000 (some researchers use 1980 as the starting year, and some other researchers take the starting year as 1990). All of them have now turned eligible to vote. As these adults form the majority of the Indian population (more than 50%) they definitely will decide the future of India. They can also influence the voting behaviour of their parents and other elderly relatives.

One of the key grievances of the millennials is unemployment. As a majority of them have turned employable, jobs are a necessity for them. And, unfortunately, India has a stark scarcity of job avenues. According to the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) report, the unemployment rate was at an all-time high of 6.1 percent in 2017-18, the highest in 45 years.

The government has taken numerous steps to improve the job market. Some of them are Skill India initiative, Start-Up India and incubation centers, Make In India project to boost production in India, Insolvency and Bankruptcy code, easing restrictions on FDI in different sectors, etc. But, despite this, unemployment is still existent.

Millennials hold the key to the future of India. They are more informed, aware and connected to the world than any previous generations. The Lok Sabha elections of 2019, will definitely show what the millennials truly wish for their future.

  1. Hlo everyone
    Steps are taken by present government and many scheme and policies are made, but still unemployment was moved a little . This is due to work done on ground level . The schemes are made and are forwarded like start up India and make in India , skill India but proper implementation is not done . Awareness part is done completely but utilisation part is still incomplete .

  2. Of course, they decide the future of India, because their population is more than 50% . They will be charged democracy. And they give in same party which is won.

  3. Good morning everyone, On this topic I would say every single step changes it effect to a system of the environment And also the steps to be taken for the people who have gaps but they have different talent so , finally whatever step taken by upcoming new government I am sure that will help for those people who really want to change.
    Thank you
