Karnataka cabinet gives nod to Karnataka Youth Policy

Bangalore, 9/12: The Cabinet on Thursday cleared the new Karnataka Youth Policy that promises interventions in education, training, employment, health and sports programmes for youngsters, besides a dedicated budgetary outlay.

The policy recommends re-organisation of the Youth Empowerment Department and evaluation of programmes meant for the youth. It says that the main intention is to develop youth, who account for 30 per cent of the total population.


Briefing reporters, Law Minister J C Madhuswamy said a decade has passed since the previous policy was adopted in 2012. “New challenges such as technological progress and humanitarian crises like COVID highlighted the need to rethink the state’s approach to youth development. The Karnataka Yuva Policy, 2022 factors these challenges into its approach to supporting youth in the state,” he said.
