India is privileged to have highest young population in the world which is currently at about 60% i.e. 700 million out of total population of 1.25 Billion. CII firmly believes that students of today will not only do India proud but also create the most innovative country in the world. Young Graduates, Post Graduates & Doctorates particularly in age group of 25-30 years from premier institutions in the country such as Punjab Engineering College (PEC) are intensely engaged for restructuring a Modern India which is taking an amazing global shape under highly proactive current political regime under dynamic & progressive leadership of Hon'ble Prime Minister of India - Shri Narendra Modi Ji with initiatives such as "Make in India, Digital India, Start up India, Stand up India besides slew of other focused schemes towards making India not only Urban but also Rural Progressive country thereby leading India to become a developed nation in the next 1-2 decades. Indian educated youth has a pivotal role to play in making this dream in reality. A wonderful interface of industry with academia & some of the most gifted, intelligent, diligent & forward looking students can not only metamorphose India but also pave a great direction for future generations to create a very powerful, gifted & most educated nation in the world. This has been amply demonstrated in various fields both by PIO segment not only in highly developed nations such as US, EU & Japan besides a lot of other countries but also in India through various achievements in last 1 decade in particular. This will spur the current generation of youth & students in particular to aim for global technology & scientific excellence.
