  • How to utilise demographic dividend of UP?
  • Guys lot of suggestions for questions but let's also start deliberating on answers. The discussion can provide us fodder to frame our own responses.

    Let's start with a frequent one.

    your opinion if favor or opposition to bi/trifurcation of UP and reasons thereof
  • Favour:
    Huge population
    Closer to centre of administration.
    Better attention to issues of local concern
    Better local representation in legislature

    Cons:
    Considerable expenditure on building administrative infrastructure
    Add Fire to regional tendencies from other parts of India
    Possibly Unable to compete with other states for investment
    New Inter state river water conflicts
    Other similar resource conflicts


    So fodder for both sides. Not really in favor of division at the moment but need to construct better arguments.. Suggestions? Please add.
  • Which source/local newspaper to read now to get a grip on state issues?
  • Aapke hisaab se cycle ka chinh kisko milna chahiye tha?? :D
    Man is sometimes extraordinarily, passionately, in love with suffering.
  • Kudos to the creator of this thread. (Y)
  • can UP become a leading state in skill development after inaugration of indian institute of skills in Kanpur?
  • How to utilise demographic dividend of UP?

    great
    Merit
    1. Better demographic dividend
    2. Huge and unstructured MSME, informalised labour
    3. Better Tourism Potential and Forex
    4. Reaping Dalit Capitalism.
    5.

    Demerits
    1. Greater Crime rate, insecurity among people.
    2. Poor penetration of Central Government schemes, Eg PMFBY.
    3. Less acceptability to Expand MSME, citing duty concerns.
    4. Communalistic tension, rumour mongering.

    Nice.
    I think I'll answer in negative if division of the state is asked. Only main counter question is how to manage such a bulky state in terms of population and creative solutions henceforth.

    Any suggestions over creative solutions? I'll also look into some.

    I also think the same. Creation of smaller states shall be based on administrative efficiency and not a political gimmick.

    For skills, in believe up govt has tied up with skill startupa for name.
    And first skill bank is also opening in up.

    Coupled with this. We need health and education to reap human capital.

    Health
    1. Robust phc
    2. Make health an issue in elections manifesto, despite social issue.
    3. Ensure health insurance cover up.
    4. Reduce out of pocket expenditure by bulk purchasing, generic medicines
    5. Doctors would compulsory put board, whether they write generics or not
    6. Ensure inventory to prevent misuse of generics.
    7. Clarification on universal definition on generics.
    8. Use isro, BARC techniques of testing in commercial scale.
    9. Prevent anti microbial resistance by promoting health literacy or health calls.


    Education
    1. Teachers capacity building shall be looked into, basic need
    2. Tet exam needs revamp and increase required qualifications, akin to leaks of TSR subra committee-.
    3. Informing parents about students, absence, marks, exam datesheet, syllabus etc.


    Will try to post more.

    Race against time.
  • @Pralaynath to answer the demographic dividend question well we need some statistics. Because obviously they'll counter question as to whether there is scope of DD in UP.
    Do you have data on:
    1. mean age
    2. age wise percentage to find dependency ratio
    3. trends of BR, DR etc (birth and death rates)

    i'll research more. Acc to census 2011, the literacy rate in UP is below national avg - 70%
    As u mentioned in ur answer, we'll have to focus on health and education. esp. at primary level.
    We'll need to create conditions conducive to have a dividend, the govt is already working in the direction(skill stuff u mentioned)

    What say/?
  • @panem
    Yes, you are right. Some facts would certainly answer the question, whether it can be reaped.

    I am searching for the data.

    Who so ever gets it, post it.

    Race against time.
  • Those experienced people who have appeared in interview(s) before like @BlackBox etc. please guide us on what questions they can ask from home state, what were you guys asked, etc.
