NEW DELHI: Lack of institutions that could help youth to acquire employment and housing for students were the main concerns conveyed by young city residents during ‘input’ collection exercise initiated by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) for the new master of Delhi (MPD) 2041 being worked upon.
“They (youth) believe that even if they do somehow educate themselves in reasonably good schools or colleges and perform to the best of their abilities, they don’t necessarily get employed. There was a need felt for equitably distributed skill enhancement institutions that would help them hone their employability skills and make them ready for the job market,” said an official of the DDA.
The DDA along with NIUA organised an ‘Online Youth Sabha’ on Thursday in which young city residents and students 15-30 years of age participated.
More than 800 participants registered for the event and
