History gives every country a period when it advances its development journey manifold. In a way, this is the golden age (Amritkaal) of that country. This is the golden age (Amritkaal) for India. This is the period in India's history when the country is going to take a quantum leap. There are examples of many such countries around us, which have developed themselves by taking a similar quantum leap in a given time. This is the right time for India as well. We have to take advantage of every moment of this golden age; we should not waste even a single moment. India is at a turning point in its history. The 21st century will be India’s century, as the country pole-vaults into the future confident of its capabilities. It is the 5th largest economy in the world today and will be the world’s 3rd largest economy by 2027, as its GDP crosses US$ 5 trillion (IMF estimates). By 2047, India is poised to be a US$ 30 trillion economy with all the attributes of a developed nation. It will be a Viksit Bharat.
Viksit Bharat@2047 is the vision of the Government of India to make India a developed nation by 2047, the 100th year of its independence. This overarching vision encompasses multiple facets of development, encompassing economic prosperity, social advancement, environmental sustainability, and effective governance. For the fulfilment of this vision there is enormous work that needs to be done to make India Viksit Bharat by 2047. With a population of 144 crores, India is one of the youngest nations with a median age of 29 years. It accounts for nearly 20% of the world’s total young population. To channelize the energy of today’s youth towards this goal of Developed India, on December 11, 2023 at 10 30 am Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched “Viksit Bharat@2047: Voice of Youth” ideas portal and invite them to contribute for the vision of Viksit Bharat@2047.
