SCOPE OF THE PROBLEM:
Youth unemployment is a wide range problem. It is
prevalent around the world.
India’s key to future success — its youth — is a ticking
time bomb. It is a growing mass of largely
undernourished, undereducated, unemployable young
people who aspire for a better life but don’t have the
means to get there.
Who is unemployed? –unskilled people, uneducated
people, ethnic minorities and disabled people.
CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM
Low level of education
Insufficient economic growth.
Rapid population growth
Inadequate employment planning.
Excessively regulated labour market.
REASONS FOR CHOOSING THIS PROBLEM?
Youth unemployment is a high priority agenda for our
country. It not only effects our economic growth but
also effect the social environment as manifested by
increased crimes, mental health problems, violence,
drug taking, and social exclusion.
High rate of unemployment could also lead to a brain
drain and hence country would lose a lot of valuable
human resource .
It could lead to instability within the country and
adversely affect the internal security of the country.

Changes in the economy have had a larger effect on
youth unemployment than overall unemployment. The
economic recession had a big affect on the current rate
of youth unemployment in the global north. In 2007,
before the recession began, the youth unemployment
rate was 13 percent. This number has now increased to
around 20 percent for youth.
Encouragement to Small Enterprises:
To provide the opportunities for self employment, small
scale industries should be given top priority. They should
be provided liberal loans, raw material training facilities
and infrastructure and market facilities etc.
To solve the problem of industrial unemployment,
remedy lies in stepping up industrial efficiency. It means
that the expansion of existing and the development of
new industries are urgently required. Some basic
industries like iron and steel industries, defence,
chemical, power generation and atomic etc., should be
There is no second opinion to say that population in India
is rising at a very high speed. Unless this problem is not
checked, the problem of unemployment cannot be
Efforts should be made to raise the agricultural and
industrial production. Therefore, special drive should be
made to make the programme of family planning a good
