LITERACY

Most of the policies of the government (National Literacy Mission Programme, Saakshar Bharat, Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), Midday Meal Scheme and, Free Bicycles Program Swachh Bharat Abhiyan) have been around since 1988. India has achieved the 74.04% literacy rate, now is it due to these schemes or due to low bar for passing someone for a literate? What have been the significant challenges in the implementation of these policies? And how to tackle them?

WORKPLACE BEHAVIOUR

With the increasing number of workplace behavioural issues around the globe and victims coming out of the shadows it is high time for ethical and acceptable norms for civic behaviour in the workplace. However, peer behaviour is an intricate part of defining workplace environment which in turn affects the efficiency of the workforce. Propose a plan, public policy, private policy, law, awareness campaign, or any other method to curb the plight of downtrodden.

 

UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME

Today we face widespread labour displacement caused by automation, a dangerous level of wealth inequality, climate change threatening to cause massive loss of stability, political polarization, and more. Though we face numerous problems, there is a policy solution which would help to alleviate many of these issues.

Universal basic income: a periodic cash payment to individuals which is paid out to every citizen of a country with no means test. A livable universal basic income would, alongside programs for other essentials such as healthcare and education, solve many of the largest problems facing our society today.

Discuss the challenges and innovative solutions for implementing UBI for lifting millions of people out of poverty such as promoting entrepreneurship within the marginal sections of society.

 

LGBTQ

Jubilation broke out among India’s sexual minorities as the country’s top court decriminalised gay sex. Now, the law and guaranteed the right to equality, sparking celebrations among India’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Still much needs to be done before achieving acceptance and equality.

The LGBT community welcomed the move, but still, there is little access to job opportunities and services like healthcare, education and housing to this section of society. There was a need to make them more inclusive so that they also enjoy the same social status as other Indians. Propose innovative ideas/plans/policies for the inclusion of LGBTQ community a new normal in our society to contribute to India’s inherent strength.

FINANCE

With Passing of FEO Bill 2018 and IBC code, 2015 India has finally addressed its soaring enigma of NPAs. We have started our journey to address this issue yet we are a long way from our goal. Propose policy remodellings, implementation tactics, technical and principle safeguards, GAAP principle alterations, Indian Accounting Standard Changes (e.g., shortcomings of AS 14), or changes in handling any of the financial instruments.

SPORTS

Today sport emerges as an essential component of the Socio-economic development of a country. The active participation in sports improves community health and productivity, reduces medical expenses, imbibes discipline in character, generates great leaders, and enhances social cohesion. A country is glorified by the medals/titles won by its athletes in the international event. India- the second largest populous country in the world, regardless of which it lacks behind in big leagues. What an individual or private or government organization can do to improve sports culture in India.
