As India turns 75, we have come a long way since 1947 but we still have a long way to go, and that too, fast forward with a carefully drafted plan with strategic priorities. For India, 2047 is not just another milestone, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Indians.

The Viksit Bharat Abhiyan (Developed India Mission) was ideated by a revered policymaker, Prof. Rajendra Pratap Gupta in the book ‘Rebuilding India in the Next 25 years – Tough Choices & Hard Decisions’.

This is based on his analysis of our demographic dividend, which India is experiencing with every third Indian being a youth. This demographic dividend will peak in 2047, post that, the once-in-a-lifetime chance to transform India into a developed country will begin to decline.

So, with an overarching theme and a well-defined action plan, we need to galvanise all resources with the goal of a “Developed India by 2047,” when India celebrates its 100 years of independence. This is a now-or-never moment in Indian history, and we will have to achieve this goal in order to fulfil the dreams of 1.4 billion Indians.

Viksit Bharat Abhiyan is drafting a detailed plan for all sectors in order to guide various stakeholders and to prepare Indians for a better tomorrow.
