Q.3 The demographic dividend is available for a period of time, ‘the window of demographic opportunity’ and India is in the middle of a demographic transition. In the context of this, suggest the policy changes India need to reap the dividend. (10 Marks)

Mentor’s comment-
  • https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/reaping-indias-demographic-dividend/article38262080.ece
  • In the intro, mention falling fertility and rising median age, and falling dependency ratio in India.
  • In the body mention policy measures to invest more in children and adolescents, health, reducing the gender inequality in education, increasing the female workforce participation etc, addressing the diversity between the states etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the implementing policy changes before the window of opportunity closes.
