While delivering the inaugural address Professor (Dr.) M.M.

The demoralized youth deserve to be motivated with enough employment scope for them outside India. To inspire them for entering the employment market, we have to identify their potential and train them in the skills of communication in English with spiritual input, justified Professor Goel who is an economist.

For employability of youth, we need to increase return on training investment (ROTI) with  communication skills, time management and spiritual input along with abilities of head and heart, skills and knowledge (ASK), told the Director RGNIYD.

According to Professor Goel the essentials for youth empowerment in India are inherent in SMART (simple, moral, action oriented, responsive and transparent) model developed by him in the book “Economics of Human Resource Development   in India (2012).

We should prepare youth for the spirit of corporation and support in the present times of competition which is healthy as well as unhealthy.

Spiritual awakening is necessary for empowerment of youth for which   Bhagvad Gita needs to be incorporated in the manual of life skills for them, believes Director RGNIYD.

Shri R. Radhakrishnan M.P and Shri S. Satheese Zonal Director, NYKS also spoke on the occasion.
