SRINAGAR, Oct 4: The path breaking initiatives of Government launched in various sectors from last three years laid the foundations of golden period across Jammu and Kashmir.
“Over the last three years, the pace of execution of developmental schemes has increased five times on account of resurgent institutional framework,” the officials said.
Similarly, grassroots democratic institutions like Panchayats and Urban Local Bodies have been empowered to actively participate in the decision-making process to cater to the needs of common citizens.

The Union Territory has achieved new horizons of success in the field of business, economy, education, culture and sports.
“The aspirations of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir have been synchronized with the aspirations of the country today. Their dreams are not confined to personal development, but transcend to create a good future for the society, nation and the entire humanity. The youth of Jammu and Kashmir today aspire for an equitable society free from poverty, unemployment and exploitation. They want a society which challenges and harnesses their creativity,” they said.

The targeted schemes under ‘Mission Youth’ have been crafted to empower the youth. It provides opportunities for youth to become ambassadors of innovation, peace, progress and sports. Livelihood generation programmes, skill development, counselling, sports, recreation and financial assistance by the government have brought a new revolution in youth empowerment in the last two years.
J&K administration has taken many steps to create infrastructure, schemes and policies to speed up economic development, and to meet the aspirations of youth so they can contribute to society and achieve self-growth.
