Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Fostering Lifelong Learning // In the 21st century, technological innovations that took decades to occur are being replaced in years, in some cases just months. These revolutionary technological breakthroughs present a unique opportunity for India to industrialize. With the right policy framework, India could use the democratic nature of technology to reindustrialize itself. This democratic nature of technology has allowed firms to overcome their country's legacy issues and become global leaders in various fields. This potential harnessed properly could help India industrialize and create global leaders from its soil. However, skilling, reskilling and upskilling are necessary conditions for actively allowing the participation of Indian youth in the sectors dominating the fourth industrial revolution. This paper analyses the Fourth Industrial Revolution, through crucial policy decisions taken by the Government of India, related to the skilling of youth. // Paper ID 3948
