Mapping India’s Youth

India has the largest youth demographic in the world, with upwards of 670 million Indians below the age of 25. Each state in India also has a demographic dividend, and CYP’s work focuses on highlighting them such that they’re a part of our discourse. Explore our map to find out interesting youth-centric details about each state, such as the youth demographic, their respective Youth Affairs Department and Minsiter as well as their state’s Youth Policy.
