Students have been asked to send their ideas on 11 core themes including environment women safety, education, health, traffic, infrastructure, agriculture, social welfare, disability, travel and digital literacy.

The HRD Ministry in its official circular said, “The aim of this challenge is to give young students of our country a platform and opportunity to become solution creators for the problems they see around them and their communities”.
