Budget 2023: Govt’s recognition of post-pandemic learning loss a welcome move, says UNICEF

New Delhi, 2nd Feb 2023: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday announced the union budget 2023-24.

Commenting on the budget, Dhuwarakha Sriram, Chief of Generation Unlimited (YuWaah) and Youth Development and Partnerships at UNICEF, said, “We are glad that the priorities in the Union Budget 2023 feature Youth Power. The introduction of the National Digital Library for children and adolescents, provisions for teacher training, on-the-job skill training, apprenticeships, and the creation of 30 Skill India International Centres will help promote access to knowledge. The Government’s recognition of the post-pandemic learning loss is a welcome move.”
On AR / VR applications, she said, “Emphasis on skill development with AR/VR applications will help young people prepare for the future of work and enable them with relevant soft skills. The digital and physical infrastructure, particularly for the most marginalised young people in the hinterland, will help build higher student engagement and interest, and make learning an easy process.”
