India's Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal recently acknowledged that quality and sustainability are the two most important aspects that will define the nation’s journey to becoming a developed nation by 2047.

Goyal made the remarks while addressing the convocation ceremony of the first batch of the ‘Gunvatta Gurukul Program’ of the Quality Council of India (QCI). It is an 8-week long training program for the youth.

The Minister expressed confidence in the PM Modi-led government to provide the necessary quality of living to the citizens in his third term, as he has worked towards providing ease of living to people in his second term.

Goyal stressed that the country cannot become a developed nation unless individuals respect the environment and imbibe quality and sustainability as the prime focus.

"To strengthen the young force of India, nearly 20 percent of the total world youth population, QCI celebrates the first convocation ceremony of the first batch of the Gunvatta Gurukul, a ground-breaking initiative aligned with the vision of preparing and propelling youth to become an integral part of the Developed India, a Viksit Bharat, by 2047," he said.

Furthermore, he urged the graduating students to create an ecosystem that respects ‘zero effect and zero defect’ certification, initiative introduced by the Government of India to foster quality excellence across industries and sectors. The main goal of ZED certification is to encourage companies to manufacture products with zero defects while also minimizing their environmental impact.

Lauding the initiative, Goyal underlined that it empowers young minds, prepares them for success in the dynamic job market, and exposes them to a platform to gain insights into governance and public policies.

According to the ministry, 87 young professionals have graduated in the first batch with recognition from QCI for their dedication and achievements.

The second batch is set to commence on February 9, 2024. "With its innovative approach and unwavering commitment to youth empowerment, Gunvatta Gurukul is poised to make a significant impact on India's future," the Minister added.
