Policy Commission Launches “Together”
New Delhi, More children means more earners, and more earners means more income! The poor economies should learn from the of poor people. The whole idea behind missions like “Hum Do Hamare Do”, “Bachhe do hi achche”, “Nasbandi” and “Nirodh”(The National condom) has lost its relevance with Government of India finally recognising its citizen as “Human Capital”. The Policy Commission of India has announced a new initiative called “SAATH” which is short for form of “Sustainable Action for Transforming Human Capital” . The goal of “SATH” is to select and build three future role models with states for health systems.
The Huge success of countries like China is due to “Human Capital”. The more people means more competition for job and lesser salary. Lesser salary means cheaper labour and cheaper labour means cheaper product. And Cheaper product means, more demand, more supply of the product. The Government of India has gone one step ahead by proposing to transform Human Capital into skilled Labourers.
