NUA-O programme budget has been revised to Rs 315 Cr to further empower the youth

Bhubaneswar:22/2/24: The Odisha Cabinet led by CM Naveen Patnaik today approved revised funding for the NUA-O initiative under the scheme of the Integrated Youth Development Programme (IYDP). The programme budget has been revised to Rs 315 Cr to further empower the youth to realise their true potential.

The Odisha Government has recently introduced a pioneering youth empowerment initiative called “Nua-O,” symbolizing ‘New Odisha’ and heralding a transformative era for youth empowerment across the state. This innovative program is currently being rolled out statewide to ensure that the young population is not only fully enabled, motivated and engaged but also empowered to realize their full potential.

Within the program initiatives, there is a focus on promoting sports, cultural & literary activities, and social work specifically tailored for youth within the educational sphere. The programme also includes organizing sports competitions designed for youth from diverse backgrounds, hosting ‘NUA-O’ district fests, and arranging creative competitions that engage youth in progressive endeavours through digital platforms.

Continuing with the ethos envisioned under ‘Nua-O,’ the government is committed to expanding program activities. This includes organizing district and state-level sports competitions to broaden sports outreach at the grassroots level. The initiative also aims to increase student participation in district-level “Nua-O” Fest events and introduce Nua-O scholarships for students. The program budget has now been revised to Rs. 315 Cr.
