To empower young minds & to create a learning ecosystem, a national scheme has been launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Through this programme, PM Modi's vision is to establish India as a Vishwa Guru.

The aim of the 'YUVA: Prime Minister's Scheme For Mentoring Authors' is to develop a stream of writers who can write on Indian heritage, culture and knowledge subjects and also to provide a window to the aspiring young generation to represent India at an International level by articulating themselves in their mother tongue.

Under this scheme, a pool of authors of below 30 years will be created who are ready to project India on international business. The metored young authors shall become proficient in various genres' writing such as fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, poetry, travelogues, drama, and so on.

The scheme will be executed phase-wise by the National Book Trust of India under the BP Division of the Ministry of Education.

Selection Procedure: A total of 75 participants will be selected through an All India Contest at MyGov by the NBT constituted committee. The Contest will continue from June 04 to June 31, 2021. The participants will be asked to submit a manuscript of 5000 words which will be judged under the Mentorship scheme for its suitability to develop a proper book. The selected participants' names will be released on Aug 15, 2021, on the occasion of Independence Day.

The selected authors, the basis of their manuscript, will be asked to prepare the manuscript for final selection. The winners' entries will be published by Dec 15, 2021. The books will be launched on Jan 12, 2021 on National Youth Day (YUVA Divas).
