Amravati: Union Public Service Commission Chairman, Prof D P Agrawal, today said the educated youth were "actors of social change" and basis for development.

Addressing the 28th convocation of Sant Gadgebaba Amravati University here, UPSC Chairman talked highly about the potential of the youth.

Agrawal also said the skills the youth needed in the future would be different from what they learn in classrooms.

Observing that the youth now demand a more cosmopolitan society that is a full-fledged member of the global economy, he said they are more likely to start their own businesses and contribute to a more vibrant economy.

Computer literacy and education were eradicating the caste barriers, he said. "Urban youth are more concerned with their professional ambition than the caste."

"Young people are a crucial segment... they are the basis for future development and are social actors of change and can serve as a pressure group to lobby governments in defining their priorities," he said.
