Dr. Kalam’s Vision 2020: Transforming India into a ‘Developed’ Nation

The ‘People’s President’ Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam might not be with us anymore, but he will always be alive in the ambitious plans he made for our country. India Vision 2020, prepared under the chairmanship of our ‘Missile Man’, is aimed at transforming India into a developed country by concentrating on the five areas of country’s core competency. These five areas are-

  • Infrastructure

  • Education and Healthcare

  • Information and Communication Technology

  • Agriculture and Food Processing; and

  • Strategic industries like space and defense technology

Dr. Kalam's vision 2020Dr. Kalam taught us to make optimum use of technology for the betterment of India and for bringing transparency in its administration . Over the last decade, we have made tremendous improvement in this vertical. We came out as world’s second largest mobile phone using country and the third largest in the field of auto-mobile. The literacy rates have significantly improved, healthcare facilities are about to be at par with those of foreign countries and the revenues from exports have seen a good hike and  Mission for Urban India.

The real estate industry also benefits a great deal from Vision 2020. Infrastructure development planned under the vision will completely transform the skyline of Indian cities. We have taken major steps in the direction of large-scale infrastructure. Now our metro cities have airports of international standards with several of them being underway. The diamond quadrilateral highway scheme, rural roads to connect villages with cities and the continuous development of other connectivity facilities contribute towards the master plan.

All these steps taken in the infrastructure field have supported the development of real estate industry which, in return, is giving it back to the country’s overall development. With every new project launch, several new job opportunities are created that support several families. A wide variety of manpower is needed to carry out any task efficiently. Engineers, architects, planners, legal specialists, accounts management professionals- everyone has to work together in order to develop a particular industry. The improvement of education sector has contributed a lot in this direction.

We have only six years left to achieve Dr. Kalam’s vision of a developed India. Political parties have to work in coordination with every other industry in order to effectively support the plan. Kalam Sir encouraged the youth of India to understand the importance of conservation and lead the way towards a sustainable development. The youth should learn to take responsibility and work in the direction of development with honesty and integrity.
