UGC Urges Universities to Endorse Students to Attend Webinar on National Youth Day

On January 12, National Youth Day, the Universities of Grants Commission (UGC) ordered colleges and universities to participate in a webinar. Since 1984, January 12 has been designated as the day to recognise Swami Vivekananda’s birth anniversary. The webinar will take place on January 12 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm and include a separate question and answer period. 

In order to mark the 39th National Youth Day this year, the Office of the Controller General of Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks (CGPDTM) is launching a series of webinars titled “IP Manthan”. The notification, from UGC, said that “periodic discussions will be organized under the IP Manthan series on the importance of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) vis-i-vis the economic and cultural development of the country.” 

The series will be sparked with the issue of ‘how youth can contribute towards the field of IPRs’ being taken up for discussion on January 12. The session will be chaired by Prof Unnat P. Pandit, CGPDTM, India.

Eminent panelists such as Prof. Prabuddha Ganguli, Advisor of VISION-IPR in Mumbai, Dr. Ketaki Bapat, Adviser scientist ‘G’, Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India, Prof. Amogh Dev Rai, Executive Director, Sanrachana Foundation, Dr. Aniruddha Joshi, Founder and CEO, Atreya Innovations, and Dr. A Lakshmanan, Managing Director, Nanoventions, will be present at the event. 

In the notification, UGC has asked the addressees to encourage the students and young people to participate in the webinar. There is no registration required to be a part of the webinar and those interested can join it through this link: 

In 1863, Swami Vivekananda was born in Kolkata. He dedicated his life to fostering a sense of national awakening and urged the country’s youth to usher in a renaissance. National Youth Day is observed nationwide in schools and colleges and advocates for greater freedom to make decisions based on shifting circumstances. Annual events include lectures, music, youth conventions, seminars, yoga, presentations, essay-writing contests, recitation contests, and sporting events.
