About the RFP Document
This RFP provides information regarding the Project, Scope of Work, Technical requirements and other related information to the bidder(s).

In particular, ASDM seeks a specific proposal responsive to this RFP in every respect and detail, rather than a mere compilation of materials and promotional information used in other transactions.
Scope of Work
India is poised to experience a demographic dividend for the next 25 years, due to an increase in the proportion of young and working age group to the total population. Such a rise in the youth population is a window of opportunity as it reduces the ratio of dependents to total workers leading to higher rates of savings, investment and growth. This change in the age structure, if properly utilized, will result in demographic dividend, which provides immense growth opportunities to the nation. The provision of marketable skills among youth is still a challenge to reap opportunities of the demographic dividend. India, over the period of time, has become knowledge based economy with a large number of capable and educated people residing in the country.
