India missed the Industrial Revolution; it cannot afford to miss the Computer Revolution.

Education

Shri Gandhi took some excellent initiatives to improve the literacy rate in India. During his tenure as Prime Minister, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas were established. The New Education Policy, which aimed to give a new thrust and direction to education in India, was also introduced in 1986.

Environment

Shri Gandhi’s interest on preserving natural resources and the environment was visible through his actions. Sensing the danger to the planet and life, he brought about the Environment (Protection) Bill, 1986 before the Parliament. The Bill was passed by both Houses and received the President’s assent on May 23, 1986.

Decentralization

Shri Rajiv Gandhi believed that decentralisation of power was essential to ensure that the fruits of development reached the grassroots. The strengthening of Panchayati Raj institutions thus became central to his developmental plan. A bill to amend the Constitution and provide constitutional status and safeguards to Panchayats was drafted and introduced in the Lok Sabha on May 15, 1989, as the Constitution (64th Amendment) Bill.
