This is a 15-day long, national train journey that will take you 8000 kilometers across the India, to understand and build the India of smaller towns and villages through enterprise.

Distinct Differences From Other Offerings
The main motto of JAGRITI Yatra is:
“Inspire and get inspired. Change and lead change in others. Learn and share your life's lessons. Build and help build India through Enterprise. Discover India and a new Indian inside you. All outside the comfort of your homes, in a moving train across India ”.
The motive itself makes Jagriti Yatra different from others. This program will make you meet role models, change-makers, leaders who started their journey to bring a change and made a difference to thousands of lives. 500 youngsters, selected from thousands of applicants, many from smaller towns and villages, join the Yatra every year, with the goal of creating awareness and start a movement of 'building India through enterprise.
Jagriti Yatra is not like all the other programs in which the applicants will be selected on the criteria of marks rather it considers motivations and values of the candidate. They consider the candidate’s ability to think creatively, their understanding of India’s pressing problems, and the commitment and approach to solving these. The Yatra also seeks not only the entrepreneurs but also empower individuals who wish to build India through their professions and work spheres.
They will definitely provide you to meet atleast a role model in each destination of their journey. The male and female yatris will be provided with 2 compartments separately in the train which is rebuilt according to their convinience where they need to stay for 15 days. This yatra is the safest one as two fully qualified doctors also accompany with them. Meals may be distributed in packets at destinations after deboarding the train. Bottled water is also provided through regular distribution of water. No outside food is allowed on the train due to risk of food poisoning.
On considering all the above factors we can say that Jagriti Yatra definitely differs from others in almost all the aspects.
