"Yuva Tarang" is a vibrant celebration of youth-led innovation, creativity, and cultural diversity within the maritime realm. As an integral part of the larger TIM framework, Yuva Tarang unites maritime students from across the nation for an immersive festival experience like no other. Derived from the Hindi words 'Yuva' meaning Youth and 'Tarang' meaning Waves, the festival symbolizes the dynamic energy and potential inherent in the young generation.

Beyond innovation, Yuva Tarang is also a cultural extravaganza, offering a kaleidoscope of performances, exhibitions, and interactive activities that celebrate the rich tapestry of India's maritime heritage and global influences. From traditional dances to modern art installations, each participating institute in Yuva Tarang will be awarded 10 marks to showcase their unique contributions in culture and innovation. These efforts will be judged and the scores will be added to those from the IIM framework to determine the best-performing institute across both Yuva Tarang and the IIM. This integrated scoring system aims to highlight and reward the most creative, innovative, and culturally enriching initiatives, fostering a spirit of excellence and competition among the maritime institutions.

At its core, Yuva Tarang aims to create a ripple effect within the maritime community, inspiring and empowering the next generation of maritime professionals to become catalysts for change and progress. By fostering an environment of collaboration, learning, and expression, this festival seamlessly integrates the aspirations and dreams of the youth with the evolving needs of society, setting the stage for youth-led development and progress within the maritime industry.
