Why ? Skill Upgradation

  • India as a country has an advantage when it comes to absolute number of workforce but the industry is facing a crucial shortage of “skilled” and “qualified” manpower.
  • By 2012, it is estimated that India will have around 57 million people who are school-drop-outs or illiterates and hence this segment needs special focus.
  • As per industry analysis, nearly 75 to 80 million jobs will be created in India over the next five years. It is estimated that almost 75 to 90% of all additional employment will require some vocational training.
  • The current capacity of institutions and initiatives which are imparting skill development in the country is 3.1 million per annum against country’s target of skilling 500 million people by 2022.
