Enhancing Skills and Faster Generation of Employment

It is believed that India's economic growth is not generating enough jobs or livelihood opportunities. At the same time, many sectors face manpower shortages. To address both, we need to improve our education and training systems; create efficient and accessible labor markets for all skill categories; and encourage the faster growth of small and micro enterprises.

What is the use of seeking suggestions from public?

Any reformation is incomplete as long as human values are ignored and disrespected. Corruption can never be controlled by corrupt officers. Justice cannot be expected in time from corrupt judges. Corrupt ministers can never ensure good governance. Corrupt Chartered Accountants cannot stop malafide transactions and fraud in financial statements. Corrupt lawyers cannot ensure timely justice with the victim. Corrupt ministers and corrupt departmental heads cannot allow good officers to remain in and around his work place. Economic reformation launched in1991 has helped in multiplying and aggravating the proportion of corruption in public life. Businessmen are given absolute freedom to earn profit as much as they like and this is the main reason behind relentless price rise and this is why price rise has gone beyond control of the administration and the government. Labour reforms or judicial reforms are disliked by all politicians who believe in earning illegal money.

It is therefore not an exaggeration to say that none of the offices responsible for looking after welfare of working class is doing their job properly. It is bitter but undeniable truth. Arbitrary recruitment, forgery in examination, setting with interviewers to pass the test, use of lobby to get good posting and before time promotion, bribe based recruitment and promotion have all become common affairs in all organization. Good employees are sidelined and corrupt employees are getting preferences in all government offices, Banks and PSUs.

Flattery and dishonesty has become the key to success in all fields.


In such position there is no use in framing policy or formulating attractive plans or asking for suggestions from the public to bring about reformation.

Until top ranked officers, ministers, public representatives, politicians and government staff in general become honest and patriot Indians cannot dream of getting justice in any field.

To add fuel to fire, Indian judiciary is corrupt, inactive and inefficient .It takes decades in getting judgments from courts in India. There is lack of adequate quality manpower in courts and hence lacs and cores of cases are allowed to remain pending for years together. Justice delayed is justice denied. Aggrieved person do not like to seek remedy from police department or judiciary.

Everywhere and in every walk of life bribe money plays the prominent role. In such position courts are used to perpetrate crime and carry out rule of injustice.

Even offices of Prime Minister and President of India do not listen to public grievances, not to speak of other offices meant to make effort for redressal of public grievances though there are several such departments. All such departments are working as forwarding agents. They simple forward the complains to concerned office and sleep. None is at all bothered to serve the people though there are called public servants

What is the need of Interview or discretion in recruitment or promotion when most of the officers are corrupt?

What is the value of annual or periodical appraisal of employees or carrying out test for promotion when conducting officials are themselves corrupt .Who cares for merit? None indeed. All top officers keep flatterers and corrupt officials around them to earn more and more bribe and accumulate wealth as much as possible.

Central Government is allowing time bound promotion and seniority based promotion to staff. Why Public Sector Banks are allowing whimsical promotion, arbitrary transfer and fresh recruitment in higher cadres bypassing existing staff of experience of ten to thirty years in banking.

Are banks top executive earning money in recruitment, posting and promotion like other government departments?

Who is accountable for bribe based recruitment and bribe based promotions taking place in banking industry?

Why public petitions pertaining to corruption, injustice in wage revision and posting of corrupt ED and CMD in banks submitted to Prime Minister and Finance Ministers are ignored?

Why bank executives who have earned illegal money and accumulated wealth by lending to bad borrowers or writing off their dues are getting one after other promotion and cream posting.

Are all these possible due to strong lobby of corrupt officials?

Why government is unable to control growing NPA in banks and punish those bank officers whose ill motivated lending and ill motivated management of human resources resulted in increase in NPA.

Same unhealthy practices prevail in all government offices and common men are helpless. What is then use of seeking suggestions for making good plans when executing agencies are ill motivated and corrupt.

After all why is PM silent on all vital issues related to erosion in human values?

Prime Minister wrote letters to Telecom Minister but did not act to ensure that his advice is followed in true spirit. Nation lost lacs of crores of rupees.
Is mere writing of letter or forwarding of letter to concerned officer or office enough to bring about reformation?
PM allowed Kalmadi to spend 70000/ crores of rupees and could not stop malpractice despite the fact that media highlighted various irregularities.PM allowed deal with Devos on S band and later annulled the same in fear of public anger.PM has allowed public sector banks to increase NPA or concea NPA or sell NPA in the name of banking reformation and causing loss after loss to bank in lacs of crores of rupees. To add fuel to fire PM allows debt waiver of forces banks to opt for compromise and sacrifice bank’s assets.
What is happening in this country after all?
Who will save this country from corrupt people?
Can such PM be allowed to cause one after other losses only due to constraints of coalition government? Is it coalition religion to survive in power?
I would like to advice our honorable PM not to malign at least the word religion. Because none of the religions in universe will allow theft of money, or disrespect to human being or compromise with human values. Manmohan Singh should say that corruption is an art used by politicians to acquire or to remain in power.

If Prime Minister of the country can allow corrupt practices, how can he dream of good governance in other offices of central or state government?
How will our learned PM then punish corrupt people as he has been promising since long?

It should be possible for an employer to sack an employee for dishonesty, negligence and inadequate work out put.

I personally feel very pity when I see the young/women workforce of rural India being exploited. The labour laws are properly outlined but the bigger differences is in peoples understanding and general fear of hostile contractors.
For Fair Labour market -
1. Gram Sabha/ Panchayat falling under the Industrial belt should be empowered to reach out the Labour. Like , minimum of 5 or less , can go to Gram Sabha / Panchayat for grievances and subsequently GS / GP should seek clarification from industry. In case of violation of laws GS/GP should demand justice from court of Law. Also, Labour Grievances Forum, like Consumer Forum , needs to be devised.

2. Regular Audits of Contractors along with the Audit Report(including wages) to be pasted in every company for labours to get a feel of audit report, along with their Thumb Impression / Signature

3. In case the labour feels of mismatch in Audit Report he/she can contact to GS/GP or Labour Grievances Forum.

Steps for Improvement : The labour condition can only be improved if the industry performs better and the Contractors are fair to them.
