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.

Re: Is the existing skill training system in India adequate for the requirements of job market? If not, identify deficiencies like poor infrastructure, teaching quality, outdated inputs, etc. What kind of incentive mechanism and support system are required to overcome them both quantitatively and qualitatively?

Hmmm .... its a mixed bag. There is so much taught theoretically, that it is not possible to utilize all of it in a lifetime.

Biggest problem - herd mentality. Everyone makes a hero out of one success story and tries to emulate it.

Some thoughts -

Career counselling needs to start early. People need to know about more options than what their parents can tell them about.

The education needs to be more practical, there needs to be a conscious move towards periodic tests and groupwork / presentations than the annual exams as the preferred mde of evaluation.

Funds to encourage and incubate science and technology led innovations need to start at the school level and progress of promising ideas tracked through its lifecycle.

Flexibility to choose your subject of interest at an early age, do a deep dive, earn a decent living and switch to a new profession when it no longer interests you should be available.

Entrepreneurship needs to be incubated. These need to be India focussed businesses that serve domestic demand and create mass employment. Role models are needed - we need more successful businessmen who are not more than 20 years in age.

Our Skill Training System does not provide for an Individual to take initiatives in furthering his / her Skill and take on a route of Education based on the Modular system Education / Skill Enhancement , which are graded in terms of Marks / grades , which in turn can lead to enhanced Diploma / Degree/ or even Phd.

This concept is being talked in India's Education / Skill Enhavement . This can be done by another body parallel to AICTE which can blend the education and Skill enhancement to raise the quality level . More Institutes for more quantity of outputs in terms of Candidates delivery to meet the Market requirements.

The teachers from Industry to be drwan for Industry based Researches and Skill Enhancement,

Am presenting my general view point on Skill Development Issue ..Here's my take on this
Education and Training has become a major aspect in almost each and every industry.Skill Building has become a main instrument in order to push the economy to new heights by leaps and bounds. Although India is the second largest growing economy in the world, but in present time it is in dire straits due to shortage of skilled Manpower in industry. Skilled Manpower is like a "Blood" for industries as if we have good technology available with us but for optimum utilization, one needs to have skilled manpower.
The Working Group on Power has estimated the need for 0.34 million additional manpower (0.26 million technical and 0.08 million non-technical) during the XIIth plan. In order to overcome this problem, National Skill Development Corporation was created in year 2008. According to which, 500 million skilled people has to be created by 2020.Vocational Training Institutes,ITIs,Polytechnics have been set up in various cities to develop skilled manpower. Employee exchange programs should be encouraged on a large scale so that employees should become well versed with the technologies.
Various industries should use a common platform to make well aware other industries in the same vertical in order to eliminate the "knowledge" gap and leading to employee transformation. Like NPTI has open various centres across countries to tackle shortage of skilled Power Plant operators. They are rigorously trained to serve this purpose. Various other industries have also come up with this concept of training and developing manpower like TATA, Reliance, Jindal etc. Various outsourcing organisations like SAMBHAV (Skill Development Organisation) have tied up with industrial honchos. Thus, although there is a dearth of skilled manpower, India is trying to cover up that big gap in order to rise to new level.

I can say that,India IS doing great by some innovative methods..on a Qualitative Note,things need to be formulated in a better way....
