The ASSOCHAM paper recently published that nearly 300 million people of the age group 18-50 are rendered jobless just because they do not have any employability skills while on the other hand,the country is witnessing an acute scarcity of skilled manpower in the manufacturing, service and agricultural sectors which is draining the economy of several crores an year.

The planning commission estimates that only 20 % of the 12.8 million entering the workforce get some formal training and if the scenario continues to remain so, there would be a skilled manpower shortage of about 46 million by 2020.

Even the PM Modi emphasized that , “It is a country of young people. The 65 percent population of the country happens to be under the age of 35 years. Our country has the largest number of youths in the world. Today, the world needs a skilled workforce. Today, India also needs a skilled workforce. At times. We have young people, they are unemployed but the kind of young people we seek for are not available. If we have to promote the development of our country then our mission has to be “skill development” and “skilled India”.
