FIVE CRITICAL PILLARS OF INDIAS SKILL

STORY
Look carefully at your childs innocence, Intelligence and dedication. What
future(say year2030) will he/she have? bright or gloomy? We are shaped by our
self determination,goals,skills, opportunities we get and how favourable or
unfavourable is the external business and social environment in which we live
and work. The future of the children will be shaped by key critical business and
social environment decisions which our government should take now. Absence
of such decisions will create a gloomy and bleak future for our children. One such
critical decision before government is building skills for youth for employability
.Success or failure of India skill story depends on five critical pillars

1-JOB CREATION(EMPLOYEMENT GENERATIONS)


2-SKILLS STANDARDS .
3-SCALE
4-RESPECT FOR SKILLED WORKERS
5-INCLUSIVENESS

JOB CREATION
56% of Indians(68 crore) today are less than 25 years of age. They will start
seeking jobs .The nation needs to create 260 to 280 lakh jobs every year. During
the last five years India could create only 22 lakh jobs per year.(ie we are only on
10% of our most critical goal).We need to create labour intensive jobs in agro
processing, rural infrastructural development ,healthcare ,manufacturing and
hospitality Creating a skilled workforce without labour intensive job creation is
most dangerous for the Indian society.

SKILLS STANDARDS
We need to be world-class globally deployable professionals, therefore it is essential our
occupational standards, course curriculum and faculty is amongst the best in the world
.Therefore it is imperative we create cadre of highly trained and motivated faculty and
curriculum experts.

SCALE
We need industry /sector specific institutions each with rural presence, expertise and
robust processes and capability to skill 08to10 lakh youth per year across India in

sectors like manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality agriculture, construction, automobile,


textile ,electronics etc .

RESPECT FOR SKILLED WORKERS


Indias GER(gross enrolment ratio )is 11%, i.e. only 11% Indians study at college level.
What about the 89%who do not go to the college? .How do we create and give respect to
them as skilled professional?. An auto mechanics contribution to society is as important
as an engineers contribution . How through structured wage differentiation and media
success stories we build image of them as skilled workforce in the society ?The way
India build brand image of IT professionals. It is the most difficult social challenge in India
as we respect people who do mind work rather than skilled handwork .

INCLUSIVENESS
India is a socially complex and diverse land. The skill story will be successful if the youth
from SC,ST,OBC,BPL across all districts are skilled on global skill standards across all key
industry sectors for employability across the world. This can only happen only if
government invests very heavily in skilling these youth for employability, not as a part of
any government scheme but as a world class institutional framework .Public Private
Partnership (PPP) models will not work as 56 % Indians work in agriculture & another
37% work in MSME (micro small and medium enterprises).1% Indians working in urban
corporate India have very little understanding of aspirations and social reality of rural
poor who have to be skilled for employability in their social milieu.
