Skilling for Jobs of Today: Inputs Sought

One of the biggest issues in India is that most of the employed people are underemployed and many of those who are unemployed don't have the skills needed. On the other hand, companies have job openings but candidates don't meet the criteria. In such a scenario it is critical to Skill India effectively. Via this post, we want to seek your very specific inputs on helping identify roles/positions where there is a shortage of skilled workforce.

We will ensure that from Budget to Skill India, atleast the Government is aware how Skill India mission has to be modified so people are right skilled to find jobs and those under employed can get better jobs.

We look forward to your inputs! more

Skill India should seriously address the Group who are not skilled in their jobs such as painting,plumbing,plastering carpentry etc etc,and they should be given certificate of excellence in the given field.
The job is very tough and it addresses the larger group of people.You need charitable institutions and dedicated teachers to carry out such training courses. more  
PRESENT philosophy of employment can never generate employment; it will kill the opportunities. traits required for the job must be honestly matched with the abilities possessed by the people hired and proper performance evaluation system should be evolved. more  
Not only this, identification of marketable and profitable products of both conventional and non conventional AS WELL AS THE INSTITUTIONS FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LIKE 'NPL, NCL, DMRL, DLRL, MMTC, RR LABS shall be given re-birth.
Energizing District Industries Centers, formation of District Development Councils, Expanding Services of STCs are also necessary besides Technical Training and , PREFERRING ONLY THE SKILLED AND TALENTED IN AND FROM PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS please. more  
Total education should be changed to include skill sets along with Pure bookish Knowledge - Till then the Jobs problems can not be resolved more  
It is said that if you read, you understand little, if you hear, you understand little more, if you see, you understand more and if you do, you understand it fully. I have written in other forum also, let there be lacs of ITIs, Thousands of polytechnics and hundreds of engineering colleges.
There is hospital attached to every good medical college. Similarly, let there be one industry be attached to every engineering college. It should be made compulsory for each industry to take vocational trainees (in proportion to its work force), apprentice trainees and graduate trainees. Engineering college, should charge minimum fee but should earn through taking projects from industries.
In the primary school itself, "less teaching more doing" should be followed.
Selection of teachers should not be on the basis of marks. A high scorer need not be a good teacher due to his inability of speak, express before the students.
Remuneration for teachers should be comparable to that in industries to attract good teachers. Today teaching is last preference. Generally in colleges retired experts go for teaching. Young person does not prefer teaching. more  
Preferring Bit Questions instead of Precise since 90s resulted in reduction of Subject Knowledge and Skills. more  
Yes, portals like and have job openings displayed. But, if you look at most of these, they are high level and there is not much clarity on what the job entails. There is a perennial confusion between responsibility, skill and experience. While these portals would be one place to look for jobs, the other way is for everyone who hires to put up a list of skills in a common place. It could start with those who pay GST and these skills could be integrated with the GST portal. All the GST payers could add the skills they need for their jobs in the next 6 months. This does not have to be detailed. This would give an idea of what skills are needed and the Skill development tailored accordingly. more
