IN A country of billion plus people, there should be no shortage of skilled manpower. There’s an immense shortage.
Especially in vocational skills. Even the most conservative estimates put the overall skills gap in the country at over 10 million, and growing. India adds about 12.8 million workers per year out of which 40 per cent are illiterate, about 25 per cent have primary education, and only 35 per cent have middle or high school education.
