As per the report on “Skilling India”- produced jointly by FICCI & KPMG India in the year 2018, India occupies a unique and special place in the global skilling ecosystem today. A developing economy with a population of 1.3 billion is by itself exciting. To add to that, the average age of its population is estimated to be within 29 years for the next 6 years – this gives an envious edge over other nations. It is also estimated that by 2022, India will have the maximum number of working age population in the world (population between the ages 15 to 59) who could contribute to the economic growth of the nation. Realising this, the Government of India, through different agencies is focussing on skill development and aims to train an ambitious 500 million people by 2022.
According to 12th Plan Document of the Planning Commission, 85 per cent of the labour force in India has educational qualification up to secondary level within which 55 per cent have an educational qualification only up to the primary level and merely 2 per cent of its workforce has any vocational training. The government along with other agencies is trying to incentivise the students to enrol in higher education and vocational training with increasing demand for skilled labour.
