Importance of Technical and Professional Education in India

Technical education will help a person to become self employed even if he does not get a job. This can help to reduce the number of unemployed persons and will also help in the economic development of the country.

Education For Self Supporting

The aim of education is not only to literate a person, education should be self supporting. In the view of Mahatma Gandhi, 'Literacy in itself is no education'. Only becoming able to read and write books does not fulfil the aim of education. Education should help a person to become self dependent. For this, the importance of technical and professional education has taken place. The country which is strong in technical education, becomes economically sound and developed. Technical and professional education helps a person to become self dependent or getting employed in any related sector instead of depending on government to provide him employment.

Necessity of Technical Education in India

In India, many people get education with higher degrees but stay unemployed after completing the education. Because they run after the government or private jobs and wait until they get a suitable job. Sometimes they don't get employment or get a job which doesn't match their qualification. This leads to frustration and harassment in the youth of our country. So, now a days the importance is given to technical or professional education. When a person is trained technically in a particular field, he does not depend on the jobs, he can become self employed by starting his own work.

There are different fields of technical education like Agriculture, Veterinary, Engineering, Medical field etc. There are also short courses like tailoring, weaving, plumbing, typewriting, and in many other fields which helps people to be self employed. A person gets training and knowledge in a particular field which he can use as a path of earning to live his life and to support his family.

Now a days, many institutes are providing technical and professional courses in our country. State wise technical education board has been set up to look after the necessity and importance of technical education and to implement it properly. After independence of India, the technical education is given importance in the five year plans. Technical education has to be developed for the economic development of our country. In the field of agriculture, if a technically qualified person starts his own agriculture work, he will be able to use his knowledge to increase his production. This example is applied to other fields also. Technical and professional education will help to solve the unemployment problem in our country and will also provide financial stability to the people.
