    Government can play a vital role by contributing to employability and skill education.

    Under the present situation of our economy, there are more unemployed youth with less employment opportunity. Govt. are encouraging more on formal education rather than skill development since independent. In the other side due to shortage of fund mixed economic system introduced resulting uneven distribution of industrial setup. The private owner mainly functioning on profitability sectors with technical skilled workforce and trying to adjust the shortfall in every sectors with its responsibility. Now the situation goes worsen and it is high time to ratify the situation by improving infrastructural situation in all sectors by themselves or with jointly with the private sectors. The govt. should introduced higher education with skill development for everyone to make more employability along with industry development for the overall improvement of the country. What is your view, please share.

    A change in the education pattern is very important. More focus should be there on Skill development which gives the individual better chances of getting employed. The new education policy is a step in that direction and may give good results if implemented properly. Let us wait and see how it delivers.
    Becoming self-employed and creating jobs is also the need of the hour. Instead of waiting for somebody to give a job, one should think of starting his own work. Many small businesses are emerging and the government is encouraging such persons by giving them loans and other facilities. Once you do that you can offer jobs to the needy and you can become an employer. Thinking in that line is also a good way.
    Creating so many jobs for all unemployed is not an easy task. So encouraging industry and seeing that those industries will employ our young people is the responsibility of the governments in the country.

    The present situation in terms of employment in our country is not very encouraging due to various reasons and the chief being is lack of demand of end products produced from the industries. This may be attributable to absence of customers facing economic crisis.
    In this regime, it would be better to curtail the cost of production with the deployment of manpowers having multifaceted skills so as to manage the production cost. The employees should be encouraged to be familiar with the different set of skills. It would be far better than providing them higher education in the area of technology. In the present scenario, it will be helpful.

    The author has raised a valuable post and this must be discussed. Having sensed that after pass out the chances of getting the job is less and nil, the central govt has started skill development courses at various towns and cities and the college students are encouraged to take at least one skill development course and 70 such centers are spread across the country. The central govt is doing every bit to encourage and create employment through skill or one can go for the personal business with skill development to which the banks are coming forward to finance micro business proposals.

    The author has rightly said that the more skill development there is, the more possibilities of employment creation will also increase. If we look at the private sector, then it is known that private companies keep organizing activities or courses from time to time for the development of new skills in their employees. They know very well that human is an important resource which is primary in every field of work, but if no effort is made about its skill development from time to time, then its capabilities may also be relatively low, so it is very important to understand the value of skill development.

    Self employment and skill based education is the only way to high employability. Our population is very large and if every young person is thinking that he should get a job after completing MA/MSc/BE/MBA/PhD etc then he is totally wrong in his assumptions. Today demand of qualified people is less than their production which is not a healthy situation. Govt is trying to change the situation by skill based education but the situation of employment is not going to improve unless we create more lower jobs and a few higher jobs. In some companies one person is doing the job of 10 persons and taking salary of 4 persons. This trend has to be checked. In our country anyone getting a salary more than Rs 40000-50000 per month is actually getting the salary of some unemployed persons. Let the company reduce his jobs and give job to 2-3 more persons. Govt also should decrease the salary of Govt people because it has created a great imbalance in the society.

    I also think that education requires a paradigm shift from its conventional approach and skill based certificates and diplomas will be much more beneficial for creating self employment or employment in factories and other such workplaces. Academic pursuits should be reserved only for a few students who have that particular inclination and aptitude for research like things.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    The author has raised the issue of employability and employment opportunities for unemployed youth. He stressed on skills development and vocational training courses. I agree with the author that we need radical changes in our education system. We are still following Macaulay who got implemented this education system in our country merely to produce clerical staff for British Indian government and we are still clinging to his style. We have changed our courses during this long period but basics and fundamentals of Macaulay are still followed. We need such education system which enables a student to stand on his feet instead of waiting for a job.
    We have no jobs for youth and sadly they are destroying their lives by killing their precious time and waiting for suitable opportunity for jobs in vain.

    The topic of skill-oriented education has come up a number of times in this forum. In our country for the past so many years, skill development for employability is being implemented. There are a number of organizations working in this direction for the past so many years. In our country, people prefer to learn a skill while working under a skilled person. They will acquire the skill while earning. There are many schemes introduced by the Central Government and various State Governments for skill development. To say that the present education is only formal and there is skill development is only ignorance. Previously, I had mentioned in the forum on the same subject about some schemes. There was one Modular Employable Skill course which was offered through the Industrial Training Institutes all over the country. For some time I was with such an organization that offers skill development courses under the Andhra Pradesh Government. In Polytechnics all over the country, a scheme by the name 'Community Polytechnic' sponsored by the Ministry of Human Resources Development under the Government of India is running for the development of skills to the youth. There are many such organizations offering skill development courses for since long. The youth want white-collar jobs as far as possible. That is the reason why they go for traditional courses.
