Skill development deals with developing a person’s skill set in such a way that they add value to an organization and also to their own career. In India, 12 million people are added to the workforce every year. However, of all, only 4% are formally trained and so the percentage of ready workforce available to us is really minimal and scary. It is not that monetary allocation is any less by the Government of India, rather there is problem in execution. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) is an aggregator in the sector and it acts as the coordination agency when it comes to skill development.
