India will need 10-crore skilled workforce by 2022

New Delhi, Aug 9 (UNI) India will need about 10-crore skilled personnel across 24 key sectors by 2022 that make up for about 95 per cent of the Indian economy. And gearing up to meet this challenge of providing skilled workforce, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is focusing on a number of training modules and would be imparted through quality conscious institutes like ITI spread across the country. Talking to journalists here today, Union Skill Development Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy said since the launch of "Skill India" two years ago, the Ministry has trained 1.02-crore workers and formulated more than 2000 courses of skill development. Mr Rudy said efforts were underway to put in place a sound ecosystem of training workers, imparting quality skills to them and also certify them so that their employability factor in the industry gets a solid footing. "Those getting out of ITI are being considered for giving an educational certificate equivalent to CBSE. We will be finalising this arrangement soon,’’ he added. The Minister said industrial training institutes were also getting upgraded and audited for their quality. He said the Skill Development Ministry has tied up with the armed forces from where nearly 60,000 personnel retire every year to impart them skills in accordance with their inclination which would come as a big chunk of trained manpower. Mr Rudy said the emphasis was also on getting finances through MUDRA scheme, banks and financial institutions so that trained personnel could turn into entrepreneurs and provide jobs to others.
