What’s wrong with Skill India and how to fix it?


  1. While outlays on skill development have been increasing, outcomes lag far behind.
  2. Most skill dev. programs offer a crash course module training to rural migrants which lasts 2-3 months. Industry has no stake in this process.
  3. Employers see very little value-addition in such training, and essentially view training companies as manpower sourcing agencies.
  4. In Germany – employers fund the bulk of the programme’s cost through a paid apprenticeship-based model.
