Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has urged the industry to ramp up spending on creation of trained manpower in the country. Addressing the launch event of the Skill Connect Roadshow in New Delhi today the minister observed that there is a disconnect between the country’s education system and employability.
He said the government will carve a roadmap for the 24 million youngsters entering the workforce every year.
The roadshow will aim to drive awareness about various skilling initiatives of the state and central governments, and is a step to supporting industry associations in proactive efforts towards building an industry-ready skill force in India, especially under the Apprenticeship Programme.
It will be rolled through a series of workshops and seminars in more than 20 locations across India.
