For me the main reason behind that education. There is no proper system in rural areas. The government doesn't take GD initiative for Govt school they give the students for a laptop, but they don't take a program how they use them, how the student can in hence the skill. I think that government should make a policy for long turn four in hence the skills.

There is a shortage of skilled manpower mainly because of our education system.

* The syllabus is usually outdated and has no connect with what is being applied in the industry.

* The teachers focus on concepts. The students don't understand them and hence mug up the answers before the exams with the sole intention of passing the exam.

* Application of the concept is not taught and when a student asks a doubt from outside the prescribed text book, more often than not he is told "This is out of syllabus and will not come for the exam". This is the problem.

Hello friends.

In my opinion India didn't have a shortage of skilled manpower but the thing is that here every one wants to become engineers, doctor, etc in which today everyone competing and at the end the result is only 10 % students were become engineer and doctor.

The thing is that everyone going for this only in which there is probably less chance. In my opinion student should do some thing unique to get the success in their life.

At last I want say that "People don't know what they need until you give it to them" just think about it.

Thank you.

Hi friend.

You ever thought that why our well educated peoples migrate or shifted to US or UK. Because our government doesn't give proper respect, money &proper facilities to them. So according to me this is also one of the reason of the scarcity of skilled manpower India.

My dear friends with lots of respect I want to give my opinion as follows. As per report India is having 3% of urban and 2% of rural unemployment, more than lakh of highly educated people are unemployed and most of Indian companies, government organisation like defence lacks of manpower of their standard. Why? this is because of our education system. We need a change in the pattern.

In India shortage of skilled manpower because our educational system are not that much strong means many teachers appointed by illegally because of that the teachers are not capable to give knowledge to students. The students mug up the theory knowledge and put in the answer sheet. Our educational system theory is important than practical because of that India lacking skilled manpower.

My Dearest Friends, with huge love and affection, I seek to submit as follows:

It is now worthless to talk about past bad practices and people. Bad people are not bad really because they want to be so. It is very very difficult for an individual to remain good in adverse atmosphere.

My point is that we should all together decide to bring a change. It is a matter of just resolving to align our dreams for our motherland India. It is the time to decide to throw away the shackles of inactivity, negative attitude, laziness and individualism.

Let us resolve to contribute to positive attitude in the society. We should firmly stand by our visionary Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in all the schemes he has initiated such as Make in India, Swachh Bharat, Digital India, Ek Bharat-Shreshth Bharat, Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao and many more. I feel extremely fortunate to see India getting such an immense leader who has already conquered the world attention.

The simple way to contribute solidly is to perform each of our small or big activity most perfectly and encourage friends to do so I wish everyone to join hands to make our nation proud of us!

According to me the main reason for shortage of skilled lever is that the people who should not be a teacher become a teacher and most talented people become an employ. So they can not guide student as required. The another reason is that in India at the basic level some of the teachers joined as a government teacher illegally so that they are not able to teach.

India has a lot of board (like -ICSE, CBSE, State boards, NIOS etc). It does not shows only the board but also filtrate the rich and poor people of our society. You will be sea that any politician's, IAS office's son etc don't study with state board. So I think its also a reason of shortage of skilled labour.

My opinion is that regarding to this topic is that, nowadays students of India is just learning what is in their textbooks or whichever books. They won' t want to learn real meaning of that. They just blindly learn or read whatever given in the books.

They never try to understand what that's mean if students will try to learn about different topics as well as understanding actual meaning of that. So this also can help in improvement in Indian skilled power.

So far as I think India has skilled persons but the main problem is in our educational system. They are not providing too much facilities for the students to grow their practical knowledge to research new thing. So the students are not having too much knowledge. That's the main reason for the shortage of skilled people in India.

Hi friends,

The main reason for the shortage of skilled person in India is that having lot of fear in them. They have so much in their minds but they don't know how to express them. And the other most important thing is feeling of shy. They mostly have the feeling of guilty. Keeping out all these India is not shortage of skilled person. So few people come out daringly by expressing their ideology. Every cloud has a silver lining likewise everyone in society is skilled person.

According to me India has skilled peoples but due to the lack of proper attention and environment they are not growing like other countries. Many talented student's wants to grow him/her self but due to lack of Money and guidance they are not growing. Ex-like in present time all works are totally depending on computer but due to money problem many students can't purchase so that's why knowledge about that particular areas are stopped. According to me government of India highly responsible for this if they should be providing all these things which is required for study then the students become talented And ratio of skilled person in India become increased.

If the leader's make some rule for the study like they do inspection in the colleges/schools in proper way makes basic study of the students solid then I hope in future skilled person are increased in our India.

Hello, I would like to add a few words. I am a musician and an entrepreneur from India. From what I have seen, India is filled with people who pay attention to high level learning more than basic and that is the actual problem. Every Indian who is put in a state to compete with a foreigner of the same discipline is out-shined by the peer in minute degrees and that is because the basics not being right.

My opinion is that in India no shortage of skilled manpower but most of the manpower are skilled but we have to shine them continuously. Eg in the sat-sung, they make the time frame so that these things attack on their mind continuously. So same pattern here everybody know about wrong & right but we have to show them their potential, passion, hard work, soft work etc. Then you will see the effectiveness.

I want to state my opinion regarding this topic. I do not agree with it first that we have shortage in skill power. We too have skilled people who work for many companies. But they lack is proper guidance. The government is responsible for this. Due to poverty only mainly facilities are not available to the people who are talented.

I am concerned about the shortage of skilled manpower in sectors that depend on ITIs and the likes. Till some time back, there were institutes, inferior to ITIs but which were developing youngsters some skills for some trades. It was in a way productive. However now they are changing their lines as they say that no more youngsters are coming for such trades. Reasons are many. Salaries are DISPROPORTIONATELY lower for them compared with what their friends with some higher qualifications earn. So naturally an aversion to be an worker is developing. Second, the charges by even by such second rung institutes have become unaffordable for those who are interested. The net result is industry is suffering. I can bringin AC industry as an example. There are answers, but as long term vision is lacking at higher levels, no initiative is coming through.

My suggestion is for various associations/bodies/technical groups/non profit NGOs must initiate free training, or training with stipend during training from affected trade companies, and also fix a sort of minimum remuneration for them as they come out.

If this is not attempted immediately, the future of at least such trades look very bleak to me.

And I am not an AC mechanic, but a qualified AC engineer running my own branded dealership business, getting affected day by day!

What is the impinging problem now?: whether lack of skill or lack of industrial development in accommodating the vast workforce. Consider a Country like Japan after 1945 went for mass recruitment and selection process from schools and colleges. It was on the job training (OJT) that trained, shaped and molded the vast manpower according to its need. TO my mind it occurs that still India needed a rapid expansion of industrialization. If everyone can drive cycle, car and use computer within one month there there is no need skill at all. Given a chance everyone can perform better.

Hi All,

It is a harsh reality that we Indians lack in skilled manpower and what we have is not enough and not being utilized properly. Probably now it is time to change our study patterns and develop them in a more constructive manner. Our Government of India should now start a crusade (Set of rules/laws to be followed strictly) from 3rd or 4th grade and beyond where we get to know our hobbies or our likings towards something constructive (sports, dancing, singing, liking towards pets plants, pets, carpentry etc. ).

Equal importance should be given to the vocational activities, because we as humans tend to develop a difference between our likings and dislikings from our early age. Definitely our interests change as we grow but we will have a lot of options to decide from the practical exposure. We never forget our projects, experiments and maths problems, do we? This is because these are the kinds of practical knowledge in which indulged our minds more and more until we have solution.

Just try to remember a small experiment where we distilled water from impurities by using tubes, water, heat and finally vapour. Can you ever for get it? You might forget the names of the chemical reactions but you would never forget how distillation process works. Our single practical experiment has a vital impact on our mind due to which our understanding grows to the wider perspective of how things work.

Today the need is not just to be educated but how skillful you are? It is like our education system makes us educated but not qualified. To qualify we should have specialized skills.

I hope my thoughts are reachable to the right personnels as it will help our education standard and society to grow more. I have a lot of thought that keep popping in my mind but do not have the right people to share with.

Please give your comments if you like or dislike my thought as this might bring out a lot of change that can help us to make our nation grow strong. It is only this time to find out solutions to our problems instead of just discussing and cursing our government for our present situation.

I too have a question that Indian people are lack in their practical knowledge?

NO, the indians are not lacking in their knowledge, they have immense knowledge but the way of educating the people is in a wrong way, many foreign countries are coming to India to recruit a talented Indian people to their companies, this shows that indians were skilled but the government of India is not utilising in a proper manner, if the Indian government launches schools and colleges in every nook and corner of the country then all the peoples in inaccessible areas also educated, and in this we can overcome our shortage of skilled manpower in india, our education system should be changed, our education system should be in a practical oriented, during their schooldays itself they should have been teached how to implement their technical skills in their practical life.

I finally finish my speech by saying that.

Hello Everyone.

We live in a country of 1.2 billion population and still we have shortage of trained, skilled and practical people. What a shame for us. But think who is bringing such circumstances. Of course our sure guess will go to our Government responsible for this education system. Yep they are but what about us. I think we are more responsible for such result more than our concerned authority. Suppose today you get placement offer from two companies during your study at college in final year. Lets say one is from India and other from US. Where will we choose to go? Almost 95% of people will choose to go abroad unless they have some their personal issues. Reason being is that they provide us far better environment, a comfortable life and salary that most of us shake hands with them. What benefit did our nation get from you then?

You will awkward to know that HRD ministry spends about 400 crores out of which only 50 crores is taken from students as fees every year in IITs. And Sarcasm is that it is spent for serving to nations other than India.

It is also true that our education system is not that much updated as per the current scenario. We Indians are rich in theoretical part but we can't even bulb a light by connecting wires together such is our practical skill today. The reason behind this all is our corrupt politicians who are taking no interest in bringing change to it is not a topic that will bring ransum to them.

So what we are required is to discuss these issues with our concerned authority right from the grass root label, i.e. University label which can further increase the attention of our national authority. And at the same time Each of Everyone of us should take oath that we are going to contribute something to this nation No matter where we go or from what field be belong.

I obey with you. Really skilled manpower shortage in India due to less knowledge in practical things. Just think once on rural areas without any training some people create wonders in technology who told them to how to do it, no one. They put their theoretical knowledge into practical things. Thus why they did it right. So, in our education system stress is high that's what the problem to think freely, whenever that stress is goes on then our education system trained skilled manpower. Then we escape from shortage of skilled manpower.

Hello everyone!

To the best of my knowledge today India's literacy is more or less 70-72%. Since India is a country of huge population, it reflects clearly vast number of people are still uneducated. We can't anticipate skilled job from them. MNC's demands are well qualified employee with perfection for the manpower strength in the company. India seems lagging in this sector. There are deficiencies of institutions also, which could produce skilled manpower in quick successions as compared to japan, US etc.

Our government introduces plans which could give guarantee employment (like NREGA) , but thing which Indian economy needs pretty badly today is the source from where they could gain skills. The plannings of the government are totally flawed. They don't make a well established successful Indian, instead they are making labors with a pathetic job. Government isn't providing opportunities to learn and growth, but they are enhancing those schemes which could help them to stand in center and states. Every politician know this fact pretty well, but they has to indulge in their own life also. The situation how economy suffering from crisis, doesn't bother to upper echelon bureaucrats including politicians.

INDIA is a country with lots of great minds and manpower. But everything is going in vain because of the lack of practical education which helps develop greater skills in man. Practical education alone cannot improve skilled manpower there are other reasons also which has to taken care of. If the people of India are skilled in proper manner there is no doubt that India would soon be a developed country. This is the responsibility of our government and each and everyone of us.

The government should give opportunities so that the intelligence and talent of our countrymen will be seen and it will not be wasted.

We know that recently MNCs recruited students of IIT with a package of 1.2 crore rupees.

This proves the capability of people in India. The thing is we are lacking of resources which mould the youth to desired shape by making them skillful. Education became a business in India which is boon for youth making them lacking of skills.

Though there are highly skillful people in India their number is not comparable to population in India. So I agree with the fact that India is in shortage of skilled manpower.

Hello Friends,

From my point of about "skilled manpower shortage in India" is that India has got skilled manpower but after people doing graduation they fly to developed country like USA, UK because here in India there is less money being paid as compared to other developed country like USA when they go to other country they do settle there. NASA has got 30% of people are from India, Microsoft has got 20% people are from India, in every sector you will see Indian are working in whole word because of their skills. India has got such skills that they can do any work depend upon the demand.

In India, graduate student who wants to do research on some specific topic they think that they will not able proceed research here because of lack of proper education system, lack of infrastructure, lack of good mentor so, they have go to the other developed country like USA.

In India, our education system have following drawbacks:

1. Lack of infrastructure.

2. Lack of good teacher in government school.

3. In our education system we concentrate more on theoretical knowledge, and we ignore practical knowledge.

- When you will go in any industries you will see that only 20% of theoretical knowledge are implemented so, I think we should concentrate more on practical knowledge.

4. Lack of proper guidance.

5. Government ignorance.

As we know India has population of 1.26 billion and second largest populated country in the world after china. So, India has got lot of manpower but they are less skilled. In India, labour is very cheap many foreign company Walmart, Apple, Microsoft, Google, BMW, Audi are investing in India because they got there job done in.

Less cost and they pay less amount to India because here employment is less there is competition among people so, they are ready to work even at less salary.

- Government should open new research centre, concentrate on industries, improve education system, good infrastructure, pay more to employee so, they will not leaves our motherland.

Thank you.

Yes at some places where education can't reach at that places the people are not well educated but it does not mean Skilled manpower is shortage in India.

Hello everyone,

Let's face it we inherited our modern systems from the British who were interested mainly in ruling the country efficiently and make wealth for their home country, Britain. So our educational system, in Western model, was designed by the British rulers to create a legion of 'babus' - essentially clerks - who would assist the Brits in effectively administering this country. The Brits were not interested in our ingenuity, creativity or sense of enquiry. They were not particularly interested in developing a scientific temper in their Indian subjects because all technology was profitably imported from Britain. It made sense for the Brits to make us literate but not necessarily well educated and enlightened. For genuine education one had to cross the seas and seek enlightenment in some English school and university. No wonder most of our Indian intellectuals in the 19th and 20th century were 'English Educated' from abroad.

Unfortunately, after Independence, we continued with the same education system we had inherited. Our system lays over emphasis on cramming theory; practical application is very much given the short shrift. Think of what happens to a child in school, if he or she is fortunate enough to be in one; from an early age we are taught to learn by rote, we are discouraged to ask questions lest we embarrass the class teacher! Our education systematically kills our curiosity and creativity. We are forced to learn a whole lot of outdated rubbish which has very little practical value only because it is in our syllabus.

Having studied in one of India's premier institutes - IIT - I can tell the difference a good education does. Our schools and colleges worships mediocrity. Who is to blame? Our educators - they are fossils from another era. They are more interested in perpetuating the old system to preserve their august position. How many of them open the windows of their mind to see where the rest of the world headed?

After Independence we did start some world-class educational institutes such as the IITs and IIMs which recognised and rewarded merit (and not how much money you can fork out to enter to these hallowed portals) but short-sighted politics has started dumbing-down the standards to a lower common denominator level.

It is the native intelligence of Indian students that is our saving grace. We are an innately intelligent people compared to many and therefore, it is no wonder that we thrive when we find a place where our talent is recognised and encouraged to flourish.

We will continue to churn out 'unemployable' educated people and bemoan the lack of skilled manpower till we sweep out the antiquated education system of ours. Countries that allow young people to question the status quo and find a better way tomorrow obviously progress.

To unleash the tremendous potential young Indians possess we need to forthwith update our education system and get rid of those who are comfortably enjoying their lofty sinecure as framers of our education policy. That will change our fossilised institutions and allow bright talent to shine. That will change the managers who run our industries by making them more creative and less servile to the past. That will change India.

Hii friends, we all know that India have huge talented hard working and youth man power as compared to other countries but I think that these Indian youths don't get proper opportunities and moral support to prove themself and to improve there skills so they prefer to migrate to foreign countries where they get recognition and best opportunities to flourish themself and to increase there skills.

Besides these foreign countries provide proper platform to talented youths to showcase there skills and they value those skills and not only that they constantly motivate there citizens and help them in all possible ways.

So I think we all Indian citizens should get united and we should be made aware about the importance to be skilled and should support each other to develop our skills.

Indian government should provide best possible competitions and opportunities to skilled manpower and should concentrate more on practical approaches then theoretical one.

Hi friends.

Yes I too think that there is a shortage of skilled manpower in India. I agree with this. The way of teaching here is only based on theoretical, without doing practically we can't understand anything. For e.g a person who got 1st rank in undergraduate and after some days if you ask him/her anything generally related to their studies, they can't able to explain it, they might forget those thing (due to lack of experimental studies).

Institutions also having the goal to get good rank, so they concentrate in theoretical studies and also they will boost up their mark, etc. Apart from this peoples are there, who is very talented, high skilled person they are like to go to spread their skills in luxurious country. We can't blame them, because when any innovative idea or anything given by person, we won't accept it, will see the cost or possibilities, etc. So they prefer to move into acceptable country.

The main thing is our Indians are having good grasping power and too we are good hard workers. So this is the reason we are grantly invited by developed countries. And so we are influenced by their facilities and leapt into their country.

My point of view, according India lot of knowledge having Indian people but they do not chance to express talent fully so they are shifting toward abroad they analysed knowledge what we do and then he moving to higher level so only most of them shifting to abroad that is problem actually most talent people fly to abroad so they lack of skilled mindset will formed. So for this issue govt should put certain restriction certain year Indians people work here then only problem can solve.

One important thing to be added education is one of major problem I think so if we consider US, UK education in the sense unique but Indian it vary many different kind that way we are lacking I think.

Yes, I agree with the statement that there is a shortage of skilled manpower. Our country is the one of the youngest country in the world, but we lack in providing opportunities to them, still there are lot of children who even don't see the school.

Our education system is also not up to date or in the present trend of technology with the world, we have to improve it at any cost, because if it would not done today then there will be never tomorrow.

Why don't we introduce an necessary session or a discipline in every graduation course or even in the school syllabus, if the practical education is given at the school days then the child is free to select the stream of his education, this would also help in marginally increase in the technical or mechanical brigade even after the Sr. Sec. Education. This could be done by providing a whole and hectic investment in the school education, there would be less bookworms.

The technical sessions should be held by the various organisations to enhance the new and innovative ideas in the development of the nation. There should be a compulsory project is given to the students to work on with, every year. These efforts would not only increase quality but it would also produce the youngest brigade of engineers, doctors, philosophers, researchers, policymakers etc.

India is having the best talent in the world as we know indians has established milestones in abroad. But the Q. Is why not in India? The one possible answer could be lack of opportunities, second could be less money or third could be lack of appreciation and so on. But if know the answer then why we are not providing these things to the Indian talent. So another thing comes out planning system or poor.

So we will have to work out on these factor and then we will be able to conclude that INDIA is having the best and skilled manpower for India.

Hi Friends, here I am sharing my views regarding "SHORTAGE OF SKILLED MANPOWER IN INDIA".

I agree that India is in short of skilled manpower but not manpower. There may be many reasons for this our educational system, government policies, lack of technical and financial support and last but not the least we ourselves.

Our Educational system is completely theoretical and outdated i.e., of no practical knowledge. All of us know the well-known saying that "Today's Child is Tomorrow's Citizen", but Today's child has no creative mind to become an architect of his life. So how would he be a responsible citizen tomorrow?It is not the child's mistake alone but ours' impractical systematic studies in our country. What is the use of gaining many degrees without any practical knowledge or any research?

So without the basic and fundamental step how could we expect for brightening future. No innovative projects are being undertaken by universities to boost up the skill of students. As a student if one gets involved in technical and non-technical workshops, interactive programs and ongoing projects, it would be a wonderful practical gain. If everyone of us utilize our time in a full-fledged way to learn something that really improves our skills, we become productive manpower.

Apart from it, government should provide support to it's citizens in every possible way to make every Indian productive.

Well said my friend.

In my opinion Indian's are very talented than foreigners. Indian's are more talented so they are thinking that " for my talent this salary is not enough" so they are migrating to Abroad for good salary. In India we don't have right opportunities to prove it technologically and financially. We don't perfect Education system, My personal experience that I came from a village where we don't find in schools, subject teachers and correct timings. In our school only 5 teachers are there, they will teach all subjects from 6 to 10th class. This shows our education system.

Indian's are settled in All countries that shows their talent, because of this reason only they are killing Indians. If we Increase Opportunities and provide the financial support, in our country also we find no.of Bill Gates.

If we assume skilled manpower as a product then the product made in India is being exported to other countries at free of cost. So that other countries are having profits. So there is a deficit in our country. The reason is that the skilled one want to have better opportunity. By providing good opportunities here in our country, it can be solved. We can not blame our education system but some changes have to be made. It should focus on practical issues rather than concentrating theoretical aspects.

In INDIA child yet reading RAMAYANA in education and a Japanese children learning about how to reach on the MOON. We don't make things outdated, we use them continuous, so we can't make a level in anything. There is no PRACTICAL way to handle all problems in one method. First of all we should wash out our backwardness and think about the future consciously.

I feel that the reasons behind the SHORTAGE OF SKILLED MANPOWER in India are poor government policies. In INDIA our leaders make their policies according to past. There is no future planning. We feel happy to say we serve MNC in INDIA and abroad. But no one think about the requirement of skilled manpower according to our population. We doesn't have anything in surplus. The other nations state population lives in one medium city of INDIA. They have all facilities on per thousand then we have on per lakh. Our leaders who makes the development policies are far away from GRASS ROOT. There is no matter if we feel happy about some counted groups like AMBANI, TATA either we feel pleasure to say Originally INDIAN based for the man serve in abroad.

Overall I want to say there should be a practical development program from grass root to high level technical, scientific and research education. So that we can make a huge team of SKILLED MANPOWER.

Perfect topic to discuss on.

Poor education system of India leads lack of knowledge and intelligence in students. From 1st std students of our country learns history of India and kings happened in India but there is not a single extra subject that improved knowledge and creativity of those kids. If we look for students doing their higher studies like engineering, they are also made to study those subjects in which they are not interested e.g. students of computer engineering are also made to study subjects of electrical field.

Our education system is always decided by the people who never try to communicate and never want reviews from young generation about education. If reviews of young generation regarding education are taken then there will be better skilled Manpower in India.

I Feel that the reasons behind the SHORTAGE OF SKILLED MANPOWER in India are.

1. Poor Education System.

2. No Technological &Financial Support.

And finally these things leads to.

3. Brain Drain.

We don't forget great persons of India Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam or Ambani brothers but remember they had their opportunities and some financial and technical supports from other well developed nations. Also remember that behind the number one Businessman in the World, Bill Gates there are THOUSANDS OF INDIAN HANDS.

We compare and Compete with the different educations systems between states but fail to compare with that of other countries. Countries like Japan, UK. Provide Practical Education whereas we people are still BOOKWORMS.

The root cause for this shortage is the poor educational scheme and lack of opportunities and solution to this problem is in the hands of Government of India.

In last 5 years increasing the colleges and university's. But student have not taking the proper education. So every college and the university's taking care of student to provide proper and quality education.

We have to give more respect to the creativity rather than the marks obtained in the schools, college, university. That is gonna be the good solution to the lack of performance. We have to make more opportunities to the creative pupils and peoples. Finally I suggest that the mark based system should be abolished thoroughly from our country.

Because Indians have talent and able to work more than 8 hours sitting continuously on seat. But we are not utilizing power of our skilled workers in right direction.

Hi Friends,

Here I am sharing my point of view about skilled manpower shortage in India.

In The India there are so many genius, scholars and high skilled unemployed youngsters. But they did not get proper opportunity for showing their skills, there are less number of industries and working areas for technical skilled persons, less numbers of schools and colleges.

On other hand, if there are some areas so people did not get jobs. Because in These days the priority becomes getting good mark instead of knowledge in every class every study.

Cause:-our education system is so lengthy and unpractical, uninteresting. There are so many unnecessary things that have no need in general life.

Sol: Education system should be changed and concentrated. There should be Streamwise classified education after basic study of a child.

- Government should develop area and industries according to our education system. Ex-sometime a person have best athletic skills, he can perform good in national, international games, events but he did not get opportunity because he is from a rural area, or there is no searching from government.

- Education should be free on each level for every level.

- We also have to come forward for removing threats from education system.

- We have to use our best effort to introduce education as a system instead of business.

India is not poor in Manpower but it lacks skilled manpower for the following reasons.

Indian educational system is just a replica which had been developed by the British before independence and there are no prore updations made from time to time and is therefore becoming a very important issue, ie. The quality of education.

The Government of the country promote new educational institutions to flourish like the mushroom in the infertile soil and each one fail to nourish its fruits properly, and a very few among them at least try to survive among them and those brains nourished from these institutions are flying outside the nation in no time and the rest, the unskilled and the unqualified are being left back in the great nation of incredible manpower.

The other major issue cropping up the scenario is that the present generation acquire these degrees and education only for the sake of earning handful of money and to earn a better status in the society. The condition can be changed only if this concept of the new generation is changed and a PASSION is created to acquire Knowledge.

So before blaming others, its our turn to look forward to the opportunities awaiting us and to create a passion to get knowledge, not mere knowledge, but to become a skilled craftsman.

Hi a very good morning to all the readers.

India is very rich in resources. For eg the majority of the electricity is produced by means of coal. One of the major constraints faced by our nation is the lack of sufficient labour force or skilled labour force. As We all know that japan is one of the super economies in the world. The qualities of goods produced in Japan is supreme in quality. As a result of this the customers all around the world has trust on the goods produced by Japan.

But India is not fame as much of japan as compared that of the quality of goods produced in japan. The major problem of this is that the lack of skilled manpower and the continuous change of workers from one job to other. The students of our country should provided with training programs as concerned with their area of interest in a regular manner. Hence they can improve their skills and at the time they reach their respective area of job they can excel.

But knowledge without action is waste, there is high unemployment in India. The high unemployment in India is always affecting the economy too. Most of our companies are recruiting personnel from abroad n we are always wanting to go abroad. The is nothing but a huge threat to the nation which is called BRAIN DRAIN.

Every Indian is having such a skill and it doesn't mean that everyone is having the same skill. People may be skilled in different manner and what we have do is that identify their skills and use them accordingly. I always agree to the point that the our education system is lagging far behind the global education standards.

MNC companies shown their interest on Indian manpower due to they know that the manpower in India are hard workers and intelligent. Why the skilled manpower is less in India is that their is no good of research field in India and the most of the people who want to go for the research field will go to the other countries and they completed their research and settled there.

Hi friends,

Today we are here to discuss about the topic Lack of skilled labour. India is not lack of skilled labour, But there is a lack of opportunities, career development and encouragement. That's why Indians are migrating to other countries. Already we used to hear the Foreigners killed Indians, this is because Indians are more talented then Foreigners.

And mostly (our) Indians attitude should be changed because we will not listen to others. I had my personal experience at my Education I used to express some views My madams refused to hear my words because I'm student. Should leave such attitude motivation plays a major role to develop their skills.

And moreover to some extent it is true Indian teaching is Theory-Based. Teachers should try to eradicate fear phobia from students, this hide the skills of the person. In one of the seminar Yandamuri who is a Famous Psychologist said Indians have talent but fear to express, but Foreigners are dare to express but lack of knowledge.

The blames of this doesn't goes to the education system it goes to the government who are not utilizing their revenues in building better career aspects for our skilled persons.

Sometimes we come to the stage to believe so but we should think on the aspects like lack of opportunities, not getting good platform, good exposure & even good training. Such a kind of things diminish their skills. I think all of you must know that in middle east/gulf countries (not only there but all over the world) all most 50 to 65% employees are Indians. And they are dominating there. Even the companies over there prefer Indian employees. They are giving them high pay-scale and hence they get migrated. This migration might be the reason of lack of skilled people. Let me tell you one thing we can't blame our education system for this. We have produced The Ambani, The Kalam, The C. V.

Proper talents are not at proper positions. A person having high technical skills or who can innovate a lot is given the sales department. So Job satisfaction is the factor that needs to be concentrated upon. Again this is the part of lack of proper planning.

A country where not even the Government is stable, how one can imagine the stability of its development. We are not from country, country is from us as we youths will decide as to how to shape up our country. The only thing that lacks in India is a SOLID INFRASTRUCTURE & PROPER PLANNING.

Every1 wants to have a living standard as he/she knows that he/she deserves it and if they are not getting it over here then obviously they will move to the comfort zone. And why to blame those who went abroad. They are making India Shine over there. And what we are doing here.

Everyone has a hidden talent. Evaluate it and find out where do you stand. No one is unskilled over this earth. The only thing that is needed is our talents need to be known.

I ask you guys/gals, why we are judged on the basis of a 3hr exam in engineering, why not on our annual performance ?

Why for getting a job in company, we have to prepare, why we are not taught in that way that company/job needs ?

I agree that theory is important but practical is also as important as theory but focus is given just on theory. A kid from his childhood is forced to gain good marks and under pressure he/she have to get it by hook or by crook.

Family support is also needed. Most of the families want their children to be on secure side, to e in Government sector and people are taking negative benefits of the relaxation given in Public sector.

If you have required talent, you can survive anywhere on this earth.

There is a lot more to discuss but I would just say that success is not a matter of chance its a matter of choice, so to make India a successful country, organizations have to make policies as to how to make maximum utilization of people while giving them relaxation and good living standard in jobs. It is the only thing that makes other country growing vast and fast than us and that also by using talents of our people.

Why don't we have innovations in our country?

Has any Indian company developed anything huge, has it ever developed even an operating system ?

It will remain a question mark always unless we won't come out of our shells that are covered with society, lack of passion, money mindedness, and lack of opportunities.

According to me INDIA having people who are highly talented but in India there is lack of resources because many of the people or officials playing politics. Real talent of the individual is not getting out. Highly talented people going to other countries for thier individual benefits.

I would definitely not agree with the statement. In fact I feel India is incredible rich
and talented. Its just that most of the talents are not given proper recognition. A US/UK returned guy gets a upper hand when compared to equally talented Indian. India could have been more efficient if we had not focused on reservations and given positions to the candidates based on their abilities.A change in the present education system from a theoretical approach to a practical approach will make more number of students employable...

Hi Friends, According to me India there is no shortage of skilled manpower. There is a problem of just understand it. In India from their childhood studies of students are more theory based not practical. Students are studied to just get good marks instead of understanding a subject what they want to said. One more thing is also in India people are money minded they always want to earn more and more money. So most of the skilled Indians fly abroad because they get much more package their compare to India they forgot the patriotism. According to me if our Education system will become much more practical instaed of Theoritical and Government Provide people package according to their ability than India will Grow High.

I liked all the views which I read first of all I would like to share my thoughts as a Indian citizen and I think it is depends on our mind. If a person became educated and he got so many professional degree and diploma, he always wants to great job with higher package. But I think the people who thinks like that, he should try to understand one thing that they can not reach on the top without grow their first step for whatever they want to reach. So this time is to change thinking...

There is no shortage of skilled manpower in India. The only thing is most of the Indians are lazy and easy going people. The Indians go after % of marks in subjects in getting a job. So it is not good to underestimate the others who don't come up to the criteria specified. They may be more skilled. Most of the IT people are after salary hike. They are not looking at the job satisfaction.

"Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable. ".

"You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. ".

Good G. D. Going on here. I had a glance through all the views written above and I too agree to the fact that India's got skilled manpower, but is not being used to the fullest. And yes in our country we are educated and thought not in a very practical manner, theory is given prior importance. Politics in India is a thrash!

Due to the problems of the country, talented people fly to abroad, to earn more.

Also the teachers, professors don't do a great job. All of the above, Indian politics need to change. India is the second largest populated country and so there are a large number of skilled and talented manpower.

According to me, there is no shortage of skills in India but of manpower. India is second largest populated country and I think also have highest percentage of brilliant brain in the world. But there is lack of awareness and information which let them go waste by going against their field of interest.

Our Education system is theory based from which just a part is used further in our jobs, and remaining we forgot after getting pass in academic exams. So, I want to say that, our Education system should be practical based and sharpen the one's skills and encourage him to move forward in the betterment of our beautiful country.

Skilled labor force is and will be in great demand especially when India who is constantly termed as a growing economy, we can say is on the ebb of an economic boom. The flip-side of this situation would be more employment opportunities and the want of quality manpower to fit these opportunities. Unfortunately as most of India's population is rural based, inadequate infrastructure, training and education and unskilled and lack of quality in the labor force is a result of these inadequacies. Fortunately not only in India but all over the world, this situation has been accounted for and many governmental organization and corporates either individually or in partnership have started infusing education and training opportunities an also internship and employment facilities.

India is going to be the most populated country of the world soon. It lacks in education and opportunities of employment. Lack of trained manpower is also going to increase in future because of the this reason as the people shall be inclined towards the training which bring them job and lack of opportunity shall resisit them to go for better class of training and people shall remain average which is happening in India.

Skilled manpower is shortage in India is absolutely there because small villages and towns are coming up in terms of growth so people getting jobs in their hometowns they don't have to come to Delhi or Mumbai to find a job where they get paid same in their town. Being a managing director for aman overseas a recruitment agency in India for supplying manpower abroad, we faced this problem.

Well looking at the scenario we can say India never lacked the skill labor, it always lacked in giving opportunity to the people, looking at the scenario going any where in the world we always find the Indian are prefer 1st when it comes with thinking practically with comfort. Yeah definitely there is lot of poverty and illiteracy so the number of man power look less.

According to me the topic Skilled manpower shortage in India is absolutely true. But coming to the fact that why the skilled manpower is declining, we can answer the way of government, the attitude of people, selfishness of youth and corruption. We have many of talented but they don't have any facility to do work so properly. They are not satisfied with the way of government then how can they serve for the country. OK they are going out of countries and doing jobs and developing those very well because they are well treated there than here. And one more thing Do we have any right to make the unknown people upset, yes it is true so many of talented are irritated with people around us. Some more persons want more salary that's why they forgot Patriotism and if our government gives as they expected why don't they settle their lives here. Even though an highly talented person tries to get a job, and he succeeds in all tests he is offered with corruption then how does our country lead forward.

Education is not major problem if the person is talented. But the motivation from teachers and parents is most important to a student during his childhood. If we teach the subject, we get the skilled persons else the persons to whom the life looks like a question mark.

Have a nice life.

I never think that our India is having shortage of skilled Manpower. Indians are very skilled persons compared to other nation. But our Indians are money minded persons. Always Indians are thinking about how to earn money, how to earn status in the society. But they won't help to develop our country. Indians are always flying to other countries and earn more money because in foreign counties Indian will be having more package than in India. If we really show interest to develop our country then India will be the fully developed country in the world wide.
