India to have 1 Million skilled workers by 2014
Bangalore: The government plans to have one million skilled workers in the next five years. Around 5,000 skill development centres and 11 advanced training institutes for trainers will be set up around the country.

"The skill development centres will be set up mostly in unserviced areas like hilly terrain and backward regions," Minister of State for Labour and Employment Harish Rawat said.The move will enable large number of unskilled workforce in these areas acquire skills and get employment in developed regions in the country, Rawat said during the Global Skill Summit organized in New Delhi by FICCI.

The government's skill development policy envisages training one million workers in the next five years and one million people every year thereafter. Remarking on the shortage of experts to train the workforce, Rawat said that his ministry has also undertaken an initiative to 'establish 11 advanced training institutes under PPP mode'.

Speaking on the occasion, Member of Planning Commission, Narendra Jadhav rued that only two percent people receive vocational training in the country.He said that five sub-committees set up under the National Skill Development Coordination Board to recommend issues on vocational education have already prepared their reports, which would be submitted soon.

"While two sub-committees have already presented their reports, the remaining will submit theirs in the next few days," he said. "The Planning Commission will make a comprehensive presentation to the Prime Minister in the near future." Two reports on skill development - one prepared by McKinsey and the other by Michigan Ross School of Business in association with FICCI were released at the summit.

The government earlier had announced setting up of 1,500 new ITIs to create a pool of skilled hands for the industry.

3: India should be able to export skilled manpower and there is unlimited demand for health care workers and medical technicians.Along with skill what is essential is language skill which our tradesmen do not have. They should be simultaneously tried and trained.
