53% Graduates Are Not Job Ready: Report

More than half of those who pass out of higher educational institutions in India are not employable, a little above 5% workforce in the country is skilled and engineering graduates have no connection with the industry in which they work.

These and some other startling facts have emerged from a Centre’s think-tank report that has also suggested corrective measures at the fag end of the government’s tenure when it can scarcely afford any time for correction.

In the context of employability of engineers, the report said there is a need for a thorough review of standards of engineering education and its linkages with the industry. “Only 5.4% of the workforce in India has undergone formal skill training as compared to 68% in the UK, 75% in Germany and 96% in South Korea," the report said, quoting extensively from the national skill development policy.
