ABOUT ‘SEEKHO AUR KAMAO’ (Learn & Earn):

According to the latest Report of National Sample Survey Organization, self employment in the rural areas in agriculture as well as non agriculture was the main statue for the Religious Groups. In 2004-05, 26% of Muslims and 35% of Christians depended on “self employment in agriculture”, whereas in “self employment in non-agriculture sector”, 28% of Muslims and 15% of Christians were involved. In Rural areas, the Workers Population Ratio among the males of all ages in 2004-05 was the highest among Christians (56%) followed by Hindus (55%) and then Muslims were the lowest (50%). the unemployment rate was higher in Christians (44%) followed by Muslims (23%) and Hindus (15%). Similarly in Urban India the unemployment rate was highest among Christians (86%) followed by Hindus (44%) and Muslims (41%).According to reports of Directorate General of Employment and Training, a majority of Indian workforce does not possess marketable skills which are an impediment in getting decent employment and improving their economic condition in spite of having larger young population, About 63% of the school students drop out at different stages reaching class- X. Only about 3.1 million vocational training seats are available in the country whereas about 12.8 million persons enter the labour market every year. Even out of these training places, very few are available for early school dropouts. This signifies that a large number of school drop outs do not have access to skill development for improving their employability at one side and availability of 12.8 million jobs at the other side. As per Sachar Committee Recommendations, the country is going through a high growth phase. This is a time to help the underprivileged to utilize new opportunity through Skill development and education.

India is in transition to a knowledge based economy and its competitive edge will be determined by the abilities of its people to create, share and use knowledge more effectively.

Harnessing the demographic dividend through appropriate skill development efforts would provide an opportunity to achieve inclusion and productivity

Within the country and also a reduction in the global skill shortages.
