Conference on Skill Development

The Government of India has estimated that the country would have to re-skill and up-skill over 500 million people by 2022. Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh emphasized this point while addressing the Conference of Chief Secretaries in New Delhi on February 3, 2012 when he said, “We also need to equip a large number of our people with skills so that they can engage productively in the processes of nation building and at the same time earn decent incomes to lead a fulfilling life. By the year 2018, India will need about 26 crore skilled people. This demand cannot be met unless we undertake ambitious programs for development of skills”.


To discuss on these aspects, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Rajasthan in partnership with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Government of India and Rajasthan Skills & Livelihood Development Corporation Ltd (RSLDC) organized Conference on Skill Development on 9 November 2012 Jaipur, Rajasthan. The conference had sessions on:


·         Opportunities & Challenges for Vocational Education and Possible Solutions

·         Landscape in Skills : Best Practices, State Perspective

·         Findings of Skill Gap Study for Rajasthan
