India’s 2 per cent skilled labour force is no match against the more than 75 per cent skilled labour force in developed countries such as Germany and South Korea.

At a time China’s economic growth slows down, India will not be able to take its place without a massive skilled labour force.

 



The government is working hard to implement the National Skilled Qualification Framework by Dec 2016. It would enable movement of people across vocational and general education.

A skilled worker can make as much as Rs.10,000 to Rs.12,000 a month instead of the meagre Rs.2,000 to Rs.3,000 now.

Newly formed skill councils will certify approximately 4.75 lakhs trainees and train over 550 trainers over the next 10 years.

 

Rudy also expressed that he wants to see matrimonial ads seeking master chef or a master plumber as grooms.
