Skill Training Program
In India, skill development has been regarded as one of the most important factors in job generation. India enjoys a special demographic advantage because more than 60% of the population is under 25 years old. However, employability needs to be raised in order to benefit from such a sizable workforce. According to recent data, just 10% of recent graduates are employable, and the other 90% do not possess the necessary abilities to qualify for employment by a firm. The GDP of India is increasing at a healthy rate of about 6-8%, but employment growth is not keeping up.
India is a younger country, compared to its neighbours. Around 28 million young people join India’s labour force each year. According to research done by the National Sample Survey Office, in 2018 India’s jobless rate reached a 45-year high of 6.1%. The nation’s economic environment has also been radically upended by the outbreak.
The need for skill development with an eye toward work is urgent, and it can have various benefits. –
Youth productivity will grow

A rise in young people’s performance level
