Skill requirement studies estimate that India will require around 26 crore skilled people by 2018 and around 34 crore by 2022. There is a need to provide quality training to around eight crore people in the next five years. There is a significant gap between the requirement and the supply which unless checked will constrain our economic growth. We have the serious challenge of providing quality education and skills to about 85 per cent of the people aged between 15 and 59 years, who acquire less than 12 years of education.
