As per my view , the degree itself, increasing unemployment problem.
Mostly, it seems that,obtaining a degree also promotes mindset of a person to have a certain employment connected to one\\\'s degree and if do not get the same , one get disappointed and leads to unemployment.

But , in-spite of that , if one thinks of creating any employment of his own , thinking that, degree has increased his intellectual status and has to do something for increasing his economic status , it would definitely solve this issue.

Infrastrutural building
by Sameer Shaikh on Apr 09, 2015 07:47 PM  | Hide replies

Why Infrastructural building is important for growth in India and creation of jobs. India has few metro or semi metro cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Ahmadabad, Delhi, Gurgaon. Even the tall buildings and infrastructure was built by private builders for these MNC companies.

The government contribution was only in taking bribes and passing licenses .. same red tapism for these builders who rented these buildings to these global MNC companies.

If you see village where 60-65% indian people lives, neither private companies invested there, neither government built roads and proper connectivity in the interior parts of india. If there was more decentralized system, there would be more mumbai and bangalore in all states in India.

Migration happens because people from small town from all over india from IT or organized sector goes to Mumbai, Pune or Bangalore and then you have more supply of labour than demand and India looses the battle for their youngsters here.

India has wasted decades in state planning because Indias incompetent bureaucracy did not supported initiation of those planned policies at top level.

India has missed the bus and concentrated too much on IT sector making It sector too much conjugated for example in a state like hyderabad where every second person is IT professional without realizing the potential that only manufacturing can employ large pool of resources.

Indian entrepreneurs have focused too much on IT support than IT innovation and the result is we are only supporting first world countries processes with human resource available at cheap rate without realizing IT could have leveraged in manufacturing to produce better output.

Unless India realizes that its strength lies in manufacturing and it should not rely heavily on service sector, India will lag behind in growth.

If you see the employment generation record in India each year, it is very shocking. 10 million youths enter the job market every year, but only a million jobs are created in the organized sector of the economy annually. Around 15-20 million have to in unorganized sector, many give up their career due to lack of support from government and sometimes providing costly higher education becomes a burden on the family , others join their family business or continue their forefathers profession, some opt for further studies, few take vocational or technical training to upgrade their skills such as a short term course in Java, SQL or software testing to make them job ready, since the traditional education in India is not aligned properly with the job market requirement and there is a wide gap between the skill sets of the candidates and the market requirement. The unemployment situation is quite alarming

Why there is so much unemployment here? India has wasted decades in state planning. A much more decentralized system would have ensure many more places like Bangalore and Mumbai all across the state in India. India's reliance on service sector as main thrust of income generation.India has focused on IT and knowledge-based services. Job creation is much slower in India and will continue to remain so until India’s infrastructure is brought up to date to attract the many manufacturers who will come to use India’s low cost workers and efficient services.

our comparison is with China. Where did China did so well and India lagged behind? Manufacturing. That is where the foundation of a large economy lies. That is where it makes sense to distinguish between a small state like Switzerland, Singapore and Hong Kong and a large ones such as India or China. A small economy of only a few million people can get by with only a services sector. But a large country with a billion people needs to have a correspondingly large manufacturing sector. When I say large, I do not mean that it should employ a large percentage of the people. I mean that the value of the production of the sector should be large. Why? Because manufacturing produces goods and it is the availability of goods that make people non-poor Today the current government is talking about Make in India campaign which will create millions of jobs for the youth. But India cannot grow into a major economy on services alone . Since the industrial revolution, no country has become a major economy without becoming an industrial power. IT is less than 3% of India’s GDP. While services have grown rapidly, the bulk of the growth is from service sectors. Business services, which include software and IT-enabled services, account for only 0.3% of GDP. Only manufacturing can mop up India’s vast pool of unemployed, narrow the urban-rural divide and reduce poverty.

The other worrying area for India is Research and Development and infrastructure. Currently Mr. Narendra Modi is talking about Make in India initiative and by declaring that India will be a global manufacturing hub, we are putting ourselves as direct competitor for China. India has excellent resources and provide IT solutions and support to global companies across the world, but do we have system in place for IT innovation and new inventions and even in IT Chinese have developed their own version of google called baidu to which Modi said in one conference that India was unable to develop its own version of google when asked about India's contribution to IT service. Without R&D, how will we compete with China in global manufacturing because unless you innovate and customize your product according to market demand and changing times, we will not be able to match with chinese standard since Indian government spends very little on R&D compared to China which has set 163 billion dollar (98 thousand crore) budget in Research and Development in 2015-16 compared to Indias budget in R&D which is set at a paltry 150 crore for 2015-16. R&D can also play pivotal role in patent rights, policy making, knowledge hubs.

Other than that, Industrialization cannot take off without adequate infrastructure: better roads, and a reliable supply of power and clean water, better ports and airports. By one estimate, economic losses from congestion and poor roads alone are as high as US$4 to 6 billion a year in India. Another estimate is that the cost of most infrastructure services in India is about 50% to 100% higher than in China. The average cost of electricity for manufacturing in India is about double that in China; railway transport costs in India are three times those in China. China has spent over eight times as much as India on its infrastructure. Three years ago, China’s total capital spending on electricity, construction, transportation, telecommunications and real estate.

The point on essaying this is to convey that there will be a paradigm shift in employment and training from purely IT service to vocational training, technical training in fields such as manufacturing. Indian government and private sectors will have a major role to play in filling the gap in labour supply and demand.

Excellent article
by Raj rajan on Apr 09, 2015 07:15 PM

Skill is very important in any sector. There should be many institutes where they should teach some skill or another. Students during holiday waste their time watching the idiot box and playing videos games. There should be more of training institutes where practical exposure is needed. Government should start this initiative so that it will be useful for everyone to learn a new skill.

Terrible scenario
by monojit b on Apr 09, 2015 05:53 PM

To Make in India, power is a prerequisite. Indians sweating it out due to power cuts know about power crisis. Strong steps should be taken to hasten building of hydro power projects, tidal projects, solar and wind power projects. But in India blind fanatics succeed in hampering beneficial mega hydroelectric power projects like Subansiri Lower Project of NHPC without any care for valid scientific, socio-economic or ecological reasons. Such projects, if completed, could make the power starved North-East India energy surplus.
