Both Education and Training are the strategic elements which would pave way for employment-enhancing skills and increasing productivity and would, in the long run, accelerate the future economic growth of the country.The Indian Economy is a knowledge-based economy owing to its copious Human Capital with impeccable qualification, knowledge, capability, Skills, flexibility etc. and these qualities need to be developed further and empower the Human Capital to ensure our country Global Competitiveness. Still, there is a dearth of skilled manpower to address the mounting needs and demands of the Global Job-Market. To find a solution to this problem, the Government and Private Sector should unitedly take efforts to introduce Educational and Training Programmes to mould and garner the Demographic Dividend.Hence, it is imperative to nurture the skills of the younger generation as a Learner First by the respective Governments in our country for knowledge-intensive sectors. The Government should allocate sufficient funds for the development in all the Plans, Policies and Procedures and provide region-wise Training Programme suiting to their Courses, so that the country would face the challenges of demand and supply of the Global Job Market.
