    Even though there are 17 Government

    Ministries that offer skill development

    initiatives through school education,

    institutes of higher learning andspecialized vocational training institutes,

    India lacks sufficient skilled workers as its

    existing vocational training system does

    not target the casual or informal

    workforce, which constitutes over 90% of

    The Problem

    Indian Ministry of Labour and Employment, has amandate to train over 100 million people of thegovernments target to skill 500 million people by

    2022 The Ministry of Labour and Employment provides

    vocational training through over 8,000government-aided Industrial Training Institutes(ITIs, government run) and Industrial TrainingCentres (ITCs, self-financed)

    Construction Jobs To take up the training programme for carpentry

    skills, one needs to have formal schooleducation until standard VIII, with Science as oneof the subjects. Likewise, for plumbing and

    masonry courses, one has to have minimumclass VIII education. However, this requirement isnot suited for casual workers who are likely to beeither less educated or school drop-outs. Data onthe education profile of carpenters, plumbers and

    masons is not available but, given the distributionof population in India by education as perprevious figure, a clear inference is that thecurrent vocational training system targets less

    than 50 per cent of the entire working populationin India.

    The Government scheme has a target to train a

    million people over five years in 1200 courses.

    Given that there are only 40 courses on

    construction, the scheme can cater for only 6,000people a year for construction jobs.
