Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday called for a massive effort to enhance skill development in the Indian maritime sector. According to the minister, a large number of employment opportunities are expected to be generated from the shipping and allied sectors in the coming years. Gadkari was speaking at the 129th meeting of the National Shipping Board (NSB) which was held here. Addressing the meet, the minister informed about the need to expedite necessary reforms needed for the institutions to impart training in a wide range of disciplines in the Indian maritime sector. "The prestigious Sagarmala Programme itself is expected to throw up about one crore jobs," Gadkari pointed out. "Twelve major ports are being modernised and mechanised, three new ports are coming up soon, 111 inland waterways are being developed across the country and coastal shipping is also poised for major growth. All this will open up many employment avenues, so we need to train our youth so that they can take advantage of the job opportunities."
The need for telecom skill development in india
Posted on Thursday 04 2016
Telecom sector has been among the biggest employers in India and it continues to enroll more people. The sector has created quarter million jobs in the last few years alone. And telecom, growing at 15% a year, will need almost four million skilled workforce by 2022. While there are plenty of new jobs in the sector, the challenge remains in getting skilled manpower with an ability to constantly learn new architectures and technologies be it 3G, 4G or in future 5G and even Wi-Fi roll out, that is hugely underpenetrated in India. With tele density in large urban cities crossing 100% it might appear that whatever growth has to happen has happened. But telecom is such an evolving space that demands on new technologies, handsets, networks, capabilities and skills continues to far outstrip supply. And though urban areas might be well penetrated, as far as telecom services are concerned, rural penetration at around 50% leaves plenty of headroom for growth. While urban areas move to newer technologies, rural areas have twin opportunities to catch up and leapfrog almost simultaneously. Existing mobile services users need to catch up with their urban dwellers in terms of data consumption while the smartphone have-nots need to be brought into the user base, so they can also benefit economically and socially.
