New Delhi: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, who is a part of the Narendra Modi government, has recently talked about conducting a skill census in his state. Chandrababu Naidu criticized the agenda of the India Alliance and said that there is a greater need for a skill census instead of a caste census. If Naidu's plan succeeds, Andhra Pradesh will be the first state in the country to conduct such a census.
With this census, we will be able to highlight the capabilities and shortcomings of our workforce. It is believed that this initiative of Naidu will enable full use of human resources. This initiative of Naidu is being welcomed on social media. Most people are talking about implementing it all over India. Actually, today when caste-based census, religion-based census is being talked about everywhere, this initiative of Naidu can prove to be very revolutionary. According to experts, this initiative of Naidu is so good that it can become an example for the whole country.

There are many degree holders in India, but none of them are fit for a job

India's situation in terms of skills is mixed. More than half of the population in India is under the age of 25. This is a huge potential. However, Indian youth are facing high rates of unemployment and underemployment. Many have degrees but lack the skills required for the available jobs. Before moving ahead, let us understand the unemployment situation in the country through a graphic.

Unemployment is at its peak among graduates

According to the Periodic Labor Force Survey, 2022-23, the unemployment rate among graduate youth is very high. Among these, Andhra Pradesh ranks first with 24 percent. At the same time, in terms of unemployment rate in BIMARU states, Bihar is 16.6 percent, Uttar Pradesh 11 percent, Madhya Pradesh 9.3 percent and Rajasthan 23.1 percent.

Skill training to people as per need

Through Skill Census, we can accurately identify the skills gap in different industries across the country. We can meet this requirement by providing training. Suppose an industry needs people trained in Artificial Intelligence. In such a case, we can meet the requirement of that industry by training more people in AI. Before we proceed further, take a look at this graphic.

Helpful in meeting global skill requirements

Skill census can help us find out which skills are most in demand globally. Any country can make its workforce more competitive by training them. According to Delhi University professor Rajeev Ranjan Giri, this initiative of Naidu should be welcomed across the country. PM Modi should also implement it across the country so that India can get accurate information about its human resources. It will also reveal how skilled this human resource is.

Develop training programs for required skills

Effective training programs can be developed through the skill census. Courses can be designed that can meet the required skills. This is possible only when the skill census can tell how many people are equipped with skills.

Finland is the most efficient country in the world

According to a report of the World Economic Forum's Human Capital Index, Finland, Norway and Switzerland are the countries with the most skilled population in the world, ranking first, second and third respectively. The system of primary schools in these countries is very good. The literacy of the youth is very good and such education or training is given which prepares them for every kind of skill. According to Professor Giri, if India also conducts a skill census and prepares its population according to the needs of the industry, then it can become a country like Switzerland or Norway.

Skill census is more important than caste-religion based census

Delhi University professor Rajiv Ranjan Giri says that the skill census initiative in Andhra Pradesh is a very good plan. This can change the picture of not only Andhra but the whole of India. When we know how skilled our workforce is, we can bargain with other countries of the world for human resources as per our wish. Then this workforce will not remain just a laborer. It will be able to work on its own terms. PM Modi should get a skill census done all over India. This will set a different example from the caste-religion based census in the current politics.

In this scheme, registration is done for three months, six months and one year. A certificate is given after completing the course. This certificate is valid all over the country.
