Brief: By 2020, Indian will have 47 million people ready for the job market, provided they are trained properly. If we compare with other countries, this estimate is lesser by around 15 million. It can be seen from two perspectives. India will have those people without jobs or people with opportunities across the globe.
In India, the total enrolment has grown to 16 million in 2011 from 8 million in 2001. Simultaneously, the investment has also gone up and the number of institutions has also gone up. It means that we are getting more educated people in the system. If we give right input, we will get enough people taking up those opportunities across the globe. Now, we have e-Commerce coming in education. The examinations are also moving online. Initially, there were some question marks as some of the online exam systems did not perform well. People were skeptical. But today many prestigious exams are conducted online.
