Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Whom to Train ? How to Train ?

A report in Economic Times ( 24 Feb ) talks of the exercise undertaken by NITI Aayog to ,

*  Map the skill requirements of 22 industry sectors ( " Make in India" listing )

The exercise is expected to be completed in 6 months , after which , NITI Aayog will prepare a sector wise road
 map with targets to be achieved across sectors in the given time

The road map will lay down a process for training ( skilling / re-skilling ) some 402 million youth by 2022

The report adds that the Skills Ministry ( headed by Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy ) has outlined :

*  1500 job roles ( like trade classifications / vocational designations ? )

*  6,700 qualifications ( job descriptions  ?  )

I suppose much of those trainings will be imparted in following Industrial Training Institutes ( ITIs )  :

*  13,105   ( existing as on 2014 )

*    1,150   ( set up by Skills Ministry in 2015 )

*    7,000   ( targeted to be set up in 2016  )


In India , we have :

*   4300   Degree level Engineering Colleges

*     700   Diploma level Engineering Colleges

All of these colleges have WORKSHOPS equipped with different types of machines needed for " Skills Training "

These ASSETS are used / occupied only for a maximum of 8 hours ( daytime ) and remain idle for 16 hours

Through a partnership with these colleges , NITI Aayog should consider using these UNDER-UTILIZED assets for
 imparting skills to those who need

Such an arrangement will :

*  Enable NITI Aayog to accelerate this program , without a long mobilization time

*  Save thousands of crores of rupees in constructing new buildings / buying new machines

*  Boost " Make in India " initiative by making available skilled manpower at short notice

*  Increase ASSET UTILIZATION of scarce resources

*  Foster INDUSTRY - EDUCATION INSTITUTES cooperation through closer interaction

*  Enable College Faculty involved to earn extra income through charging PLACEMENT FEES to industry

What  about  Schools  ?

*  We have 1.3 million schools in India . But these schools do NOT have workshops / machinery

*  Between them , these Schools have millions of class rooms which too remain unutilized for 16 hours per day


*   Ask Sundar Pichai ( Google ) to convert all of these Schools into Wi-Fi Hot Spots ( of course , free of cost ! )

*   And Tim Cook ( Apple ) to provide iPAD-Pro tablets ( no doubt , free ! )

*   And Satya Nadela ( Microsoft ) to provide software support ( ex-gratis  ! )

Then use these 1.3 million schools to provide basic COMPUTER SKILLS to future DATA ENTRY OPERATORS

Where there is a WILL , there is a WAY ( even a Super Highway , if there is a Political Will )
