Private sector to participate in primary education system, MPs
Apr '08
Appreciating the large magnitude of investment needed for the education system in India, permitting private sector investment was the consensual sentiment echoed by young Members of Parliament addressing the session on 'India's Demographics: Challenges & Opportunities' at the CII National Conference and Annual Session 2008 on “Building People : Building India” being held on 29 and 30 April 2008 at New Delhi.

Advocating the need for a collective effort by all constituents of society including government, industry, political parties and media for universal primary education, Mr Sachin Pilot, Member of Parliament (Indian National Congress) called for distinguishing between knowledge, educational degrees and skill sets as the components of employability.

Admitting the existence of disguised unemployment in the agricultural sector, he emphasized the need for expansion of options for gainful employment of youth in the non-farm sectors.

Acknowledging the belief about India's demographic dividend, Mr Suresh Prabhu, Member of Parliament (Shiv Sena) cautioned against the rapidly increasing population which was indeed acting as a constraint since growth in population does not transmute to a growth of the working population.

Identifying skill formation and upgradation as the primary issues of concern, Mr. Mohammad Salim, Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha (CPM) stressed on the need of focus on vocational education to enhance vertical mobility in theeconomic system.
