The Indian government is pushing for more locally-available jobs in the manufacturing sector by ensuring that its contribution to the overall GDP increases, said Surendra Nath Tripathi, additional secretary and development commissioner of the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.

While speaking at the '4th National Conference on Skill Development 2015: Linking Skills to Jobs', organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Tripathi said, “The government is going all out to ensure that the manufacturing sector pushes up its contribution towards the GDP from 16 per cent to 25 per cent in the country with the objective of creating more jobs.”

He informed that all the 654 districts in the country have been mapped for information on manufacturing, industries and skill profile for ease in setting up of manufacturing industries and for fulfilling the requirements related to skills. Twenty two ministries and many states are training people on skills. Required skills can be obtained from many places.

The government will be happy if the manufacturing industry is able to generate jobs and pay decent wages to its employees, Tripathi said.

On a similar note, Brij Kumar Agarwal, Joint Secretary (UPA), A&C, Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation commented during the conference that fast changes are taking place in the skilling industry. For the government now, skilling has become an involved process.

Besides, the government is also urging the training institutes to lend loans to trainees who want to become entrepreneurs, he added. (MCJ)
