Mar '08
On the basis of information published in World Competitiveness Year Book 2007 by Institute of Management and Development, Lausanne, Switzerland, the labour productivity measured in terms of Gross Domestic Product (Purchasing Power Parity) per Person Employed per Hour in India during 2006 has been worked out to be US$4.16, which is lower than Singapore (US$25.92), Japan (US$ 31.10), China-Mainland (US$6.02) and Republic of Korea (US$19.78).

As per the information furnished by Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs, Indian workers are in great demand in some of the developed as well as developing countries. Every year about 6-7 lakh workers travel to various countries seeking job opportunities.

Countries in the Middle East and South East Asia offer tremendous opportunities for the Indian skilled workers. The major trades in demand include electricians, plumbers, carpenters, drivers, welders, fitters, machine operators coming from China and other countries.

In order to address the issue, during 2006-07 the Central Government in consultation with State Governments launched a new scheme for skill upgradation and pre-departure orientation of the prospective emigrants. The training includes familiarization with the good working practices, safety norms and use of tools.

The trainees are also given exposure on personality needs and how they should conduct themselves while they are working in the overseas establishments. This will help skilled workers in sharpening of their skills in tune with emerging market needs.

This information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Shri Oscar Fernandes in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
