Pankaj Rai provides us his views on the need for digital literacy and details of the Cyber Learning activities in India.
India needs to produce a large number of skilled manpower at an accelerated pace and must expand capacities in ICT
What according to you could fill the gap between what the industry needs and what the academia is producing and how?
A Recent NASSCOM study indicates that more than 75% graduates being produced by Indian Universities are NOT readily employable. And this mismatch is likely to become more acute because of the rapid structural changes in the economy. Today, there is a huge shortage of middle level technical and supervisory skills in India, which can very well be absorbed by non-technical graduates with some validated training and certification.
There is now a growing need to teach job-specific skills and to bundle the curricula with globally recognized certifications to be able to quickly response to changing market needs.
In order to continue on the path of growth, it is imperative that India continues to produce a large number of skilled manpower at an accelerated pace and must expand capacities in ICT/Digital Literacy at all levels as pre-requisite for jobs of the 21st century.
