Skill Development Top Priority in 12th Plan

Education and skill development would be the “overriding priority” of the 12th Five Year Plan even as India’s current slow economic growth rate might affect total outlay of the plan.
Allocation for the 12th Plan period (2012-17) would be declared in a month and the total size of the plan outlay would be “commensurate with the growth rate”, Planning Commission member Narendra Jadhav told reporters. Jadhav, however, said education and skill development followed by healthcare and infrastructure will remain the top priorities in the plan period as prior to the 11th Plan, the central government did little for the sectors, resulting in a “large backlog”.
