Views: 1.5K

Jharkhand is among the fastest growing economies in India, characterised by a young demography. 57 per cent of the State’s population belongs to age group of 15-59 year. Around 70 per cent of the population is below 35 years. The growing demand of skilled workforce in various industries is compelling the youth to have relevant skill training during their studies. It is necessary to develop skills of Jharkhand’s youth to make them employable. At the same time, it is necessary for the government to have a dynamic approach that evolves according to the students’ age and qualification.

To utilise and engage the existing unemployed population in the workforce through relevant skill training, the Jharkhand Government has launched various initiatives and schemes. The government is focussing on various aspects as the State is blessed with huge natural resources such as minerals, forests, horticulture, water resources etc. Value addition to these resources in the form of skilled workforce is expected to enable the State to develop fast. Jharkhand can be classified into eight major zones based on raw material deposits and industrialisation:
