Base scan on the vocational skill requirement for shop

floor level jobs in Bangalore

Labour market situation

India’s labour force reached 375 million in 2002 and will continue to expand over

next two decades. Some projections suggest that the labour force increase will
amount to

7.0-8.5 million a year. However, to a large extent, the GDP growth of 6.7 per cent

has been achieved in India with the employment growth being around only 1 per

Many large enterprises have been shedding labour while the capacity of agriculture

absorb workers is minimal.

As a result of the above developments there are around 27 million persons without

jobs. In addition, a significant number of people are underemployed. The


rates among youth are higher reaching in certain states as much as 35 per cent
against the

national average of 13 per cent. There is an urgent need to generate around 10.0
million of

new jobs each year.

The need to focus on the skills for

non-organized economy

The largest share of new jobs in India is supposed to come from the unorganized

sector that employs up to 92 per cent of the national workforce and produces 60
per cent of
GDP. This sector has seven times greater labour intensity per unit as compared to

organized economy and is some five times less capital intensive, while the role of

organized sector in job creation is expected to be very modest. Since small and

enterprises are supposed to play a central role in the national employment creation

strategy, they should be assisted in development of skills.

Recent Developments

It is clear that the dominant growing segment of the workforce will be the knowledge
technologist in computers, manufacturing, and education.

Employers do not have much information about the potential employee’s quality; they use
markets to judge quality: a diploma qualification is treated as an indicator of ability. These
concepts, not being identical, fail to establish any hard and fast correlation between training and
employment. As a result there is a gap between the supply of employee skill acquired from the
training and the kind of work demand from the job markets.

As per National Sample Survey on employment and unemployment (1993-94), only 10.1 percent
of male workers and 6.3 percent of female workers possessed specific marketable skills. The
percentages were marginally higher in urban areas.
Only 5 percent of the Indian labour force in the age group 20-24 had vocational training
compared to 96 percent in Korea and varying between 60-80 percent in industrial countries.
This points out to the fact that education system in India is excessively oriented towards general
academic education with little or no vocational orientation.

As per NSSO 56th round and the Annual Survey of Industries, while in the year 2000-01 the
gross value added by the organized sector is 75.24 percent, it employed only 13.85 percent of the
Therefore it clearly shows that there is a gap between the course provided to the students in
comparison to the skill required for the job.

The aim of the Base scan is to identify the gaps in the system to create a new syllabus which
caters to the need of the industry.

The statement of problem –

The gap between the employee pool skilled and market demand.

Research design – explorative design

Exploratory research has been chosen for this purpose as it provides insights into and
comprehension of an issue. Exploratory research helps determine the best research design, data
collection method and selection of subjects. This has been specially chosen due to non
availability of secondary data .

Sampling design –random sampling method

Since we will be talking various firms and getting their specific requirement for the training
programme the best research work design suitable for this purpose will be Random sampling
