Policy makers must focus on nature of future jobs, says Minister Pradhan 

News Nation , Sep 15, 2018

Policy makers should introspect on the changing nature of job profiles and focus on the nature of future jobs and their availability, Union Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Saturday.

"Those responsible for fashioning public policy need to zero in on the nature of future jobs and where they would be available," Pradhan said while releasing a report 'Future of Jobs in India-2.0 and Employer-led Models of Job Creation-Version:2' at the 11th Global Skills Summit organised by FICCI in Delhi.

"The belief that technology and innovation were squeezing the job space was a myth," he said, explaining that while some jobs were being squeezed, a multi-fold increase was being witnessed in many other sectors due to technological innovation.

Policy makers need to astutely comprehend the changing jobs scenario as digital innovation and advancement is rapidly changing the character of workplace.

The country must channelise its intellectual manpower into creation of gainful employment for the people endowed with the right type of skills, Pradhan added.

Amid the fast changing jobs scenario, India will witness 24 million people reach the age of 21 by 2025 and the challenge will be to absorb them in productively in the workforce, TV Mohan Das Pai, Chairman, FICCI Skill Development Committee, said.
