Dr. Sanjay S. Kaptan .


The concept of skill development has gained great importance due to growing population of young and employable youths of India. Mere offering education for the sake of award of degree to youths may not carry due importance. It is equally necessary that the educational inputs should be transferred into meaningful employable skills. Capacity building of youths through skill development has become a major challenge for our planners. The whole idea of demographic dividend cannot be achieved unless and until proper and systematic efforts are made for skill development of youths. Youths can contribute significantly to economic and industrial advancement only if they are capable, competent and qualified.

This paper deals with various issues related with skill development and capacity building.
