Implementation of Skill India at odds with political economy
Part of: GS Prelims –Polity and GS-II- Govt Policies
Study by the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) and the Institute for Social and Economic Change (ISEC) has revealed
- The implementation of the Skill India policy has not sufficiently anchored the reality of India’s political economy
- The preponderance of informal service work — even in the organised sector — makes the future of the skilled service worker almost as bleak as that of the unskilled worker.
From Prelims point of view
