      For skill development government should take the role Biggest Human Resource Manager in the country. Use those psychological & intelligence test experts that you use in army selection personnel recruitment. Make your work work easy by using more of these experts for sole purpose of human resource planning and analysis of candidates for skill development.

    Please sort out the people who are interested to move with which program whether Make in india, Skill development if either of this then which sector the government is focussing whether defence equipment, petroleum, or which one. Ask them to choose that. Before all this government should analyze suitability, natural abilities of candidate without much strain with Scientific Face reading(Fa ling lines,all face features,etc). In this way persons qualifications and personality can be planned best.

    3) If small manufacturer is harassed like this, where new job seekers will go, after getting training for skill development?
    4) And after all these things, Make in India, will be limited to only for big business houses, who do now want any competition from Small Entrepreneurs.

    2) Now they are saying that all LED lights must be BIS certified, I also agree on this, but there is total confusion, as no one knows what are actual parameters, very few testing facilities, and testing fee for each item (LED Bulb, Tube Light, Down Light, Street Light) is more than Rs.50,000/-, that is, if he try to get BIS for only one item in 4 different current rationg, he has to pay more than Rs.200,000/- ,therefore, if small manufacturer pay only for testing charges, how will he run his bus

    For education system I think that school should be the place where every child wanna go. And college should be place where each youth wanna go. It should become exiting. The study system need so much update. In the modern digital world why we are using pen and copies if we have tabs and laptops. We should use all the modern gadgets, We need practical theories including books. Not just books. And study should not cost much, each child of India deserve school. We have to make government schools.

    I am a student still. never went to college still I am able to do some programming. What I believe that if any kind of Institute can be provided by government to us in which we can learn only programming then it will be nice step in IT development. What I am actually saying is that programming is an easy thing can be learn even from 6th grades students. Why Indian schools don’t teach programming in syllabus. I think to complete the dream of digital India we need programming basics.

It can stage programs from very small scale to high level skill development to setup companies/home based business setups/research for innovative products which can increase eport/etc. Morning to evening all programs are targetted towards students/rich/poor/enterprenur aspirants etc
