How the state-wise employability in India affects the situation?
The state-wise employability in India has created an evident divide in the case. According to the reports of 2011, Delhi along with Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand were able to sustain their employability spot as previous years. While Punjab emerged high with new entrants, West Bengal witnessed a visible fall. Based on the report, it is suggested that the states need to improve their educational standards and quality. Rather than following the prevalent fashion of building new colleges, it is the quality of education that should be upgraded. Several stakeholders within the states have advocated similar thoughts about the quality of education. Collectively, many states in India have come together to request AICTE for rejecting the proposals of some of the emerging colleges. Thanks to the media for playing an equally important role in shutting down such colleges.
The difference- Employability in Metros and other cities:
The employability ratio in metropolitan cities is way higher than that in non-metro cities. Due to better exposure, overall personality development, and superior educational standards, getting a job becomes relatively easy for the applicant. The exposure to computers, programming culture, social friendliness, etc. also helps students in metropolitan cities to be more competitive and career oriented. Not to forget the major criteria and communication likeliness for the English language has also created a striking difference in state-wise employability preferences.
