Skills status in Tamilnadu/Krishnagiri

The National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) commissioned a District Level Skill Gap Assessment for the state of Tamil Nadu. The study focuses on identifying the district-wise skill gap across industries and skill levels for the period 2012-2022. Tamil Nadu is one of the leading states in terms of demographic dividend, with approximately 66% of the population lying in the working age group.

Summary of Skill Gap in Tamil Nadu

The highest skill gaps are likely to arise in the most rapidly industrializing districts of Kancheepuram, Chennai and Thiruvallur. The largest skill gap is expected to arise at the semi skilled level. There is an excess availability of unskilled human resources in 2012-17. Enrolment trends and primary research suggest that unskilled human resources are more likely to become skilled rather than semi skilled. This will cause the skill gap at the semi skilled level to persist.
