Short Essay on the Problem of Unemployment In India

Problem of Unemployment In India

Our country is said to be progressing by leaps and bounds in the matter of economy. But this progress is so lopsided that the net result has been the sharp increase in the number of the unemployed people.

Our universities are producing so many graduates all of whom the industry and other institutions cannot absorb. Many young people who can afford are trying to find jobs overseas. That also results in brain drain on a colossal scale. There should be some planning in the matter of producing skilled and highly qualified graduates and post-graduates in various disciplines.

It should be correlated to the necessity or possibility of job creation. It is now almost certain that agriculture in our country is not able to absorb many more workers, skilled or others. The main remedy lies in rapid industrialization. It is heartening to note that many new courses are being started by our universities and other institutions like IITs, ITIs, etc.

Another positive factor is the large number of scientifically skilled people in our country who have the capacity and capability to absorb and grasp all the new research that is being made in various fields in the world. However, the unemployed people want concrete results and not mere policies.

The policy of reservation is also responsible to a great extent m the matter of unemployment. Similarly, corruption and nepotism have also accentuated the problem. Let the government and all others concerned with this topic do their best to overcome this problem.
