Viewpoint: Here’s how skilling can raise the bar of human capital

By Divya Jain

India stood a low 103rd on the World Economic Forum’s Global Human Capital Index 2017—which ranked 130 countries on how well they are developing human capital. Broad-based formal education is yet not accessible by young people, and university-level education is still limited to a quarter of the people eligible for it. This points out the need for a broadened access to formal, basic and higher education systems, as well as reskilling and upskilling opportunities for the current workforce.
