Skill can be related to the work performed by the people. If a unit of work is performed by an unskilled person, the actual output would not match the expected output. Thus, skills and competencies play an important role in a person’s life. The projection of the skills and competencies helps him to achieve the employability status. The person has to sustain his employability by the process of continuous enhancement of his skills by way of various trainings and workshops. So, skills are essential for the development of a person and the country’s economy. This paper deals with the study of the current skill gap scenario prevailing in India and various schemes and programmes propelled by the Government of India to bridge the gap. The paper also discusses the National Policy on Skill Development and Entrepreneurship 2015.
