Foundation for employability skills can be laid early at the elementary schooling stage- Ashish Rajpal quoted by the HT
Employees from India’s financial capital Mumbai (89%) and Kolkata (86%) and Hyderabad (84%) feel they lack practical work experience because of inadequate industry-academia linkages. Seventy nine per cent say colleges and universities do not have counselling services on place.

A Harvard graduate in education, he feels development of skills to solve real-life problems, communicate and collaborate with others are critical to succeed in 21st century workplaces.
