Education Budget 2019 ; Experts comment on national research foundation to major start-up tax benefits : Dr. Bappaditya Mukhopadhyay quoted in a story

Education and health are two other predominantly service sectors that India has a lot to develop, offer and to employ. While there is increased allocation, are they anywhere near sufficient? Our education spending is at 3.1% of GDP, less than half of where it should be because we have the potential to be the employee centre. The emphasis on Robotics and AIML is welcome but given the current skilling, how far can we tap into such potentials? Surely any effort to prepare the young work force for emerging technologies is a welcome move. What remains disappointing is perhaps giving up the idea on Make in India. Very little is on the agenda when one looks at logistics and warehousing- both these are employment generators.
