Nigam, S. B. L.
This report on India is one of a series of country case studies for a research project designed to identify training and education policies pursued by governments and manufacturing firms that have contributed to innovation, technological adaptation and skill development, and other structural changes in economy and work organization. Part 1 provides general information regarding India's economic situation and its training policies and programs in the three decades since independence in 1947. It looks at economic and social growth; human resources; educational levels of manpower; industrial development; government policies regarding training, technology, and computers; technical education and vocational training; and adequacy of vocational training. Other issues are industry and institutional feedback, financing of training, and training problems. Part 2 provides details of six case studies of manufacturing firms in India. It is based on data furnished by the firms in a questionnaire or obtained through personal discussions. Each study is divided into these areas: profile, technical changes/innovations, manpower profile and policies, training policies and practices, and skill diffusion. The questionnaire is appended.
