Faridabad,17 December : Create Entrepreneurs to scale up the job creation-said Mr. J.P. Malhotra, President DLF Industries Association in discussion with senior HR Professionals at recent HR Summit.

Quality of Education, Faculty, Infrastructure and equipped Laboratories are some of the basic challenges of Universities so that their products are marketable and students who pass out can become successful employees or employers. The number of colleges has gone up from 240 in 1947 to 48000 today. There are more than 800 Universities including 45 Central Universities. The Student/Teacher ratio is 1:12.5 against normal standard 1:4 calling a need of more teachers. NACC or NAB allow for assessment of teachers and evaluation of Universities.

According to Mr. Malhotra, the need of the hour is to encourage acquisition of Skills for entrepreneurship if we want to gainfully employ professionals. An entrepreneur can provide 8 or 10 jobs even in a micro setup.

Skill, Talent and Attitude are three important traits required of young engineers who are passing out, said Sh. Sunil Kant Munjal, V.P. AIMA and CMD Hero Motocorp at the 13thHR Summit.

Let us not produce engineers. Let us create entrepreneurs and Industry Associations can play a stellar role by engaging youth in this direction and import skill sets which encourage and enable engineers to become entrepreneurs. The Govt. of India/MSME Ministry/State Government should facilitate ease of becoming entrepreneurs by providing good financing options/incubation centres/EDP’s. Only then we can meet the challenge of engineers becoming entrepreneurs and only then question of ease of doing business would crop for new generation and demographic dividend everybody talks.

Mr. J.P. Malhotra presented a copy of his Book “Tips – The Bright Ideas” to Sh. Sunil Kant Munjal.
