The country is well endowed with many metallic and non-metallic mineral resources.  India is a leading player in respect of many non fuel minerals including, iron ore, bauxite, dolomite, lime stone and mica.  Mining sector (non-fuel) currently accounts for approx 0.5% of GDP. For accelerated economic growth on sustainable basis, this sector has to grow at a much faster pace to secure a higher percentage in the GDP.
 
Scientific, sustainable and transparent mining practices require well trained manpower.  Skill development not only enhances productivity and safety at work place, but more importantly, it prepares the manpower to adapt to the new state of art technologies. Currently this sector employs around 0.2 Million workforce which is estimated to grow to 0.3 Million in next 10 years.

The working age of human beings starts around the period when he is full grown say 18 years. and He works effectively up to the age when he starts loosing his near eyesite. It is seen in the work force they the contribution to work is best between the age 25 to 45. My suggestion is that the skill training work should be started at the age of around 14 years with their studies hence they get around 6 to 8 years and perform best in peak working period. Aperantis skill trainees can get stipend .
