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.

For skill training modification to formal education stricture is necessary. Formal education which enables a person become good citizen should be completed by the age of 14 years. After this age practical skill development with monitory incentive and studies should go hand in hand. Organisations can help in skill development at initial age level and absorbe skilled work force. Now the training time will be low after engaging and effective work contribution will be more.
