India is experiencing a demographic dividend as more than 50 per cent of the population is in the working age group which can make India the skill capital of the world. However, skilling this youth bulge constitutes a challenge particularly when there is preponderance of informal/unorganised sector. As per the 66th round of NSS survey (2009-10), approximately 92.8 per cent of the total work force in 2009-10 constituted of informal workers. To understand the implications for skill development in the sector, it is necessary to reflect on the sectoral composition of workers both in terms of organised/ unorganised.
