Tourism Industry to Generate Almost 6.5 mn Jobs By 2022


11 April 2015

Mumbai: Employment opportunities in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry in India will nearly double by the year 2022. These three segments together employed 6.96 million people in 2013, and are expected to provide employment to 13.44 million people over the next decade, according to the Human Resource and Skill Requirement Report by the Indian government. The report containing incremental human resource requirement across 24 sectors in the country was released by Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister of State with Independent Charge for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India, in Delhi.

According to the findings of the report, the incremental human resource requirement across these 24 sectors is nearly 109.73 million whereby the top ten sectors account for about 80 per cent of requirements. As per the report, building, construction and real estate sector will be the biggest employment generators in the coming decade accounting for an additional job opportunity of 31.13 million.

Speaking on the occasion, Rudy said that as the old adage goes, what cannot be measured, cannot be corrected. The idea behind the Skill Gap Studies is to understand which sectors are likely to face the biggest gaps. It is imperative for the government to plan the ‘skilling’ of future workforce of India on the basis of these reports, he said.
