Civil aviation sector can create 60 lakh jobs over ten years: Minister

Minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha has said that the civil aviation sectorhas the potential to create about 10 lakh direct jobs in the next ten years. Given a six- fold multiplier effect that jobs in this sector have, this can lead to the creation of about 60 lakh jobs – direct and indirect – in the next ten years, he said.

Sinha also said that the sector can reasonably be expected to grow at an average rate of about 10-12 % over the next ten years. However, to achieve this one first needs to fill the gap between the demand for skilled manpower for a huge variety of trades in the sector, and the availability of the same.

He was speaking at a workshop on Building Awareness on Aligning Skill Development in the Civil Aviation Sector with the National Skill Qualification Framework ( NSQF).
