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).
