65% of IT employees not retrainable Said Capgemini India chief

According to Capgemini India chief Srinivas Kandula, 65% of IT employees not retrainable. He said, I am not very pessimistic, but it is a challenging task and I tend to believe that 60-65 per cent of them are just not trainable. A large number of them cannot be trained. Probably, India will witness the largest unemployment in the middle level to senior level.

He also said, much of the 3.9 million IT employees come from low-grade engineering colleges which do not follow rigorous grading patterns for students in their zeal to maintain good records.

He also said, For some unknown reasons, we call it a knowledge- driven industry. If you have that kind of talent, and then making them learn the existing technology itself is such a huge challenge. The quality of the students who are coming in is so bad that many of them are not able to answer, when asked about the subjects taught to them when they were in the final semester of their engineering degrees.
