Lower dependency ratio, more jobs for one and all
The government believes that on one hand such an effort would increase employment and, on the other hand, will help reduce the dependency ratio and give the nation a competitive edge. The government aims to reduce dependency ratio to 0.59 by 2011, from 0.73 in 2001.
Dependency ratio is a ratio of dependent to working age population. The government has already proposed to set up ITIs with public-private partnership across the country.
It will, through Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), will now focus on reducing primary schools dropouts as well as improving quality of student learning.
