Post Graduation for porters
The dip in the value of education continues at a frantic pace. Not long ago engineering degrees were sufficient for a good job, things have changed as many would know for the worse. The dip has continued and even post graduate degrees are not able to fetch the appropriate job for the qualification. Five M.Phil degree holders, 253 Postgraduates, and 984 graduates will be giving a written exam along with Class V dropouts in basic maths, language, and aptitude for five porters’ (hamals’) jobs.
When candidate qualification is way more than what is required
The state-level written exam for over 2,500 people applied for grade D post will be conducted by the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC). MPSC secretary Rajendra Mangrulkar told Times of India that the exam is being conducted as it is not possible to take interviews of so many candidates. The selection will be based on merit. In spite of the minimum qualification of the exam being Class IV pass, such overqualified people are giving it a shot. Among the candidates, only 177 have an education less than SSC.
The above scenario is reflective of the employment scenario in India, where there are more qualified candidates completing education but not enough jobs to absorb them. As per the Labour Bureau, no new jobs were created but there was actually a decline of 20,000 jobs across eight labour intensive sectors in the December quarter of 2015.To see postgraduates do the jobs which have very less of minimum qualification is a painful sight to watch.
The Logical Indian appeals to the government at the center and the states to give high priority to education and job creation. People have to spend a lot for completing their education and without the availability of suitable jobs, it makes their life bad to worse.
