अगले तीन साल मैं आईटी सेक्टर मैं छः लाख लोग नौकरी से निकाल दिए जायेंगे ! क्या देश तैयार है ? :Indian IT firms to layoff up to 2 lakh engineers annually for next 3 years’

सरकार अनभिग्य है की भारत का सबसे बड़ा नौकरी देने वाला सेक्टर यानि आईटी अगले तीन वर्षों मैं छः लाख लोगों को नौकरी से निकाल सकता है और यह लोग किसी और नौकरी के लायक नहीं होंगे . निकलने वाले ३५ वर्ष के होंगे और इनका भविष्य मैं नै नौकरी पाने की संभावना भी नहीं है . सरकार को इस परिस्थिति से निपटने के लिए कारगर कदम उठाने की आवश्यकता है . वैसे भी पिछले तीन वर्षों मैं औद्योगिक प्रगति बिलकुल नहीं के बाबर ही हुयी है स लिए पढ़े लिखे तकनिकी बच्चों को सिर्फ आई टी मैं ही नौकरी मिलती थी . यदि यह बंद हो गया तो हमारे अधिकाँश कोलेज के छात्र क्या करेंगे .

अब तक सरकार का ध्यान सिर्फ राजनीती और चुनाव जीतने पर ही है . अब आवश्यकता अर्थ व्यवस्था को संभालने की है अन्यथा देश रसातल की और जा रहा है . अगर सरकार ने कुछ नहीं किया तो वह दिन दूर नहीं जब हमारे इंजिनियर डिलीवरी बॉय की नौकरी करने के लिए मजबूर हो जायेंगे . इसका एक समाधान सरकारी विभागों व् विश्विद्यालयों का बड़ी संख्या मैं कम्प्यूटरीकरण हो सकता है . रक्षा , मौसम , अंतरिक्ष के नए अनुसंधान के बड़े प्रोजेक्ट शुरू किये जा सकते हैं . इस बीच कर्मचारी छुट्टी लेकर नए विषयों का ज्ञान प्राप्त कर सकते हैं .

Bengaluru: Executive search firm Head Hunters India on Sunday said the job cuts in Information technology (IT) sector will be between 1.75 lakh and 2 lakh annually for next three years due to under-preparedness in adapting to newer technologies.

“Contrary to media reports of 56,000 IT professionals to lose jobs this year, the actual job cuts will be between 1.75 lakh and 2 lakh per year in next three years, due to under- preparedness in adapting to newer technologies,” Head Hunters India founder-chairman and MD K. Lakshmikanth told PTI, analysing a report submitted by McKinsey & Co. at the Nasscom India Leadership Forum on 17 February.

McKinsey and Co. report had said nearly half of the workforce in the IT services firms will be “irrelevant” over the next 3-4 years. McKinsey India managing director Noshir Kaka had also said the bigger challenge ahead for the industry will be to retrain 50-60% of the workforce as there will be a significant shift in technologies.

The industry employs 3.9 million people and the majority of them have to be retrained. “So, when we analyse these figures, it is clear that 30 to 40% of the workforce cannot be retrained or re- skilled. So, assume that half of this workforce can continue to work on old skills, then balance will become redundant.

“So, the number of people who will become redundant in the next three years will be about five to six lakhs. This will workout to, on a average, between 1.75 lakh to 2 lakh per year for next three years,” Lakshmikanth explained. However, he said job cuts will not take place in major cities like Mumbai or Bengaluru, but cities like Coimbatore or a few remote places, he said.

Lakshmikanth further said the IT services industry is passing through an uncertain time as the growth in digital technologies like cloud-based services is happening at a much faster pace and the companies are combining learning of some of the new technologies and reskilling.

“Because of the changing technology, the most affected will be the professionals aged 35 and above, for it would be very difficult for them to get jobs,” Lakhsmikanth said. Asked if it is fair to blame US President Donald Trump’s policy for job cuts, Lakshmikanth said it is not fair because he has fulfilled the promise after winning the elections.

“How can we blame Trump, for he has fulfilled the election promise of giving jobs to local people including IT professionals by tightening H1-B visa norms, which were being misused by companies by paying less to foreign professionals working in US. It is for companies to tackle the situation, and such situation they have undergone in previous years. It is not new for them. They know to tide over it,” he said.

Lakhsmikanth also said it is not fair even to target the Indian government as the IT industry grew on its own in India, but at later stages respective state governments and central governments provided them facilities like land or creating special economic zones, among others.

    Real blood-bath in employment market will come after Artificial Intelligence is commercialised.

    Yes, country is getting ready with Skill Development programmes vigorously launched by Modi Govt. Yet, there is an army of morons continuously abusing PM Modi without realising, it is NOT the job of Government to create jobs and his Govt. is in no way responsible for loss of these jobs.

    They just love / used to be ruled over by Dacoits & Traitors of Congress (I)TALIAN !!!!
    I wish, I could be very, very harsh in my expressions.
