"India is currently facing an annual paucity of over 10 lakh project management professionals, moreover employability is also a key factor in this regard as most of the already employed workers in infrastructure construction space have not received any vocational training," according to a study titled 'Road Sector Role in Futuristic Development of India,' conducted by The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM).
Commenting on development, ASSOCHAM, secretary general, D.S. Rawat said, "Infrastructure sector is basically a 'projectised industry,' as such project management is of very high importance in this sector where the product is tangible, the cost high and mobilization of resources from related industries central."
"As the projects in infrastructure sector are becoming increasingly complex and with wider scope, the sector is suffering from skilled manpower shortage," said Rawat.
