K.Suresh Addresses National Conference on Inclusivity: Adding Value to Economy & Society

Mr. Kodikunnil Suresh Minister of State for Labour & Employment, Government of India has stressed that in a country like India where the scale and proportion of the problem is huge and issues are so diverse in nature, government efforts alone can not make a difference. Shri Suresh was addressing a one day long National Conference on Inclusivity: Adding Value to Economy & Society organised by the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) here in New Delhi today. He said Indian industry must come forward and take up active measures to bring the marginalized section of society in to economic mainstream. It is important to create sustainable models to empower weaker sections to productively participate in economic mainstream and Nation Building process.

He said the nation is in the threshold of inclusive development and taking all out efforts to bring all the excluded people to the mainstream. Bringing them back to the stream by drawing their confidence is going to be a tough task, due to the marginalization they faced for centuries. Definitely the involvement of organizations like CII can help in motivating all concerned to go for affirmative action and to see that the things are happening.

The Minister also congratulated Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) for taking the Affirmative Action agenda forward and encouraging active industry participation. He said as per figures, around 23% of our population is SC and ST communities. More than 50% of BPL families belong to SC/ST community.

The minister sais though in recent years the industry has grown, creating wealth for the country. However, the fact cannot be ignored, that India is also a country with a large number of poor and destitute. We are still plagued by low literacy rates and large numbers unemployable. These are not normal characteristics of a modern nation which is aspiring to be a world economic power. There are two India now. One is the rich one and the other is the poor. The rich one has to take the leadership role in providing better living opportunities to the poor and to develop them. The role of CII becomes far more important at this juncture, to be a link between the industries and the local community.

Shri Suresh said a nation cannot be built on the ruins of hunger, malnutrition, ill health and illiteracy. If the trend continues, our chances of gaining from globalization on the strength of our human resources are slim. This is a major challenge for all of us and creating opportunities for the large, deprived sections of society are extremely important and a responsibility for Government and Industry.

The minister informed that among many important decisions in the area of Affirmative Action, the most recent one being the reservations of jobs in all public sector undertakings. Also recently, The Union cabinet approved the proposal to provide quota for SC/STs in promotions. MSME also initiated the scheme wherein all Government departments and state run enterprises will give preference to small units including those belonging to Schedule caste and tribes in procurement of goods and services. Of the 20 percent procurement target 4 percent of the orders will have to be allotted to Schedule caste and tribes entrepreneurs.

Also in the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act more than 50% of beneficiaries are from SC/St community. He said in his ministry i.e. Ministry - Ministry of Labour and Employment, apart from running vocational Programmes for marginalized sections also render Educational and Vocational Guidance to educated SC/ST job seekers and also organise Confidence Building Programmes and Personality Development Programmes. We started ITI exclusively for the SC/ST students.

Some States have special schemes by Ministry of Labour and Employment. The main activities of this centre are to provide Coaching- cum- Interview Guidance to job seekers and also provide information about the job opportunities which are available under public and private sector organizations. It also creates awareness and encourages the job seekers to take up various training facilities which are available with Government or Private Institutions.

Shri Suresh further added that the centres also maintain close contact with the Employment Exchange and provide linkage with their Institutions as catalyst. The job seekers are also guided and motivated by the centres to take up Self-Employment. The centres are located all across the country at Aizwal, Bangalore, Calcutta, Delhi, Guwahati, Hissar, Hyderabad, Imphal, Jabalpur, Jaipur, Jowai, Kanpur, Mandi, Chennai, Nagpur, Ranchi, Bhubneswar, Surat, Thiruvananthapuram, Jammu, Kohima, Jalandhar, Nahar Lagun and Puducherry. In addition, Industrial Training Institutes( ITIs) target regions with concentration of vulnerable social groups such as ST, SC, minorities, women, illiterate and less skilled for active labour market policies; Out of 14 lakh training seats available at the ITIs throughout the country, over 25 per cent seats are exclusively created for the women.Reservation to SC/STs, Disabled, OBCs, Ex-servicemen etc. At present, there is no fee for SC and ST candidates.

He said It is good to note that Indian Industry has set out an Agenda which includes Education, Employability, Entrepreneurship and Employment along with a Code of Conduct to be followed to include SC/ST community in to economic mainstream.

The Minister said Affirmative Action is an effective tool. Other countries like US, Malysia, Japan, South Africa are practicing Affirmative Action. Indian Industry may learn from other countries.

Thus Doing Affirmative Action and making efforts to include marginalized sections in to mainstream India will not only address the needs of the large deprived section of the country but will also help industry to grow and will give the necessary fillip to Indian Growth Story, Shri Suresh added,.

Shri Suresh also launched a CII Web Portal “NACDOR Job Portal” on this occasion.

Sri. D. Raja. M. P and Secretary, Communist Party of India, Sri. B. Muthuraman, CII National Committee on Affirmative Action & Vice-Chairman Tata Steel Limitedwere the other dignitaries who spoke on the occasion.
