Apart from survey on employment and unemployment conducted by NSSO, employment exchange statistics regarding jobseekers are also  complied based on information received from States. There are presently 978 employment exchanges in the country leading to approximately one  exchange per 12.4 lakh population.

          Government has created a separate Ministry of Skill Development and
Entrepreneurship for making broad policies for all other Ministries/Departments with regard to market requirements and skill development and co-ordination with all concerned for evolving an appropriate skill development framework, removal of disconnect between the demand for and supply of skilled man power through vocational and technical training, skill up-gradation & building of new skills.  Government of India has set target of skilling 5 crore persons in the 12th Plan. Government is imparting vocational training under Craftsmen Training Scheme (CTS), Apprenticeship Training Scheme (ATS) and skill development through modular courses under Skill Development Initiative Schemes. The Government runs various public employment generation schemes like Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), Swarna Jayanti Shahri Rozgar Yojana (SJSRY) restructured into National Urban Livelihoods Mission (NULM) since September, 2013, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY), and Prime Minister's Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP). In addition, the government is promoting labour-intensive manufacturing and increasing employment opportunities by promoting tourism
and agro-based industries.
