As per a recent India Skills Report (ISR), not even half the Indian graduates are employable as they lack professional skills. In 2021, only 45.9 percent of the graduates were found to be employable. Such alarming circumstances are indicative of the skill gap which needs immediate attention. This is where global edtech players like upGrad are on a mission to push Bharat towards becoming employable.
