Employment Opportunities in Automotive Sector in India

India's emergence as a centre of manufacturing for international vehicle makers, that are adding huge capacities, will result in employing five million people over the next three years.

This is a total of both, direct and indirect employment growth as a result of the expansion. Estimates put together by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) suggest that this will be the extra added between now and 2012, to support the ever-increasing demand for new vehicles.

And, says SIAM, a further seven million will be added in the period from 2012 to 2016, almost doubling the count to 25 million from the present 13 million; again, this comprises both direct and indirect employment. This would make the automotive sector one of the largest job generating sectors in India in the current decade.

Of the five million new jobs in the next three years, about 25 per cent will be for managerial functions, 60 per cent will be for skilled labour and the remaining lot will comprise unskilled labour.

The home-grown manufacturer Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (M&M Ltd.) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC), a skill development council for the automotive sector. Under this, India?s leading SUV maker Mahindra and ASDC will offer skill development training program to generate employment opportunities in the Indian auto sector. This means there iwll be an increase in job opportunities for Automation Specialists.
