Bipin Shah, Partner at Titan Capital, said, “Technology is changing at such a rapid pace and so are skills required to be employable. India now has the chance to dominate the supply of skilled employees to the whole world, but the sad reality is that many unskilled graduates are coming out of tier-2colleges.
