Agriculture and allied activities accounts for about 15.7 % of country's GDP and is estimated to employ about 124.7 million people as cultivators and 106.8 million as agricultural labour (Census 2001). Besides this Agriculture Industry employs a large number of people in the Organized and the Unorganized sector, the data pertaining to the same is however not available. Based on the assumptions of Food Grain Production and Manpower required to handle the total produced, the same is derived at (0.20 Million) for Organized and (1.95 Million) for Unorganized sector.
India has about 161 million hectares of arable land of which 55 million is irrigated. With the increase in population the demand for food and Agri produce is increasing, but the supply is constant due to low agricultural productivity. This is predominantly due to improper Farm Management practices and loss in post harvest handling. There is a requirement for specific set of skills in the field of Agriculture.
Considering the above factors, Agriculture Skill Council of India was set up in January 2013 as a Section 25 company under Companies act of Ministry of Company Affairs. The endeavour of ASCI is to work towards building capacity in the Agriculture Industry and bridge the gap between laboratories and farms.

The wellness industry in India is poised to touch Rs. 1,00,000 crore (Rs 1 trillion) by 2015, with a compounded annual growth rate of 15-17%, from about Rs 70,000 crore in 2012 , with a likely shortage of ~600,000 skilled personnel by 2016. FICCI-PwC report had forecast that the number of people employed in the Wellness space could potentially almost treble from over 1 million lakh in 2011 to 3 million by 2015
The major challenges faced by the Indian Wellness domain on the skill development front are in terms of the inadequate availability of training infrastructure, standardized training curriculum (especially at the entry level), the absence of quality trainers in sufficient numbers, easier financial access to outcome-linked skills training initiatives, as also a general misplaced notion about the benefits of vocational training. Matters have not been helped by the fact that the Wellness domain in India is still largely unorganized and fragmented, with a very limited number of companies in the organized space having a pan-India presence.The talent deficit poses extreme threat to the growth and expansion of the whole beauty and wellness industry.
