Interviewed few ppl for jobs in tier 2/3 cities
They said they would rather work in Bangalore/Mumbai/Hyderabad than stay back in their villages
They said- they wanted to work with the best
Then ppl blame politicians for not providing jobs to Tier 2/3 cities
Ultimately We want to work in Bay Area or May be HK, SG, AUS, UK, EU, NZ, Dubai etc
Commute : I don’t want spend my life in traffic jams
Employers: who don’t let us take vacations
Infrastructure: bad roads
What would be nice is
- Working from home in a country side
- More time with family
- More time with nature
- I want to grow vegetables whilst I work for an investment bank
Back to country side
@HarshaKallapur in his kannada blog captures this city to village side conundrums!
In simple words - there is no UPTAKE for jobs which ain’t traditional in nature
Politicians can’t solve this cultural logjam
- Ppl willing to stick
-Localities should feel it’s benefiting them
- What If the uptake is negative
- What if the localities misconstrue this as some kind of exploitation shop
- What if Gender related issues prop up at work place?
What if localities don’t like the idea of milieu getting introduced to a city or international services kind of culture?
Is culture uptake the main issue then?!
Seeing 1/3 time of one’s working career spent on understanding complex local culture one would wonder
was it worth leaving everything behind?
Good news is : in #DigitalTransformation world. The country side & village side need not go through a drastic cultural shift. Unlike manufacturing factories
It’s not an Indian problem. It’s a global problem.
Do Governments give subsidies etc?? What can govt do?
Easing taxation confusion arising due to federal and central laws via GST
As an #entrepreneur I honestly feel the dependency on accountants for KYC to GST returns should reduce
In a digitally connected world Ideas & service opportunities are infinite.
Govt cannot ensure campus placements. We are not like communist countries
Govt should focus on
Easing taxation rules
Cutting red tape
