Abstract: Today India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and with liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation it is poised to grow further. But the question arises whether we are really ready for this growth? Whether our students are skilled enough to compete worldwide and be a partner in this growth mechanism? The answer is big ‘No’. It is a fact that education, lifelong learning and training are essential, but by themselves inadequate to help individuals gain good and decent jobs. The employability scenario of graduates in India is undoubtedly an area of great concern. In recent times information Communication Technology plays an important role for the employability scenario in India. The old concepts of literate and illiterate society have been replaced by digital divided. Considering the growing demand of industry it is high time for all the students to be part of ICT driven education and training system. Further the growing demand of artificial intelligence and data analytics put the students in more challenging position to obtain a job. The present paper is a conceptual one and it will be an addition to the existing literature related to employability issues.
