Explain the statement: "A paradoxical manpower situation is witnessed as a surplus of manpower in certain categories coexist with a shortage of manpower in others".

Answer :

In India, educated unemployment is a common phenomenon. Today, unemployment among students who have done matriculation, graduation and post-graduation are increasing. There is unemployment among one type of technically qualified person on one hand, while there is a dearth of technical skills required for some other job. For example, computer science graduates are increasing day by day, but there are fewer jobs which require their technical skills. On the other hand, there is a dearth of accountants, and there are many vacant positions for an accountant. This situation is known as paradoxical manpower situation where a surplus of manpower in certain categories coexists with a shortage of manpower in others.
