  • Education, along with health, received only about 60% of the planned allocation in the 11th Five-Year Plan as against an overall realisation of 87%. The preparatory work done during the 11th Plan has led to improvement in absorptive capacities, and these sectors are ready for significant increases in allocations. It is estimated that the GBS allocated to these two sectors, including skill development initiatives, will need to be increased by at least 1.2 percentage point of GDP Creating jobs Growth of manufacturing in the 11th Plan is likely to be only 8%. It needs to be raised to 11-12% per year in the 12th Five-Year Plan to create jobs for a growing labour force. This is urgent since agriculture will no longer absorb more workers, and may indeed release some of the existing workforce. The manufacturing sector is likely to create around three to four million jobs over and above the pace of job creation in the recent past
