The governments of the day have been focusing on skill building in a big way to create a workforce ready for employment. However, the ground reality shows that there is an uneasy relationship between skill building and employment in India. This paper interrogates the role of major participants in the process of skill building namely, the state, corporate, NGOs and the communities and identifies the challenges at the grassroots level in the process of skill building. The paper critiques the passive role which the communities are required to play in the process of skill building and identifies the larger and latent challenges which must be decoded to address the relationship between skill development and employment.
