  • 1 Know Who You Are

    Find out the kind of person you are. Do you like to be with people or you are the kind of person who likes to be on your own. Do you like excitement or you like routine and a structure to your life. You prefer to be on the move all the time or you like to stay in a peaceful place. Of course, there is no test that will provide you instant answers. This process may take a while. You can take responsibility for chores at home turn by turn – grocery, vegetable shopping, paying bills, organizing get-togethers, house-cleaning, maintenance, gardening, cooking – all these activities help you make up your mind. They are safe, cost effective and need only marginal investment of time.

  • 2 Explore the World of Work

    Before choosing an option, you need to know what is available. However, the job profiles are so many that it is impossible to explore all of them. To make it easier, look around and observe the lifestyles of the adults. Short-list those that you find interesting.

  • 3 Match the Options to Personality

    There are too many choices to make – whether it is the ice-cream flavours or the channels to watch, there is no dearth of variety. And at times it is the variety that makes it more complicated to choose. If you are an early riser, then options that require working late into the night may not suite you. If you are a people-person, you are going to be extremely unhappy if you have to work on your own.

  • 4 Get into CareerAction Mode

    Well, this step involves trying out your thoughts and feelings. During holidays or some free time, you can volunteer for many activities. You can join clubs in your locality, in school/college or in society like bird-watching, trekking, debating, music. During summers, you can volunteer to help companies during their campaigns. Along with the academics, these other skills are equally vital.

Ban on new law colleges

The Bar Council of India (BCI) has decided to impose a three year ban on opening any law colleges in the country other than national law colleges. The BCI took this step to address a mushrooming of law schools across the country. The Bar Council of India (BCI) plans to set a maximum limit on the number of law schools that can be started in each state of India, in a move to curb the growth of law schools with bad infrastructure adding to the already standing 1,500 law schools in India. What’s BCI ? BCI, a permitted body that regulates legal practice and education in India, passed a resolution to this effect on Sunday and called for an urgent need for improving the quality of legal education. “The Bar Council of India has imposed a ban for a period of three years on opening of new law colleges in the country. No fresh proposal or application shall be entertained for any new institution,” the resolution said. The apex bar body added that it would also work on improving existing institutions, and that those without proper infrastructure or faculty would be shut. Why BCI is imposing ban on opening new law colleges ? “The idea behind the ban is to clamp down on the unregulated growth of law colleges across the country and also to improve the falling standards of legal education. For the next three years, Bar Council of India will lay stress on improvement of standards of existing institutions and institutions that have no proper infrastructure and faculty will be closed down,“ said Manan Mishra, the chairman of BCI. Bar Council of India, established by an act of Parliament and exercising powers given to it under the Advocates Act, 1961, promotes legal education and lays down standards of such education in consultation with universities and state bar councils. It is also responsible for granting affiliation to all new law colleges. Taking about the regulatory role of BCI in legal education, Mishra said, “BCI’s role is similar to the role of medical council of India (MCI). For setting up a new law college, the body intending to do so, first has to get a no-objection certificate (NoC) from the state government, followed by affiliation letter from a university. Thereafter, an approval has to be sought from BCI, which appoints a committee headed by a retired judge of a high court to carry out physical inspection of the new institute. Only after a go-ahead is received from the special committee, a new law college can start functioning. ” The resolution expresses concerns at the falling standards of legal education in the country pointing out that there are about 1,500 law colleges in the country. “Due to lethargy of some universities and state governments, several colleges are running without a proper infrastructure. State governments seldom take interest in appointing law faculties in government law colleges and constituent units,” it said. “There is no dearth of advocates and the existing institutions are sufficient to produce required number of law graduates annually,” the statement added. According to data form Bar Council, there were 1.3 million lawyers in India as of 2011. In 2016, a similar attempt was made by BCI to regulate the rising number of law colleges, and an advisory was issued to state governments and universities to not give NOCs and affiliations. “Despite that, 300 colleges were granted NOCs and affiliations. And when BCI refused to recognise the affiliations, the institutes went to courts and got orders against us,” Mishra said. “But this time we have decided to impose a ban.” Dr Ranbir Singh, the vice-chancellor of National Law University, Delhi, supported the move as a temporary measure. “There is no harm in having such a measure in place, considering the large number of law colleges that have mushroomed. But this has to be temporary. There is no doubt that we are having issues with legal education in the country. And when we talk of legal education, an important aspect of it is infrastructure and teaching faculty. We have seen in the past that in some states where engineering colleges have closed down, they were converted into law colleges. So the infrastructure was there, but no faculty. Faculty crunch is a big problem at the moment. Even premier institutes such as national law colleges are facing a faculty problem.”

National Research Foundation

Focus on technology skills and research The government plans on providing skill training to 10 million people in digital technologies like AI, IoT and big data, which the Finance Minister says will help address the serious skills shortage in the IT sector. This will also boost innovation in industries which are lagging behind such as agriculture. "We will increase our efforts to improve the skills of our youth in newer areas such as artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, etc., valued highly within and outside the country to ensure they can secure high paying jobs both in India and abroad," FM Nirmala Sitharaman said. The government has set up substantial funds for the National Research Foundation (NRF) in order to advance new innovation research. This is a clear sign that the GoI is finally taking technology research seriously, having lagged far behind nations like US and China in terms of locally filed patents. Akin to the US National Science Foundation, India's NRF will work closely with universities and premier educational institutions to bring innovation research to the forefront.
