More than 5,000 B.PEd and M.PEd pass outs are roaming jobless, as the state has not appointed Physical Education teachers for past many years.

There are over one lakh vacancies in the different departments of the state. The attempts made by State government for recruitment have failed to derive the desired results.

The State government has failed to start a single Technical Institute leading to the huge number of migration of students interested in Technical Education to other states.

The project of construction and deployment of Technical University and the Medical College in the state has not taken off and still biting the dust in project files.

Adding to this, the State government was failed taking up the Youth Policy formed in 2007 for the all round development of youth to the execution level, whereas the Skill Development Mission progressing on very slow pace.

The Youth Resource Centers were to open in the head-quarters of five commissionaires in the state, each containing facilities such as libraries, reading room and career counselor. for the mental development of youth.

Likewise, the project of youth hostel in Ranchi is still in the pipeline.
