Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Maharashtrian youth display good marketing skills, while people from Karnataka score high on English communication, says a report of online talent testing platform Youth4Work.

Based on the analysis based on number of people who self-assessed their talents online, the report also said that people of Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh show less intent towards self-assessing their talents.

"In marketing skills, people of Maharashtra are ahead of states, whereas people in Karnataka exhibit very cohesive performance," it said.

The report also stated that people in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh take more initiatives to showcase their talents.

"For English Language usage understanding, people from Karnataka come out to be the best of the lot, whereas Andhra Pradesh lags in this," it added.

It said that people from Delhi have better communication skills than other states, whereas people from Andhra Pradesh have the most scope to improve.

"Delhi also leads other states in aptitude, whereas Tamil Nadu stands last," the report said adding all the states seem to understand the need for soft skills related talents like English language and communication and make efforts to know and understand their relative position for them.

Youth4work said that this is the first edition of "yTal India Report - insights on India's Vital Talent scenarios".

It is based on an analysis of nearly 1.5 lakh people self -assessing their five talents.

It said that understanding the talent scenario in states can help skill development agencies, including training institutes and colleges, to plan measures that further improve the scenario.

"The insights and suggestions in this report can help to improve the relevant employability scenarios in those states," Rachit Jain, CEO of Youth4work, said.
