India is seen abroad as a place that produces high-caliber tech talent, and there’s good reason for that. But it hides a dark side: most of the engineers being churned out by the thousands of colleges in India are not even employable. The ones who come to the limelight are mostly the cream from premier colleges like the IITs.

It says over 36,000 engineering students from IT-related departments of more than 500 colleges took an automated test using machine learning.

The study says that only 4.77 percent of those who took the test were assessed to be employable in software development jobs. Two-thirds of the tested students could not even write code that compiles.
