    The fact that India ranks poorly when it comes to number of patents per capita despite having comparatively high number of engineers, doctors and other professionals, points out that skills do matter more than degrees.
    But in this age of information, to make policies, to match the kind of jobs with given talent etc. we need to know what skills are possessed by the population. Hence, certification cannot be avoided.
    The need is to ensure that an engineering degree should mean competency at job. A minimum basic level of learning should have been achieved by the student, whether she’s a graduate from IIT or other regional college.
    Coming back to the question at hand, skills are more important than degrees. There are certain skills for which there are no degrees, for example traditional knowledge of tribes. They do earn livelihood out of it but it is merely subsistence. If marketed properly, it can add immensely to the nation’s wealth.
