Dr E Balagurusamy, member - education, state planning commission, Government of Tamil Nadu stated that, engineering students acquires low employability skills and this is due to the present grading system in higher education and low level marks to enter professional institution. 

He said this at the inauguration of 'ICTACT Bridge', an event for employability skills conducted by the ICT Academy of Tamil Nadu in association with Nasscom in Madurai. More than 50% engineering colleges are of poor quality and how could such bad quality students, bad quality teachers and bad quality institutions produce students of employable status..?? Only 20% are best of the lot, and they were found to be employable as per the industries that employed them.
