The technology leader is pushing their Android Skills Program aimed at over 2,000 Indian universities. Due to increased enrollment in this program, the Indian economy will be expecting 4 million Android developers ready to be employed by 2018.
A certification test is used by the Android Skills Program which specifies a user’s skill level in android development. As per Opp Trends, a certification in this program would not just indicate a job offer from Google in the region, but it can also be used as an independent authentication of skill.

According to India Today, Indian government is also supporting the advancement program as an initiative to create jobs.
