Our honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, made the announcement at an event called "Aatmanirbhar Arthvyavastha" that the Union Budget for 2022 intends to "make a four-fold increase in public investments as compared to those in the UPA regime and that the measure will open up immense opportunities."

He also said that the union budget was "people-friendly" and "progressive" after the event.

Roland Landers, CEO of the All India Gaming Federation (AIGF), stated that the strategies and plans proposed for the gaming industry are very encouraging.

Additionally, he stated, "AIGF is looking forward because the task force will give a major boost to the game development sector and also give the gaming industry momentum and power."

Because they will be playing a significant consultative role, the domain experts from AIGF and the skill games will be of assistance.

He also said that the four-year extension of the tax will help the over 300 companies that make up the start-up ecosystem.

The gaming industry is becoming one of the most powerful sectors because of these implementations.

Manpower is still the industry's biggest constraint. The gaming industry is expected to create between 60,000 and 80,000 new jobs by 2025, according to industry experts, and the gaming sector has been attracting investments, as reported by Deccan Herald.

The gaming industry is becoming more attractive to job seekers.

The gaming industry has a lot of potential to provide a lot of jobs for young people who are very concerned about their careers.

Under the direction and support of AICTE, this AVGC promotion task force may cause the creation of between 50,000 and 85,000 jobs and employability.

As a result, a variety of courses geared toward the workplace will greatly enhance employability.

However, technology is also developing at a rate that is faster than sound.

New age skills like NFT, augmented reality, virtual reality, and aspirants who are interested in joining this industry in light of evolving technology should also embrace the metaverse.

The head of Team Lease Digital's business, Gautam Vora, says that 3D animation, testers, virtual reality (VX), game design, and game development will have a lot of potential.
