The success of any nation largely depends on the capability, efficiency, knowledge and skill of its human resources. The whole education system is for the fulfillment of this future need. In this case, the present education is the future possibility of development of any nation. Presently, technical education is heavily leaned towards its capability to enrich students with knowledge and skills in obtaining a lucrative job. The technical education is driven towards commercial competition, which is imposed by economic forces. Engineering colleges are started growing like mushrooms throughout India and especially in Gujarat. Most of the students have acquired their school education in regional languages. They learned English but only as one paper to get some good marks. In these circumstances, English is an ambiguous language for the regional language students. They tend to commit grammatical errors in their understanding, writing and conversation. In Technical education, students need to learn English only in 1 or 2 semesters. Though, later on they pass out their engineering, they then find it difficult to converse in English. They may be good in their core branches; they find difficulty in conversing and passing their knowledge and ability. Most of the colleges are opened up by private investors. So, to cut the expenditure, they appoint English teachers on temporary lecture basis. Due to lack of clear policy by the government, both students and English teachers have to suffer. The quality of the most of the engineering institutes is questionable. Due to the failure of giving employability skills, students particularly and nation in the large context have to suffer.
