‘I call upon the nation to take a pledge to make India the skill capital of the world’ –Narendra Modi
Yes, our prime minister definitely understands the importance of skill development for the progress of the country. And it is heartening to see that a number of steps are being taken in this direction by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE). 15th July marked the first anniversary of the ‘Skill India’ initiative and also saw the inauguration of the first edition of the India Skills Competition by our president Shri Pranab Mukherjee. This was a national competition that aimed towards selecting India’s top participants for the biennial World Skills International Competition to be held in 2017 at Abu Dhabi.
