The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) initiated a strategic partnership through a joint workshop with Wadhwani Foundation with the aim to catalyse skill development and entrepreneurship initiatives of Government of India.
At the event, the Minister of State (I/C) Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy said that strategic partnerships with organisations that express deep interest to promote entrepreneurship and encourage skill development initiatives in India is a big step towards scaling skilling initiatives in India. He stated this cooperation has given us enough strength and support to carry forward the initiatives in this sector. The creation of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is a dream project of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, envisaging to bring under one umbrella skill development programmes currently spread across various Ministries and Departments. The outcome is to create more jobs such that people who are skilled and trained get employed and the demand of the demographic dividend of the country is satiated.
