It will benefit Indian companies involved in the skill training space in many ways. It will assist in increasing their business volume, make them a part of an active skill ecosystem and will also give them international exposure. This platform will see training organizations expand their infrastructure and open up more training centres.”   

This will be one mega e-based project that NSDC will undertake to create a comprehensive and cohesive skill ecosystem for MNCs who are looking at trained manpower to support their business requirements.
