MoS for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Rajeev Chandrasekhar on Thursday said that there is no deficit of talent in the country but an increased demand for talented and skilled Indians across the globe.

The minister urged the National Skills Development Corporation and the Ministry to work out plans to evolve closer partnerships between the industry and the skilling ecosystem for sustainable solutions. 

Stating that it is the vision of PM Narendra Modi that digital opportunities should be equitably available to each and every Indian, he further said that efforts should be taken up not just with premier educational institutions but also with Universities and Institutes in tier 2 and tier 3 cities.

Chandrasekhar, was present on the occasion of the signing of the memorandum of understanding between the Electronics Sector Skill Council of India (ESSCI) and Samsung India for a skilling initiative that aims to empower the youth with industry-relevant skills in emerging technology domains to enhance their employability.

Welcoming Samsung’s initiative with ESSCI to empower young Indians with skills, the Minister said that it “was a true hallmark of being a good partner to India and the Indians” and urged them to headquarter their programmes in tier 2 and tier 3 cities to ensure skilling opportunities for the hundreds of thousands of students from these places.
