The Human Resource Development Minister Dr M M Pallam Raju on 4 September 2013 inaugurated the sixth Global Skills Summit (GSS) at FICCI. The goal of HRD Ministry was to achieve national skilling 50 crore Indians by 2022. For this purpose, the challenge would be to engage the youth of the country to participate in developing skills without inhibitions.


It is important to note that the programmes have been structured in such a way that the private sector and industry would play a leadership role and an enabling environment would be provided for skill development. There would be inclusion of Industry as partners in setting up schools, skill development centres, polytechnics, community colleges and even provide Skill Programmes in Colleges and Universities. The opportunity for the purpose of promotion of skill development in existing educational institutions is also being explored.


In the recent past, National Skills Development Agency (NSDA) was formed for National Skill Qualification Framework.
