Ankit Shyamsukha, CEO, ICA Edu Skills
We would like to congratulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for giving special focus on skilling as this is the stepping stone for becoming Aatmanirbhar. With over eight million graduates across streams entering the job market this financial year, the announcement of amending the Apprenticeship Act is a huge move. The collaboration with the United Arab Emirates for skill qualification and accreditation will make our youth more skilled as per the international skilling standards. Even the collaboration with Japan for transferring Japanese vocational models will surely bridge the prevalent skilling gap in our country. The budget allocation for the education sector will surely increase the competence and lucidity.
