He said that the Skill Development Mission would go a long way in equipping the youth with required essential skills for ensuring employability in the corporate sector.
“Our Prime Minister has initiated the skill development mission to train and equip the younger generation with skills and training vital for employability, as more and more trained manpower would be needed for the multinationals which are coming to India under the Make in India initiative,” he added.
