The National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), co-promoted by the finance ministry with the mandate to involve the private sector in training 500 million people by 2022, is planning to set up 28 Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) across verticals.

Currently, 27-28 SSC proposals are in the pipeline. We hope to create these over a period of time,” said Dilip Chenoy, chief executive officer of NSDC.

It has already incorporated six sector skills councils in automotive - called Automotive Skills Development Council, energy, retail, private security, media, entertainment and animation, and IT and ITeS. The function of NSDC would be to support the funding requirement of SSC and represent in project implementation. Each SSC would have its own governing body, he said.
