The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved setting up of Indian Institute of Skills (IISs) at different locations across the country. The IISs shall augment the global competitiveness of key sectors of Indian economy by providing high quality skill training, applied research education and a direct connection with industry.
 
The Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode will be explored for promotion of IIS at select locations based on demand and available infrastructure, an official statement said.
 
“By leveraging advantages of private sector enterprise and public capital in terms of Government land, it would create new institutes of expertise, knowledge and competitiveness,” the statement said.
 
IISs will provide opportunity to aspiring youth across the country to have access to highly skilled training, and enhance the scope of accountability through linkage with industry and global competitiveness across sectors. (RKS)
