Adani Group, NSDC sign pact to train 300,000 youth


Adani Group has entered into a pact with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to train 300,000 youth across the country by 2022. As a part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), over 40,000 youth will be trained and assisted towards attaining employment per year, the company said in a statement.

To be spearheaded by the Adani Skill Development Center in partnership with the NSDC, the initiative is the brainchild of Adani Foundation, which is the philanthropic, CSR and sustainability arm of the Adani Group.

“Skill development is integral to nation-building and inclusive socio-economic development. We are committed to the government’s ‘Skill India’ initiative which aims to train millions of youth across some of the most remote & underdeveloped parts of the country,” Adani Foundation Head- Skill Development Jatin Trivedi said.

“ASDC, with the support of NSDC will facilitate some of the most sought after skills to youths, which will enable broad-based & sustainable economic growth,” Trivedi added.
