Setting up of Indian Institute of Skills

Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has approved the proposal to set up Indian Institute of Skills (IISs) in 3 locations viz. Kanpur, Mumbai and Ahmedabad in the country.

For this reason and to promote further growth of the Indian Skills sector overall, new measures have been initiated by the Government of India to establish state of the art training institutions called Indian Institutes of Skill (IISs) in Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Kanpur on Not-for-profit Public Private Partnership (N-PPP) basis.
