SSRDP is pleased to inform you that we are hosting India Way Forward – National Conference on Skilling India and Fortifying Its Roots on the 16th of January 2015 at Bangalore. The mandate for emerging India is youth employment and rural development; they need to go hand in hand.

The dissonance between academic teachings and learning’s required in Corporate India or for a budding entrepreneur has become acute. Skilling the Indian youth is imperative to bridge this gap. The session invites Corporate India, Universities, Placement agencies,Entrepreneurs, Youth to recognize the challenges and chart a way forward.
