National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has signed an agreement with ICDL Asia of Singapore to collaborate on improving digital literacy skills of Indians.
As per the MoU, both parties aim to explore opportunities to implement ICDL certification programmes in India, including skilling one million migrating candidates and other NSDC's school or university initiatives in the next five years.
