Job creation and re-skilling created a lot of stir last year. By introducing industry-relevant skills training for 10 million youth under the Kaushal Vikas Yojana, the government is clearly addressing pressing issues.

The IT industry, for its part, is geared to partner with the government to enable skills training in Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Big Data analytics, 3D printing, virtual reality and robotics — highly valued skills within and outside the country.
