FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry) in collaboration with (NSDC) National Skill Development Cooperation is going to set up sector skill councils in five employment-intensive sectors.

Rajan Kohli, advisor, FICCI, said, "We in collaboration with NSDC will set up sector skill councils in five employment-intensive sectors like food processing, chemical and petrochemicals, media entertainment, sports and hospitality tourism."

He added, "These would be industry-led councils with an objective to create labour market information systems through research so that there is authentic updated data about the sector like labour supply demand, gaps, emerging trends and so on."

"With the help of industry, occupational standards will be set up. All stakeholders will be able to use this information system," he said, according to a report by PTI.

NSDC, which is acting as a development institution by funding creation of skill development capacities, has mandate from Government of India to set up 28 sector skill councils.

The councils are being set up in the country as part of the national skill mission, launched by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, with a view to have skilled workforce of at least 500 million people by 2020.
