The project will support implementation of the Government’s skill development strategy, outlined as per NSDM and in the National Policy for Skills Development and Entrepreneurship (NPSDE), over six years (2017-2023).
The outputs under the SANKALP project will be monitored annually through the Results Framework and are therefore synchronized with the DLI (Disbursement Linked Indicators) matrix.
