National Skill Development Corporation ( NSDC ) will have Jayant Krishna as interim CEO

The National Skill Development Corp. (NSDC) Tuesday named Jayant Krishna, a special consultant to Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Ltd, as its interim chief executive officer.

NSDC, a public-private partnership under the ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship, has been headless for a month since Dilip Chenoy resigned from the post of its managing director and chief executive.

Krishna comes on deputation from TCS and will be heading the body until the NSDC board finds a permanent arrangement, said the corporation mandated to train 150 million people in skills via its partners by 2022. He has an industry experience of over 29 years and has been actively engaged on apprenticeship reform in India and leads a Confederation of Indian Industry task force on the same.

Chairman of the NSDC board S. Ramadorai, on 4 November said he has started the process of finding new a CEO and chief operating officer (COO).
