National Skill Development Corp (NSDC) Board today accepted resignations of MD and CEO Dilip Chenoy and COO Atul Bhatnagar, paving the way for restructuring of the skill development body.

The resignations of the two top functionaries last week came amid reports that the government, which has taken the skill development initiative as top priority, was not happy with the functioning of the body as it was not in pace with the demand and was lagging in strengthening private partnership.

NSDC is a public private partnership under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

“Dilip Chenoy, MD & CEO, has been an able leader through NSDC’s initial leg of the skilling mission. And as the organisation prepares to enter its next phase of growth, Dilip has decided to step down from this position.

“He and Atul Bhatnagar, COO, NSDC, have submitted their resignations to the Board, which has been accepted at the board meeting today,” according to a statement issued on behalf of NSDC.

There were reports from the industry being unhappy for not ushering in more private partnership in the skill development initiative.

They said that NSDC was lagging behind on the ambitious programme of creating ecosystem for skills and industry bodies were not happy with the sector skills councils of NSDC.

NSDC facilitates or catalyses initiatives that can potentially have a multiplier effect and the approach is to develop partnerships with multiple stakeholders and build on current efforts.

It aims at scaling up efforts necessary to achieve the objective of skilling/up-skilling 150 million people by 2022.
