IndiaSkills, the country’s biggest skill competition is implemented by National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), an apex skill development organisation working under the aegis of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE).

IndiaSkills Competition is designed to demonstrate the highest standards of skilling and offers a platform for young people to showcase their talent at the national level which then makes them eligible for participation in the WorldSkills competition held at a global stage in a different country every two years.

The IndiaSkills Competition—regional and national—is held every two years with the support of State Governments, Industry, Sector Skill Councils (SSCs), State Skill Development Missions (SSDMs), Corporates, and Partner institutes. IndiaSkills Competition has the potential to reach the grassroots level and make an impact.


IndiaSkills 2024 National Competition was held from 15 to 19 May 2024. Over 900 Participants from 30+ states/ union territories competed in 61 skills such as beauty therapy, cyber security, floristry, web technology, cloud computing, water technology, painting and decorating, health and social care, among others.


Of the 61 skills that competitions were held for, there were 10 skills which were exhibition skills – these have been incorporated to showcase certain new age skills like Drone film making AR and VR and certain traditional skills like Shoe Making and Woven fabric design development.

However, it is important to note that these exhibition skills will not be included in the official contingent representing us at WorldSkills 2024 in Lyon. This distinction ensures that while we celebrate and promote a diverse range of talents, only selected core skills will be competing at the international event.


WorldSkills India stands as a flagship initiative under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India, and is executed in collaboration with the National Skill Development Corporation. Since 2011, NSDC has spearheaded India's participation in WorldSkills International competitions through this initiative. India's performance has shown remarkable improvement over the years: from securing the 39th position in 2011, the country advanced to the 29th position in 2015, climbed to the 13th position in 2019, and impressively reached the 11th position in 2022.

The 2022 edition marked India's largest and most successful campaign to date. A total of 56 competitors showcased their talents across 50 diverse fields, including beauty therapy, hairdressing, mechatronics, bakery, cybersecurity, and renewable energy.
