Finance Minister Mr Pranab Mukherjee met the NSDC Board on September 22, 2009 in New Delhi, where he addressed them on his vision and expectations from the NSDC:

“In order to sustain a 9% growth rate in the Indian economy , it is imperative to generate sufficient and high quality skilled work force, with a quantum leap in both the skill development capacity and in the number of skills and trades in which training is being imparted. The Prime Minister’s skill development mission aims to achieve the aforesaid objective. A private sector led skill development corporation is an integral part of the mission and the co-ordinated action plan for skill development, which was approved by the Union Cabinet in May, 2008.

“The vision, strategy and core principles of the skill development mission have been articulated clearly in the Prime Minister’s Nation Council on Skill Development. The vision has four components, namely, massive ambition manifesting in creation of 500 million skilled people by 2022; high inclusivity; dynamic and self-healing adjustment process; and, focus on outcomes, consumer choice and competition. The strategy has six components, the most salient of which are that skills must be made fungible and bankable. The specific mandate of the corporation [NSDC] is to stimulate and coordinate private sector initiatives in the skill development sector, with a view to realizing the core vision of the Skill Development Council.”
