I feel privileged and honoured to be part of “Chandigarh Skill Development Mission. The vision of 'Skill India' by our honourable Prime Minister is remarkable.

I believe this can be achieved, if we equip our youth especially poor and school / college dropout’s with skills that are required to meet the demands of our rapidly growing economy.

This web portal www.utcsdm.org describes all the Skill related schemes running under Chandigarh Administration. The emphasis is to enable youth with relevant / employable skills, thereby improving their social acceptance.

Chandigarh Administration has set a vision of equipping 10288 youths with employable skills by year 2020. Our state ranked third during IndiaSkills Competitions 2018 held at Delhi.

Finally, I want to assure you that CSDM team of hard working officials are doing their best to give youth the required edge to make his/her mark in this competitive environment.
