India has vast storehouse of knowledge in various fields but general awareness of much of it is inadequate. We all live in a knowledge society; only those people who are able to convert knowledge into Skilled Action become its real asset. In this respect, our Hon’ble Prime Minister has aptly coined a statement MSDC “Make in India, Skill India, Digital India and Clean India”.
