Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Mahendra Nath Pandey on Friday announced the opening of online registrations for IndiaSkills 2020, a biennial competition to scout talent from the country. 

IndiaSkills 2020 provides a platform for skilled and talented Indian youngsters to showcase their abilities at regional and national level competitions in over 50 skills.

Regional legs of the competitions are organized across four zones, culminating at the national competition in Delhi. Winners of IndiaSkills will then get a chance to represent the country at the WorldSkills International Competition to be held in China in 2021.

Speaking at the event, Pandey said, “In line with our commitment to make India the Skill Capital of the World, IndiaSkills aims at helping youth in India leverage the immense opportunities that this platform offers to showcase their talent in the best possible way.”

IndiaSkills 2018 witnessed incredible success and I am positive, we will witness more participation in IndiaSkills 2020 and will have a power packed team. I wish the candidates all the luck and hope we create more leaders in vocational training, the minister added.

Interested candidates can register online- www.worldskillsindia.co.in.

The age limit for the competition is for youth born on or after 1 January 1999.

The youth can choose participation in over 50 skill trades

Post the skill competitions held at district, state and regional level, IndiaSkills National Competition will be organized in 2020.

 The 22 winners of Indiaskills 2018 and their experts had represented the country with their outstanding performance at the WorldSkills International 2019 (WSK), held in Kazan, Russia.

India won one gold, one silver, two bronze and 15 Medallions of Excellence at the biggest competition for skills.

India ranked 13th among 63 countries that participated at WorldSkills International 2019, marking it to be the best finish for the country in the coveted skill championship. They were felicitated by the honorable minister with certificates and cash prizes for their remarkable performance. 

 The last IndiaSkills competition was organized in 2018, wherein 22 states and more than 100 corporates participated, that gave 355 competitors a chance to display their skills across various skill competitions.
