Sharada Prasad Committee

Constituted to review, rationalise and optimise the functioning of sector skill councils under National Skills Development Council.
  • Several instances of conflict of interest in the councils’ membership base for ex. A board member of a government-funded apex skilling agency is also a training partner and a promoter of a skill council
  • Scrap all Councils: The Centre should scrap all existing skill councils, many of which have overlapping roles.
  • Oversight Mechanism: Introduce an oversight mechanism on the NSDC, preferably from the central bank, as it is registered as a non-banking finance company
  • Comprehensive Review: Government should review the NSDC’s role and functioning comprehensively with reference to its Memorandum of Association
