Under training programmes, being conducted under Skill India Mission, the youth/workers/ apprentices are getting trained at our locations free of cost for various trades under construction industry. The initiative is targeted at providing adequate skill training/upskilling training to the youthful manpower in next 7 years so as to eradicate the problem of poverty and skill deficiency in India.

The organization has identified a number of people to be trained for upskilling for the period of next 5 years which is tentatively 8,000 per year. NBCC in the last five years has trained a significant number of people for upskilling their skill sets.
