The initiative aims to elevate the profile and improve the presence of India’s young talent in international markets. With mobility of global talent, India’s skilled workforce will be extended toseveral other destined markets which will provide meaningful job opportunities to the youth, propelling India’s economic progress by recognising its talent.

The International Kaushal Mahotsav will be organised in a phased manner and will include several crucial aspects for the holistic development of the candidates including counselling, free screening, motivational sessions, candidate and employee registrations, language testing, trade testing, and mapping of prospective candidates for the program. The International Kaushal Mahotsav will witness participation from several international employers, and the registrations are open to all the interested candidates with any education background.

Lauding the initiative, Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO (Officiating), NSDC, “NSDC is working with multiple international agencies to connect Indian youth with international opportunities and this international recruitment drive is one amongst many such initiatives in this direction. India has a long history of migration and as globalization shapes the world, the Indian diaspora across the globe has undergone a splendid change. Today, Indian talent is playing a significant role in the success of global technology powerhouses and has come to be known in variety of fields. It is no exaggeration to say that Indians have ascended the corporate ladder around the world and have played crucial roles in establishing some of the world’s most successful businesses. Along with this, the challenge to churn talent in quick time has also brought with it an opportunity to equip youth with opportunities that can help them find an answer to their aspirations in distant lands.


And taking this forward, along with our partners LTSU, we have come together to build this unique platform, International Kaushal Mahotsav for employers and jobseekers to provide access to India’s capable youth for meeting the best of international employers, encouraging placements in global markets. To make sure that the youth take full advantage of this world of opportunities, creating a future-ready workforce is imperative as this holds the key to an economically connected world. With this, at NSDCI, we will continue to build such initiatives for our youth population by reimagining the current approach and creating strong partnerships for international mobility, preparing the youth for future of work, and revitalising the world economy.”

On the development, Dr. Sandeep Singh Kaura, Chancellor, LTSU and Advisor to NSDC International, said, “India is known for providing skilled talent to various countries to help them address their market demands and to further augment this progress, we are delighted to partner with NSDC International to support the growth of India’s youth. Lamrin Tech Skills University is known for harmonising technology with applied skills, addressing the crucial skill gap and nurturing global leaders. With our rich experience, I am certain that our collaboration with NSDCI to organise India’s first International Kaushal Mahotsav will provide several overseas job


opportunities across sectors to our talented young minds, making them confident and capable for fulfilling their aspirations and matching the demands of the global industry.”

The mega international recruitment drive will witness participation from international employers from USA, Canada, UK, Europe, GCC, Western and South Asia, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and East and South Asia to provide different job roles listed on the portal in sectors like automation, logistics, production, electronics, apparel, tourism, Healthcare, retail, hospitality, facility management, construction, Food & Beverage, Marine, Agriculture & Horticulture and more.

A report noted that the demand for sectoral demand for Indian migrants would increase over the next five years, especially in GCC, Europe, the USA, and Australia. Therefore, moving towards standard mechanisms for skill gap mapping and a global skill harmonization framework is significant to improve the incomes of the migrating workforce.
