Dedicated partners such as RISE INDIA help us add value to the lives of countless youth through efficient education, training, skill and entrepreneurship development.”
Mr.Ajay Chhangani, CEO, RISE INDIA stated, “This is a proud moment for RISE INDIA. This initiative not only contributes to the Prime Minister’s Skill India Mission, but also creates a robust skill ecosystem for the youth by generating value in skilled professionals. Together with OLA, we will enhance the capacities of driving training centres/programmes across the country to provide effective training and development in the country.”
