The minister said that NIELIT should look at the training methodology that changing India needs where people have started learning using mobile phone.

‘NIELIT has good presence in East. It should open more centres to meet skill training targets under Digital India programme. It should increase its presence in southern part of country, states like Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh,’ Prasad said.
