Delhi government on Monday finalised the nitty gritties of setting up a world class institute on skill development here with technical expertise and assistance from Singapore government.

A cabinet meeting, presided over by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, approved a draft memorandum of understanding to be signed between governments of Delhi and Singapore.
