India is one of the most populated countries of the world .With rich diversity in culture and known for rich traditions, India is also one of the progressing countries making it to TOP 50 Countries of the world.

As per the recent trends, it has been observed that the role of the academic qualifications of the students is increasingly reducing and in order to add value to the employability opportunities, students are in dire need of the skill component. The employers are likely to recruit those students who are more skill oriented and has a combination of the relevant employability attributes necessary for the job performance.

In simple words it can be said that the success of the students in the present knowledge based economy will increase only when they are more equipped with their skills and unlike the previous scenario their jobs do not depend on the marks obtained in various subjects. Today’s economy and society increasingly demands people with an ability to cope with change and adapt quickly to new environments and people.
In order for people to achieve a desired performance at a task they must be provided with opportunities to perform the actions required so they can improve their performance at this task until they master it.

Such curriculum is nowadays being developed and distributed by AICTE and AICTE has taken an initiative to provide the skill oriented education through SKP.
