NIIT.tv is aligned to the Digital India and Skill India campaigns announced by Hon’ble Prime Minister, Mr. Narender Modi earlier this year. The initiative, which was launched on October 6, 2015, seeks to offer very scalable yet a highly economical model, thereby enabling much faster achievement of Skill India goals.
