NSQF Notification

On 19th December 2013, the Cabinet Committee on Skill Development approved the National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF), a quality assurance framework which organizes qualifications according to a series of levels of knowledge, skills and aptitude. These levels are defined in terms of learning outcomes which the learner must possess regardless of whether they were acquired through formal, non-formal or informal learning.

The NSQF was notified on 27th Dec 2013, and all other frameworks, including the NVEQF (National Vocational Educational Qualification Framework) released by the Ministry of HRD, have ceased to exist, and have been superseded by the NSQF.
