Industry Chamber Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) has appointed Dilip Chenoy as its Director General. Prior to this, he was Chairman of Sant Longowal Institute of Engineering and Technology and Member, Board of Advisors, IILM. He was awarded the Game Changer Award in 2015 and the Rashtriya Media Ratan Award in 2013.
He had resigned from NSDC in late 2015 amid reports that the government was unhappy with the functioning of the skills development body. He was appointed by the previous Congress-led UPA government.
Former skill development and entrepreneurship minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy had earlier expressed displeasure at the way NSDC was being run in the past and lashed out at its failure to achieve the industry’s needs for trained manpower.
