National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC), a government of India enterprise under the ministry of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME), on Monday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Mitutoyo South Asia in New Delhi. According to the MoU, Mitutoyo South Asia will “provide skill manpower to MSME units and create employment by way of providing training on latest technological machines of coordinate measuring machine (CMM)”.

“This Skill Development Centre will bridge the gap between institution and industry in the area of industrial metrology,” said a press statement.
