Institutional arrangements comprising of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Sector Skill Councils (SSCs), Assessing agencies and Training Partners are already in place for implementation of the scheme.

Most of these shivirs also had Classrooms cum labs set up within the venue to enable visitors to witness the format of the training.
