While network connectivity might be a significant issue, lack of unemployment pips any other issue experienced by the countrymen. Thus, at the Future Decoded event in Mumbai, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella declared the release of an initiative ‘Project Sangam’ that’ll help in skill and expertise development of individuals, while also making the work of job queries easier for them. It is currently being flagged off with Andhra Pradesh.

Under this effort, Microsoft is looking to achieve two apparently connected purposes. It is designed to offer a learning platform that will not only help the Indian population get training but also court job possibilities through their professional social network, i.e. LinkedIn. It is mainly targeted at connecting the wide expertise and employment gap in the nation.
