These 8 points were developed from the research into the current state of affairs in India, coupled with good practice indicators from the six country reports and literature reviews. There are no central repositories for information. NOS are critical to be able to develop quality levels and qualification benchmarks.

Not enough widespread emphasis on benefits of achieving qualifications and undertaking training. This applies to employers also. As per point 3, there are overlapping responsibilities and projects; combining effort and resources could make more possible. Along with point 1, clearer remit for agencies and more transparent reporting would enable more impact and effectiveness. MES is an important scheme that may help to solve the unorganised sector problem; employers should promote modular skills.
