“We believe technology can empower every Indian...Project Sangam is an important step in in helping play a role in bringing the power of Microsoft technology to accelerate the ‘Skill India’ mission,” Anil Bhansali, managing director, Microsoft India (R&D) Private Limited and corporate vice-president, Cloud & Enterprise, said in a statement.
