New Delhi: In an indication of a shake-up in the skill development ministry, Dilip Chenoy, managing director and chief executive of National Skill Development Corp. (NSDC), has resigned from his post, said at least three persons aware of the development on Friday.

The NSDC board and the ministry are yet to take a call on the resignation, they said.

NSDC, created by the previous United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government as a public-private-partnership to train about 150 million people, was made part of the new skills ministry and is a key player in the Skill India mission.

Chenoy has been heading the body since May 2010. He did not respond to phone calls or a text message.
