SIB will be responsible for generating high employment rates through skilling, with focus on women work forces. SIBs are performance based financial instruments where each financial contribution will be evaluated against performance benchmarks by all private investors associated.

NSDC has taken the initial onus of skilling, employing and job retention of work forces whereas the British Asian Trust is working on mobilizing funds from various parties which could take upto 1-2 months.
