New Delhi [India], Sept.19 (ANI-Businesswire India): NIIT.tv - a disruptive innovation by NIIT, has won the prestigious award for educational technology, at the Indo-American Education Summit 2016.

Speaking on occasion Udai Singh, Head, New Business Initiatives, NIIT Ltd said, "This award is an acknowledgment of our commitment to offer job-focused skills training to the large under-skilled population of India, with an aim to create a globally competitive workforce for the emerging Indian economy. I wholeheartedly thank Indo-American Education Summit for this encouragement and recognition."
