More than 1,200 competitors from over 70 countries will compete across 50 skills at this biennial competition, the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) said in a statement.

Meher took part in “India Skills 2016” where she was declared the winner in IT Software Solutions for Business. Amongst 300 participants, she was the only female to qualify for the finale.
