In India, the State Governments identify the relevant skills and conduct the district and zonal competitions in each state to select the best skilled person from their respective states. The state champions are called for regional competitions where they show their skills. After the regional competitions, the top scorer makes it to the IndiaSkills Competitions i.e National Competitions.
