National Skills Registry (NSR) is an initiative taken by NASSCOM. NASSCOM is the trade association of all the IT / ITeS / BPO companies in India. NASSCOM wants to promote the interests of IT & ITeS industry and help it grow. NASSCOM has taken up a significant initiative called "Trusted Sourcing". This initiative aims to develop and project the industry as a Safe and Trusted destination for sourcing, development, outsourcing and process work so that overseas clients develop confidence with the safety of our industry and assign more work.

One of the important attributes of the Trust and Safety environment is robust and credible information about industry employees. This is not available today, every company needs to collect information about employees, use its practices to get such information verified and than present to clients. This process is both costly and inefficient and also does not reflect upon trust environment in good light.

NASSCOM, at the request of its member companies, has taken up the initiative to develop a robust information infrastructure about all present and prospective employees of the industry called "National Skills Registry (NSR)". NSR facilitates development of Fact Sheet of Credible, Permanent and Accessible information about each registered person. This information can be accessed and used by the industry and its clients with the authorization of such registered person.

Any individual either employed / unemployed / student can get themselves registered on the NSR system and also get their profiles background checked
