Praesent sit amet lorem vitae massa hendrerit auctor

Today, while presenting the Union Budget and its implications for the upgradation and enhancement of the education    sector, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley laid emphasis on how quality education can energise the youth of today.                Quoting Swami Vivekananda, Jaitley said that education helps the masses by equipping them for the struggle of life.

He further stated that the focus will be on 3,479 educationally backward blocks. Higher education will witness the       undertaking of reforms in the UGC, which would enable good quality institutions to have greater administration and     academic autonomy.

Colleges will be identified and given autonomous status based on accreditation and ranking. A revised framework        will be put in place for outcome-based accreditation and a credit-based programme. The proposal has been made to      leverage information technology with the launch of the SWAYAM platform with at least 350 online courses.
