Government to start National Higher Education Campaign (Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyan)
The Union Government has decided to launch National Higher Education Campaign (Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyan), to focus on equity based development, improvement in teaching-learning quality and research. Under this programme, funds will be granted to public Universities and Colleges so that higher educational institutes do not depend heavily on the affiliation fees.
The programme will encourage the Universities to give more emphasis on life-skill development activities which would ultimately aid in employment generation.
