Ease of Governance and ease of doing business has been the motto of the present government. To action, our moto, PRABANDH system was launched last year to help conduct the PAB meetings to approve annual plans of states under the Samagra Shiksha scheme. (1/5) It has enabled states to upload plans and everyone to view and appraise it from remote/own locations with automatic compilation by the system, resulting in consolidated recommendations and cost sheets.

The new regulatory system envisioned by #NEP will foster an overall culture of empowerment and autonomy to innovate, by gradually phasing out the system of ‘affiliated colleges’ over a period of 15 years through a system of graded autonomy.
#NEPTransformingIndia Each existing affiliating university will be responsible for mentoring its affiliated colleges so that they can achieve minimum benchmarks in academic & curricular matters; teaching & assessment; governance reforms; financial robustness; & administrative efficiency.
