India, the brave new face of transforming education

The Indian education system has witnessed a significant growth under Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), a centrally sponsored scheme, launched by the Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD) , which primarily aims at transforming education system in India by providing quality education.

With an objective to uplift and give impetus to education system, HRD Ministry has initiated several projects, which are first of its kind. Promotion and welfare of education being the major drive, HRD Ministry is striving to meet most of the requirements, starting from grass root level to higher education.


As a part of reforming education system in India, formulation of new education policy has drawn attention to a greater extent. The committee, constituted by HRD Ministry has recently submitted its reports on evolution of policy, wherein it recommended to reinstate dentition of students after class v and set up all-India cadre of educational services on the lines of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS).
