"Efforts are being made for establishment of national-level educational institutions IIM, IIT, IISER, IIIT, NIT, Central University, Petroleum University, Agricultural University, National Institute of Disaster Management and Tribal University before the start of the next academic year," according to the State Budget presented in the Assembly today.

"It is planned to develop the state not only into a knowledge society but also a destination for a broad-spectrum of skills across the country and world. Skill development, research, consultancy and world-class collaborations will be encouraged in a systematic way."

Efforts have also been initiated to set up a State Assessment and Accreditation Council for enhancing quality of higher education. "To boost research in thrust areas, AP State Research Board is being established," the Budget added.

The Budget has proposed a provision of Rs 3,049 crore for higher education.
