Ministry for Human Resource Development (MHRD) launched new initiatives for technical education.

The Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD) on Wednesday launched new initiatives for technical education including giving weightage to the feedback of students in evaluation of teachers and mentoring of 727 technical institutions by well-performing institutes and retired faculty to enable them to achieve accreditation.

HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank unveiled the schemes to be implemented by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).

On occasion, a model curriculum for diploma courses was also introduced. To promote women entrepreneurs in waste management, 5,000 students from technical institutions will participate and attempt a Guinness record by making recycled cloth bags as a showcase for revenue stream and to curb the menace of single-use plastic.
