March 20, 2013

HRD Minister M Pallam Raju during a meeting with IIM directors spoke about doing away with diploma courses and giving post-graduate degrees.

 

A statement made by the previous Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal has been reiterated by the present Minister for human resource and development M Pallam Raju.

 

Sibal had announced this decision in Lucknow in the presence of various media sources in 2012 during a meeting of IIM directors saying "At present, IIMs give post-graduate diplomas. But we want them to give degrees".

 

M Pallam Raju spoke to the media present over issues relating to education in India and also touched upon the proposal to do away with diploma courses in IIMs and start giving post-graduate degrees. According to the minister the move from diplomas to degrees is in progress and a meeting with all the IIMs directors is scheduled on March 19 in order to reach a consensus.

 

He also spoke about the RUSA scheme launched in the 12th Five Year Plan which has a budgetary allocation of Rs 25,000 crores from the central government. M Pallam Raju stated that they want state governments to increase their involvement as they are better versed with the hurdles being faced by the universities.

 

He also spoke about the need to curb the recent rise of Colleges which do not meet the standards of higher education. A bill on mandatory accreditation is currently under consideration where institutions will have to maintain ties and standards according to the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is also a part of this initiative.
