Arunachal collaborates with Union Ministry of Education to boost education initiatives

Arunachal Pradesh took a significant stride towards enhancing its education sector as the state government recently signed two crucial Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with the Union Ministry of Education. The MoUs aim to implement two flagship initiatives – the Pradhan Mantri Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (PM-USHA) for higher education and the Pradhan Mantri e-Vidya (PM e-Vidya) for school education.

The signing ceremony took place during the Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam 2023 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, coinciding with the third anniversary of the National Education Policy 2020. The event was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

State Education Commissioner, Amjad Tak, signed the MoUs in the presence of Union Ministers of State for Education – Subhas Sarkar, Annapurna Devi, and Rajkumar Ranjan Singh.

The first MoU is focused on the implementation of PM-USHA, which aims to bridge gaps in the higher education sector, enhance equity, access, and inclusion, improve teaching-learning processes, accreditation of higher educational institutions, create ICT-based digital infrastructure, and boost employability through a multi-disciplinary approach.

This collaborative effort between Arunachal Pradesh and the Union Ministry of Education marks a significant milestone in fostering quality education in the region and empowering students for a brighter future.
