Javadekar launches mobile app RUSA


New Delhi: Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar today launched the unique portal and mobile app of Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), throwing open 17 facilities created under RUSA in one go in 14 states. The portal is a one-stop for States’ Higher Education Plans, decision of the States’ Higher Education Councils and details of the resources under this scheme. Also, the gallery is a rich repository of the projects initiated under RUSA, a body under the aegis of the HRD ministry here. Asserting that the Government’s first priority was to improve the quality of primary as well as higher education, he said 'unless we improve the quality of education we will not be able to create capable people and good citizens and therefore improvement of quality is the thrust for all our efforts in the educational fields. Today this is a unique event as well as experiment wherein we have inaugurated 17 facilities created under Rashtriya Ucchatat Shiksha Abiyan (RUSA) in one go in 14 states”. He said the Centre and State Government will be deliberating and discussing upon the modalities for bringing improvement further. Under the concept of RUSA, the quality of education can go up by improving the research labs infrastructure and creating smart class rooms and various other programmes by which the quality enhancement and value addition to the students happen, Mr Javadekar added. The Minister said ‘RUSA is a success and during the last three years, the Modi Government has increased the expenditure to the tune of Rs 2800 crore for this. He said, 'We have created infrastructure in many universities, colleges and model colleges. We have also provided Rs 1300 crore in this year’s budget. Since this is happening for the first time, we are very hopeful and excited and I am sure this scheme will be a great success towards enhancement of higher education.' Mr Javadekar also released the booklet “Digital Launch of Projects; Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA)” on the occasion. Various state Education ministers, secretaries, RUSA nodal officers from many states were also present during the programme.
