Experts from global universities like Edinburgh, MIT and Cambridge have been roped in to design syllabi of higher education institutions in the country.
Speaking at an event, the human resource development (HRD) minister Smriti Irani said that this has been done to internationalise the curriculum.
“The government of India has been in touch with some international faculty and academicians and institutions who shall help states internationalise their curriculum in order to benefit their students,” she told PTI.
Further, HRD ministry has asked institutions to provide counsellors to students to deal with the stress.
Irani also launched various projects including inauguration of a Model Degree College in Kurnool of Andhra Pradesh, Rajnandgaon in Chattisgarh.
