Description

Government is planning a Central scheme to increase higher education enrollment in the country.

The proposed Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) is aimed at increasing enrolment in the higher education institutions to 30 per cent by 2020 as against the present 12.4 per cent.

The government intends to subsume the current scheme of setting up model degree colleges in 374 educationally backward districts of the country.

The RUSA aims to expand the institutional base of higher education by creating additional capacity in existing institutions, establishing new institutions and incentivising State governments.

The programme will be funded in the ratio of 75:25, with the Centre putting up three-fourths of the cost. For special category States, the funding ratio will be 90:10.
