Universities should make education available from KG to PG: Khattar

Chandigarh, May 14 (UNI) To ensure quality education is provided under one-roof, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said that all the Universities of the State should make education available from KG (Kindergarten) to PG (Post Graduation) under the New Education Policy (NEP). He said that the fees of poor children studying in these universities would be paid by the government and added that a new scheme will be introduced for this very soon. Addressing a two-day Conference of Vice Chancellors of Universities here on Saturday, the Chief Minister said that a new scheme would soon be introduced to provide education to the children of those families whose verified annual income is less than Rs 1.80 lakh in the Parivar Pehchan Patra. Under this scheme, the fees of the children of poor families will be paid by the government so that the financial burden on the Universities does not increase and the poor children can also get access to higher education. He said that employment-oriented programs should be formulated in the Universities and Computer Education should be made compulsory so that in the present era of technology every youth is proficient in computers. The youth should be imparted employment- oriented education so that they get jobs after completing education. Apart from this, youth can also be groomed for self-employment, he added. He said that Technical Education and Higher Education Departments would be merged to impart quality education to the youth. This will also reduce the unnecessary burden on the government and the youth will be able to get quality technical and higher level education. He also directed the officers concerned to promote Hindi in LLB, Engineering courses etc and to connect Engineering students with government departments under Amrit Sarovar Yojana. Khattar said that emphasis should be placed on making the Universities of the state financially robust and self-sufficient so that they do not depend on government grants. He said that the government hires agencies from outside for the work of consultants, surveys etc. In future such work will be given to universities. This will enhance the income of the university and make them financially strong as well. He said that under the New Education Policy, four Universities including MDU Rohtak, Kurukshetra University, Mahila Vishwavidyalaya Khanpur have started providing education from KG-level to PG under one roof. The remaining universities of the state should also work at a fast pace to provide education on the same pattern so that every youth of the state has access to higher education easily under one roof. He said that various alumni meets should be organized every year in the Universities. Special attention should be given to each alumnus and the alumni who are capable should be invited to these conferences and their help should be taken. Apart from this, the Annual Convocation must also be held in a fixed period. In the Convocation Ceremony, the old practice of the Britishers of following a particular dress code should also be changed at regular intervals. The Chief Minister said that special programs should be organized on the birth anniversary and death anniversary of renowned personalities on whose name the universities were christened, to introduce the youth to the life history of these great people. He said that great men have always guided the country and the society. Therefore, it becomes our moral obligation to make the younger generation aware about their history. UNI DB SHK2101
