Govt to make it mandatory for education systems to follow NSQF norms: Minister
The government is planning to bring out a new policy, making it mandatory for all education systems to follow National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSFQ) norms.
NSQF alignment is the need of the hour and the government is contemplating steps in this direction, said Anant kumar Hegde, Minister of State for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, while inaugurating an Assocham Summit-cum-Awards on Skilling India. He added, government’s policy decision on District Skill Development Agency (DSDA) is likely to be implemented in one or two months. “We came up with the idea of DSDA because merely making policies sitting here in Delhi was not the feasible solution and even the State governments have limited reach,” said Hegde.
There is a need to get feedback from industrial houses on issues like usage of next generation functional language, precision farming, using microbial science and others for drafting policies as government cannot reach every nook and corner, he said.
