UGC says No to AMU for skill center

ALLAHABAD: Allahabad University and Aligarh Muslim University have lost out on skill development centre or Deen Dayal Upadhyay KAUSHAL (Knowledge Acquisition and Upgradation of Skilled Human Abilities and Livelihood). The proposal was rejected by the University Grants Commission (UGC) along with 642 others out of 708 proposals.

The UGC has allowed only 65 institutions to set up KAUSHAL kendras with its financial support, including seven in the state. These institutes include Banaras Hindu University and Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya in Varanasi, Dayalbagh Educational Institute (Agra), National PG College (Lucknow) and Raghunath Girls' PG College (Meerut). Private institutions selected under self-financed category are Shyamlal Saraswati Degree College (Bulandshahr) and Shree Jee Baba Institute (Mathura).

Apart from Allahabad University, several other city institutions have lost out on the skill development centre. These include Uttar Pradesh Rajarshi Tandon Open University (UPRTOU), Ewing Christian College, SS Khanna Girls' Degree College and Hamidia Girls' Degree College. In the state, proposal of Aligarh Muslim University and Deen Dayal Upadhyay University Gorakhpur was also rejected.

The UGC has also sanctioned Rs 7.40 crore each for the project.

The scheme provides mobility from short-term certificate courses to full time post-graduate degree and research programmes in specialized areas. The courses are to be meticulously planned to ensure provision of multiple entry and exit at various levels culminating up to a research degree level. These will also include courses offered under the community college scheme and BVoc degree programme of UGC.

As per plans, KAUSHAL centres are expected to formulate courses at post-graduate level keeping in mind the needs of industry in specialised areas, instructional design, curriculum design and contents in areas of skills development. They also have to come up with pedagogy, assessment for skill development education and training besides trained faculty in areas of skill development and entrepreneurship. These centres have been visualised as working for coordination between higher education system and industry to become a centre of excellence for skill development in specialised areas.
