The University Grants Commission (UGC) has issued the Draft Guidelines for the introduction of courses based on Indian heritage and culture.
With a view to make people familiar with the rich cultural and intellectual heritage of India in the backdrop of a comprehensive perspective of National Education Policy-2020 and on the occasion of the celebration of Amrit Mahotsava of Indian Independence, an initiative namely “Let’s know India” (Aao Bharat ko Jane) has been launched.
The instant scheme has been conceived by the UGC to realign acquaintances from various countries worldwide with this Indian Knowledge system and cultural heritage.
There will be short term multi-tier credit based modular programme with multiple entry and exit based on Indian heritage and culture to promote the interest of people from abroad to visit India. Based on the degree of learning outcomes and the rigour of the curricular structure of relevant disciplines, the course can be offered at three distinct levels:
- Introductory level
- Intermediate level, and
- Advanced level.
