New Delhi, Jan 1 (PTI) As it treaded the path of reforms, the HRD Ministry came under attack from IITs for adopting a new single entrance test and also grappled with the cartoon row in NCERT books in 2012, during which it also failed to get key legislations passed in Parliament.

SC seeks reply from HRD min on pvt coaching centres

New Delhi, Feb 10 (PTI) Supreme Court has sought a reply from the government about private coaching institutes which are mushrooming in the country in an unregulated manner amidst allegations that some of them were fleecing students.

"Yes... SC has sought a reply from the ministry," Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Shashi Tharoor, told Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

All such institutes are in the private sector and have no linkages with the government, Tharoor said in the statement.

Mulling increasing spending on higher education: HRD Min
New Delhi, May 27 (PTI) HRD Minister Smriti Irani said today that the government was mulling increasing the spending on higher education to six per cent of the GDP and will also have a relook at the legislations on higher education which lapsed with the end of previous Lok Sabha.

The minister said that the lapsed legislations on higher education are being studied for their possible introduction afresh.

It is a good news that budget allocation on higher education is being increased.
It should not be less than 6% of GDP

HRD Ministry saw several controversies in 2014


New Delhi: Controversy hogged the HRD Ministry ever since the NDA government came to power be it for the rollback of FYUP of Delhi University, replacing Sanskrit with German as the third language in Kendriya Vidyalayas or asking institutes to observe events on Christmas.


As these moves led Opposition parties to accuse the Ministry of embarking on a path to saffronise education, its Minister Smriti Irani retorted saying, if she "challenges status quo," controversy is bound to take wings.

"Those who accuse me of being a RSS mascot or RSS representative possibly want to deflect the attention from the good work that we have done... This agenda will be flagged.

"I will be whipped for as long as there is a need to keep attention diverted away from the good work. I am ready for it. I have no problem," she told PTI in an interview.

Irani announced a slew of programmes promoting girls education, providing free access to digital content, scholarship schemes and special focus on northeast students, but the row mostly generating off-campus shrouded such initiatives.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to students on Teacher's Day in September also generated a lot of heat especially from the Opposition amid reports of compulsory attendance in classes to listen to him.

Irani's education qualification too made headlines soon after she assumed charge in May. It took a new turn when she said at a function that she also has a degree from the prestigious Yale University in the US, a statement which she later said was "misconstrued".

Under pressure from UGC to act on its directive, Delhi University on June 27 scrapped its controversial four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) and reverted back to the previous three-year structure.

Hardening its stand, UGC days earlier asked Delhi University and its colleges to admit students only under the three-year programme and not FYUP, a move hailed by both teachers' and students' bodies who made several representations to Irani in this regard.
