The development of human resources has been given a very important place in the national policy framework, “Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour”. In fulfilling this, it was proposed to establish a radical new higher education institutional system, ‘City Universities’, with an entirely new innovative perspective to higher education. The City Universities (CUs) will also fulfill the promise stated under “A System of Higher Education to produce Technocrats” in page 22 of Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour.
With the introduction of the City Universities, those who wish to have a higher education will have the choice of going along an academic route or a more industry-oriented route. Those who are eligible for university education, irrespective of the academic stream they have followed, on passing an entrance exam, will be able to enter the City University.
