Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) is going to organise a meeting on January 12, 2018, and the representatives of AISU will submit their proposals to the ministry during the meeting. The meeting is scheduled to take place at Pune.

President of AISU Vice Chancellor of BSDU (Bharatiya Skill Development University) prepared the recommendations after holding consultations with the representatives and VCs of seven skill universities across the country. He claimed that the University Grants Commission did not prescribe norms for skill universities. Therefore, AISU decided to submit its proposal detailing recommendations and suggestions on norms for skill universities, he added.
