The Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) is planning to recommend the central government to set up an exclusive university for women in each state. According to CABE, a separate university for girls in each state will play a predominant role in encouraging and boosting education for girls in the country.
Apart from separate universities for girls, the CABE will also recommend the centre to establish women residential degree colleges in every district across the country. CABE has prepared an interim report, which will be submitted to the central government on January 15, 2018. Currently, there are 864 universities in India. Among them, 15 women universities are prevalent in 11 states.
CABE is the supreme advisory body to central and state governments in the education sector. Union HRD Minister, Mr. Prakash Javadekar will preside over the 65th CABE meeting scheduled on January 15 and January 16, 2018, at New Delhi. During this meeting, CABE will submit its interim report.
Similarly, the advisory will urge the central government to provide free education to women in the country from KG to PG level. A decision in this regard was taken in a meeting that took place on January 10, 2018, at Hyderabad. Officials from HRD Ministry, education ministers from Telangana, Assam and Jharkhand attended the meeting. Discussions took place on CABE’s recommendations to central government.
Some of the issues that CABE will take up in the 65th meeting are: -
