The newly elected CM of Tripura, Biplab Deb drove the concentration towards the ancient model of education that was adopted by the Nalanda University. The Tripura CM was speaking to the newsmen on Tuesday in Agartala on the need of improving the education system of the state, after inaugurating the 30-day faculty induction training programme organized by Tripura University’s Faculty Development Center. The Tripura CM said,
“The educational pattern of ancient Nalanda University must be followed to improve the quality of education. Quality of education is the need of the hour. Israel is a small nation. But due to its technical and non-technical knowledge this tiny country is well acknowledged by the entire world. Tripura might be a small state, but if we become a model in education and knowledge the other parts of the world would give us due importance.”

The ambitious scheme was launched in March 2015 by the Department of Higher Education with a whopping budget of Rs 900 crore for the 12th Plan period. The Tripura University has become the first educational institute in the entire northeastern region that has implemented the mission into its educational system. The CM further added,
“To make the Tripura University one of the best educational institutions, the state government is ready to do whatever is needed. It is keen to see the university produce best students for the welfare of the society and the country”.
The Vice-Chancellor of Tripura University Anjan Kumar Ghosh was also present during the inauguration of the induction programme. He said that in many countries scheme like this one for the teachers and teaching ethics do not exist. The Vice-Chancellor added, “To improve the quality of teaching, the new scheme would be a great instrument”. Sanit Deb, the University Registrar did speak in the function.
