After cow, Geeta and gayatri mantra, BJP govt in Haryana all set to saffronise higher education
Manohar Lal Khattar-led Haryana government is all set to saffronise higher education in the state. To achieve this goal, committees of educationists have been hastily formed.

The excuse being given is that the syllabus is over worked and needs revision in accordance with the global scenario. The director of higher education has written to the principals of all government aided colleges about the change in syllabus. 

The government has decided to introduce choice-based credit system and revise the syllabus and workload at under-graduate level in eleven subjects which include economics, political science, psychology, maths, physics, chemistry, computer science, botany, zoology, commerce and geography. 

Committees consisting of five to six members from teaching faculties would meet at Kurukshetra and Rohtak on April 14 and April 15. 

For public consumption they would review the existing syllabi in the universities of Haryana, the neighbouring states as well as the model curriculum of the UGC to make an assessment of the workload and develop the choice-based credit system. 

Highly placed sources have told that the committee members have been chosen in a hush-hush manner with special briefing. 

When contacted, Deputy Director, Directorate of Higher Education, Hemant Verma asked me to contact the Deputy Director, Arun Joshi. However, Joshi did not responded despite repeated attempts.
