About the scheme

AICTE/MHRD has devised a new scheme called “Margadarshak”.

In this scheme Mentors (Margadarshaks) are identified for institutions which are yet to get NBA accreditation.

These Margadarshaks shall function from prestigious institutes identified as Nodal centers/Mentor Institutes.


The Scheme envisages that every Mentor Institution will have a few Education Experts/Mentors/Guides (called ‘Margdarshaks’), housed in Mentor Institution, who will guide/mentor few Institutes, located near their place of residence/institutes, to improve the
required quality parameters in the institutes to enable them to apply for NBA accreditation of their programmes.

The Margadarshaks would assist in training the teachers, Outcome-Based Education (OBE), improving the pedagogy, focus on technical skill, life skills, Innovation and creating capacity and capacity to solve problems among students, developing better teaching-learning, and assessment including Laboratory or practicals.

Co-curricular and extracurricular components also be an integral part of the responsibility of Margadarshaks.
