Union Minister for HRD Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal “Nishank” has launched a web-portalYUKTI (Young India Combating COVID with Knowledge, Technology and Innovation) .
It’s a unique portal and dashboard to monitor and record the efforts and initiatives of MHRD.
The portal intends to cover the different dimensions of COVID-19 challenges in a very holistic and comprehensive way.
In the wake of COVID-19 threat, our primary aim is to keep our academic community healthy, both physically & mentally and to enable a continuous high-quality learning environment for learners.
The portal is an effort of HRD Ministry to achieve this goal in these difficult times.
It will cover the various initiatives and efforts of the institutions in academics, research especially related to CoVID, social initiatives by institutions and the measures taken for the betterment of the total wellbeing of the students.
The portal will cover both qualitative and quantitative parameters for effective delivery of services to the academic community at large.
The portal will also allow various institutions to share their strategies for various challenges which are there because of the unprecedented situation of COVID-19 and other future initiatives.
The portal will also establish a two-way communication channel between the Ministry of HRD and the institutions so that the Ministry can provide the necessary support system to the institutions.
