The Himachal Pradesh government 08 June 2018 decided to do away with semester system in under-graduate courses and revert to annual examination system. We had set up a review committee headed by former vice chancellor to review RUSA (Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan) and it has recommended reverting back to annual examination system.
The RUSA was introduced in the state in 2013 and the BJP had assured to restore annual examination system in under graduate course at it was not suitable for hilly state like Himachal Pradesh with difficult topography and demographic variations.
Asserting that the thrust of the government was on qualitative improvement in education, Bharadwaj said that a decision has also been taken to start nursery classes in 3,000 schools from this year. And all these schools would be equipped with library, he said, adding vocational courses would be started in 23 more schools bringing the number of schools offering vocational education to 43.
All 312 left out schools in the state would be provided electricity while language labs would be made functional in 26 places while Rs 90 lakh have been allocated for infrastructure development of school in remote Bharari area of Mand
