Witnessing a great revolution in the education system in the past few decades, the government of India has taken a number of initiatives to boost education in India. The development in the terms of education has been strived to be balanced in terms of regional growth along with maintaining the level of education as widely acceptable. A number of new institutes of education have been sanctioned under the government lately; most of which are concerned with imparting education at higher levels.
Primary education too has been taken care of by the government. A number of government initiatives such as the ‘Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan’ program set up by the government managed to send millions of children to school. In a country like India which has a large number of young and education-needing population, such a government initiative proved out to be greatly rewarding in the long run. Government institutes are seldom correlated to poor educational and infrastructural policies, yet the government is trying to break this belief by sanctioning money for the setting up of schools of the ‘Kendriya Vidyalaya’ quality. There has been a proposal that was passed which included setting up of 6000 new model schools that will be similar to KV in terms of standards and policies. The centre will bear almost 75% of expenses that will be incurred to set up these institutes.
Further, the latest ‘Make in India’ campaign launched under the visionary guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is bound to benefit the system of education in a long run. The Make in India campaign will try to boost research and development of sciences as well as production techniques under guidelines of making them staple to India. Unearthing of Indian talent for creating more job opportunities and educational opportunities will remain as the basic goals of this campaign. A number of budgets have been approved and a number of schemes have been passed that indicate the government’s concern for improving the education system in India. Proper monitoring and accountability will definitely give India a leap in terms of performance and output. Government initiatives promise to open the doors of schools and universities to millions of students who dream big and carry the weight of India’s future on their shoulders.
The government also recently gave a nod to the much delayed ‘Education loan guarantee fund’ that providing surety to banks against loans given to students for their higher education. The HRD ministry spends nearly Rs.1,000 crore every year for providing interest relief to students whose annual family income is less than Rs.6 lakhs.

Such government initiatives provide education security to students who want to pursue higher education but cannot take it up due to the want of money.
The government has been seen to be working both in the fields of primary as well as higher education. A number of reforms, new policies and schemes have been developed to maintain the level of education as being globally acceptable. We have been able to bridge the gap between the millions of students and their schools. Government initiatives will definitely make India more self-sufficient and developed in terms of education.
