The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) asked the students to use books written by Indian authors under PM’s Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission. Hence, the country’s main body for technical education has requested all the engineering, management, and other institutions to promote books written by Indian authors in their institutions.
The letter to all the heads of major institutions had been sent by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on Friday, 5th February 2021.
AICTE’s motive to fulfill the aim of the Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission:
The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) had always been working to give priority to Indian authors. Hence, it had launched a model curriculum in 2018 which included books written by Indian authors. However, all the institutions got access to the list in 2019.
The Council’s letter issued on 5th February says that high-quality books will be provided at cost-effective prices to students. Hence, this will also assist the students in learning all concepts in a better way. However, this scheme will also fulfill the aim of the Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission hand in hand.
The Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission aims to make India a self-reliant nation. Hence, this concept was launched by PM Narendra Modi when the pandemic started. The AICTE believes that promotion and large scale usage of books written by Indian authors will be beneficial. Hence, it will be a big stride towards making India a Self-sufficient Nation. Also, it will globally promote Indian authors.
Colleges admit books by Indian authors and assist the Atmanirbhar Bharat Mission:
The college professors hold the view that the content is what matters in any book. Hence, they have no issue in using books written by Indian authors. A lot of colleges even consider that Indian books are cost-effective which the students can afford.
