This year, Delhi University took a step to launch Vidya Vistar Scheme. According to this scheme, to strengthen learning 22 colleges of DU would guide 29 colleges across the country. It involves teacher visits, skill development training, and various programs across colleges.
By analyzing the needs of our developing country, sharing and exchanging resources can work a lot in the education field. Therefore, through this initiative of DU, the Vidya Vistar Scheme led several education institutions to communicate. Moreover, the scheme is launched in keeping the belief in mind that lack of resources in most of the institutes can be fulfilled. And the only way to do this is to make institutions join hands with each other.
