The focus of the State Government is to increase the placement of students studying in degree colleges. In addition to this emphasis is also laid on start ups and entrepreneurship among students. We have started a new project eKarma to train our students on freelancing portals and self-employment. We recognise the use of technology in education sector, hence, various ICT initiatives namely centralised real time on line admissions, mobile app for students, e-learning content in all Govt. Colleges, smart classrooms, Digital Library Portal and e-learning labs have been implemented. My Government has started 24X7 helpline Nai Disha for counselling of students. We are providing passport assistance to students of final year studying in colleges. Structured programmes for girls empowerment, environment protection, road safety, divyang students (Astavakra Kendra), Nutrition Gyan have been started. Sparsh Braille magazine for blind students and two e journals MRIDA and ACADEMIC CANVAS have also been started
