About Us

NEP 2020 emphasizes the creation of motivated, energized, and capable faculty. The Capacity building of teachers at all levels has been one of the major thrust areas in the field of higher education. Existing mechanisms for capacity building of faculty, i.e. UGC-HRDCs and PMMMNMTT centers have contributed immensely towards training faculty of Higher Education Institutions to provide more effective teaching. However, continuous rofessional development of faculty in all disciplines is required in light of new and updated methods of pedagogy. Thus Malaviya Mission is proposed by restructuring/reframing of the existing Scheme/Mechanism of the Capacity Building/Training of Teacher/Faculty in D/o Higher Education. The Mission envisages Capacity-building training for the faculty and staff across higher educational institutions, in the light of NEP 2020 within two years through multiple training centers. Theoutcome of this capacity- building training will be the metamorphosis of higher education in terms of Indian values, teaching, research, publication, patents, and institutional development


National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 presents a watershed moment in the Indian Education Policy ecosystem. Redesigning the higher education ecosystem as envisaged by NEP 2020 requires strengthening the role of the faculty. NEP 2020 also envisions that pedagogy becomes learner-centered with mechanism for continuous comprehensive evaluation and assessment of learners.

Capacity building of faculty across all levels of higher education is one of the foremost thrust areas, with diverse schemes/programmes geared towards it. University Grants Commission’s Human Resource Development Centres (HRDCs) cater to the country's non-technical Higher Education Institutions (HEI) working in various HEIs. These HRDCs conduct continuous Professional Development Programmes (CPDP) mainly in faculty induction, pedagogy, domain knowledge, and leadership. The thrust areas for these CPDPs are dynamic and identified by UGC in tune with NEP 2020. The Central Sector Scheme “Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching (PMMMNMTT) was launched in 2014 by Honorable Prime Minister. The scheme aimed to comprehensively address all issues related to Teacher Training/ Capacity Building and the Professional Development of Faculty. Under the Scheme, existing HEIs in CUs, IITs, State Universities, NITTTR, IISERs, NITs, Deemed Universities, and Centrally Funded HEI have been provided funds for carrying out Capacity Building training of faculty members of HEIs, by utilizing and leveraging existing resources.

The Ministry of Education has sought that synergy and integration between HRDCs and PMMMNMTT Centres be strengthened in order to meet the objective of NEP 2020, keeping in view the optimal utilization of infrastructure, human and financial resources and the entire Capacity Building efforts should be renamed and popularized as Malaviya Mission.

110 institutions have been identified as a part of Malaviya Mission.
