Govt. proposes National Testing Agency for Entrance Examinations for Higher Education Institutions
New Delhi, February 1, 2017
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said the Government proposed to establish a National Testing Agency as an autonomous and self-sustaining premier testing organization to conduct all entrance examinations for higher education institutions in the country.
Presidenting the General Budget for 2017-18 in Parliament, he said this would free the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and other premier institutions from these administrative responsibilities so that they can focus more on academics.
