The pilot project of Textile Designing and Printing addresses the key objectives of the NMEICT as it aims to provide high quality vocational education with special emphasis on skill development,
in Textile Designing and Printing,
at affordable costs with technology enabled access that will not be limited by geographical
constraints. An important aspect of the project is conversion of the lectures and practical sessions in regional languages.
The regional languages chosen for the pilot project are TAMIL and HINDI whereas the original content has been developed in English.
NMEICT is an important step of the Government of India through which the socio-economic conditions of under-priviledged people of India can be enhanced.
The Dayalbagh Educational Institute is one of the institutions
selected to achieve the objectives of the Mission. Dayalbagh Educational Institute has already taken steps in the direction by establishing infrastructure for
development and distribution of e-content.
The Dayalbagh Educational Institute is located amidst the tranquil environs of Dayalbagh, a self-contained colony renowned for its serene environment and
secular establishments, in which its inhabitants lead an active, disciplined and co-operative community life dedicated to service, conforming to the high
spiritual ideals of their Faith. On the outskirts of the historic city of Agra, the campus is situated in garden settings, away from the din and noise of
the city. Nestled between lush green fields, it provides an excellent ambience and academic setting which is in harmony with nature. This, along
with a simple, disciplined and principled life, undoubtedly contributes to the strength of the social, moral and spiritual fiber of the institute's
educational system. Click here to Know more about
