How to build a college for female students in India

How to make a college with your daughters, or even your own, in India is a daunting task.

You will have to plan, prepare and organise.

But you can still make it work. 

There are plenty of options out there. 

The idea of a college to be run by women, or at least by women with a focus on women’s empowerment, is not new. 

India has already had a slew of such institutions, such as the National Women University of India (NWU), the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the National Institute of Technology of India.

But what is new is the scale and scope of the scheme. 

A college for the poor It is a huge task.

The country currently has 1.3 billion people, according to the Census. 

But the government wants to make the college a reality by 2020. 

According to the Indian Institute of Development Studies, the country will need 1.9 million students by 2030 to fulfil the goal. 

At present, it’s a stretch to think about building a university of women in India. 

However, the idea is still alive. 

Earlier this year, a proposal was floated to establish a college of female students to be a focal point of education for the country. 

“I think this is a very bold and brave move to make,” said Shashank Bhattacharya, the former president of the International Federation of the Indian Women Teachers Association (IFAWA).

“There is a need for more women in leadership positions in the government and in the educational system.

This idea has been floated and it has taken off.” 

The concept has received support from a variety of quarters, including the International Business Times (IBT), a leading media organisation in India, and The Times of India, a Hindi-language daily newspaper owned by the government of India that also publishes the Indian Express. 

Currently, the government does not have a plan to set up the college, although the IITs and IIT Delhi have opened women-only academies and schools. 

This has led to some controversy in India where the women-oriented and progressive Left parties are fighting to retain their seats in the Parliament and the state legislatures. 

In a letter sent to the Prime Minister on August 7, 2017, the IFAWA wrote: “We are deeply disappointed that the government has decided to allow the establishment of a new college for females, rather than focusing on developing and strengthening the women’s institutions. 

We hope that this decision is not in the interests of the students, teachers, and administrators who have been entrusted with educating the students. 

It may even lead to the establishment and maintenance of the wrong gender-neutral institution, which may have detrimental effects on women students and their ability to participate in higher education.” 

“In this regard, we strongly urge the government to immediately remove the exclusion criteria that it has put in place for women-specific colleges. 

If this is indeed the case, the new college should be designed in a manner that ensures that the student is not discriminated against on the basis of gender,” the letter continued.

While there are already several women-led colleges and universities across the country, they often do not offer a degree in business or entrepreneurship, or offer a full range of training and support. 

They also often lack resources, including scholarships, mentors, and facilities to support students who are struggling to get a foothold in higher learning. 

So, the Indian government is seeking to create a new school that is open to all genders. 

To make this happen, the Prime Ministers office is working on creating an institution that is designed to support women students from the earliest stages of their educational journey, including from a young age, said Shubhir Pandey, a spokesperson for the PMO. 

As of now, the National Council of Women is involved in the planning and execution of the project, he added. 

With the launch of the college in April this year , it was the first time a government institution was set up to support and empower women in its efforts to increase women’s participation in the labour force. 

‘It is important to start now’ The first step is to establish the college.

The Prime Minister will appoint a chairperson, a vice chairperson and a director, among others, according the plan. 

One person, or a team of people, will be responsible for selecting the students to start the school, said Bhattahary, who is also the president of IIT-Delhi. 

Another person will be appointed to oversee the educational programmes. 

Once the first year of the school is completed
