CBSE has launched a project called 'UDAAN' to address the teaching gap between school education and engineering entrance. 'UDAAN' will also enrich the teaching and learning of Science and Mathematics at School level. This project will provide free online resources to girl students of Class XI and Class XII for preparation of admission test for the premier engineering colleges like IITs and NITs. Objective of the project is to enable girl students to soar to higher education from schools.
Project 'UDAAN' will specially focus on increasing the number of enrolment of girl students in the engineering entrance exams like JEE MAIN & Advanced conducted for the admission in prestigious institutions. It will also enable the girl students to receive special incentives and support so that they can join these institutions. Special incentives and support will be provided 1000 selected disadvantaged girls per year. The Project also aims at enriching and enhancing the teaching and learning of Science and Mathematics at Senior Secondary level by providing free and online resources to everyone.
