Higher education is far more accessible in India’s urban areas than in the rural parts of the country. Students from remote areas shift to metropolitans in pursuit of receiving quality higher education. Thus, the area they migrate from loses skilled and zealous individuals who could contribute to its overall development.  In such a scenario, we need institutions that bring global exposure to the local level. 

Fortunately, the AISECT Group of Universities is empowering the rural and semi-urban milieu with the power of higher education.  All five universities of the AISECT Group work towards their skill development by bringing new ideas that aid in the students’ betterment. There are various features in each university. For example, the Rabindranath Tagore University has 20 centres of Excellences – a Centre for incubation, Entrepreneurship & startups, Centre for Science & communication, Centre for advance material, a Centre for Innovation in IoT, a Centre for Renewable Energy, Centre for Agriculture, Centre for Environmental science, Centre for Literature and Culture Studies of Indian Diaspora, Centre for Language Learning, Centre for Translation, Centre for Sanskrit and Oriental Languages Studies and Indigenous Knowledge Tradition, Vanmali  Srijan Peeth and Publication, Tagore International Centre for Art and Culture, Tagore Centre for Regional Languages and Culture. Scholarships like Shiksha Mitra are given to students on a merit basis. Dr C.V Raman University, Bilaspur, provides a research-based environment and short-term skilled-based courses through the CVRU NSDC Academy. It is the only university in Chhattisgarh to provide distance education as well. Dr C.V. Raman University, Bihar, has 5 MOUs with international universities for research and education.
