Ministry Of Human Resource Development

Human Resource Development! The essence of Human Resource Development is education, which plays a significant and remedial role in balancing the socio-economic fabric of the Country.

This warrants an all-round development of our citizens, which can be achieved by building strong foundations in education. In pursuance of this mission, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) was created on September 26, 1985, through the 174th amendment to the Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules, 1961.

Currently, the MHRD works through two departments i.e. Department of School Education & Literacy and Department of Higher Education.
