RUSA

Introduction

The 12th Plan proposed a holistic plan for the development of higher education in the country by ensuring access, equity and quality. The Plan, which recommended strategic utilization of central funds to ensure comprehensive planning at the State level recommended a new Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS) "Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA)".

RUSA would be spread over the 12th and 13th Plan period for funding the State universities and colleges to achieve equity, access and excellence in higher education. The allocation of funds under RUSA would be based on well‚Äźdefined norms and linked to certain key academic, administrative and governance reforms in the State higher education system which currently enrols over 96% of the students. The Scheme will be implemented through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) with matching contributions from the State governments and Union Territories (UTs).
