Credit transfer system starting on 11 November

India will start a credit transfer system on 11 November, observed as the National Education Day. The credit equivalent framework will be launched from the Class 9-12 level and will extend till the PhD level in January.

Human resource development (HRD) minister Smriti Zubin Irani stated at the India Economic Summit, organized by the World Economic Forum “We do not have a credit transfer system within our country that enables the migration of labour across the country”.

The credit transfer system will help individuals who leave formal education for a job to resume studies. Universities directly under the union government have been told by the HRD ministry to adopt the credit transfer system.

Irani also hinted at collaborations with the labour ministry, which trains students for shopfloor jobs at its Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs).
