The Information and Broadcasting Ministry is planning to set up a Communications University which will function as an umbrella body for the media, films and animation sectors
I&B Ministry has set a target of three years for setting up the university, sources said.
The new entity once established will standardize the education system in sectors like journalism, media, films, animations and visual effects. Right now the education in these areas is often provided by private institutions and not standardized, they said.
The institution is mooted as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision, the sources said. The Ministry is also planning several other short and medium term initiatives.
Some of the initiatives included single window clearance mechanism for film shootings in India and online certification of films, officials said.
