A student enrolling into kindergarten in such institutions enjoys admission preferences as they are promoted from school education to higher education under one roof. Jamia Milia Islamia, Viswa Bharati and Banasthali universities are few such institutions.
The Chhattisgarh government had also announced plans to set up such institutions for promoting tribal education in the state. The sources said the complexes could be set up under the PPP mode on a 50:50 cost sharing basis between the government and private players investing in the education sector. The state government could also be asked to provide land free of cost.
Meanwhile, the government is also understood to have been planning to raise the education cess to two per cent from one per cent at present, mopping up some Rs 14,000 crore annually to fund the expanding education sector and funding the new IITs and IIMs.
