HRD Ministry Constitutes National Testing Agency

The HRD Ministry has decided to set up a seven member Task Force under the Chairmanship of Prof. Sanjay Dhande, Ex-Director, IIT. It will have the representatives from CBSE, UGC, NCERT, AICTE and from the Ministry. It will prepare a blue print for creating a special purpose vehicle to take the concept of National Testing Agency (NTA) forward. The rationale for setting up the NTA lies in ensuring that multiplicity of entrance examination leading to stress on the students is addressed in a comprehensive manner by formulating a uniform entrance examination for admissions in different branches of higher learning.

The decision for setting up the National Testing Agency was taken in the meeting of Central Advisory Board for Education (CABE) which was held on 2nd April this year. In the meeting it was decided that the proposal to set up National Testing Agency shall be taken forward in consultation with all stakeholders.
