Work­ing to­wards ed­u­cat­ing classes and masses is al­ways an ac­tiv­ity full of hon­our. This task be­comes all the more note­wor­thy and full of hu­mil­ity if it is done not for rak­ing in money and mo­tive for one­self but for pro­vid­ing high qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion at cost-ef­fec­tive rates. Such work takes on the role of no­ble work, in a sense. This is the case with the Ra­jeev Gandhi Com­puter Sak­sharta Mis­sion. The pri­mary aim of this or­gan­i­sa­tion is to of­fer higher tech­ni­cal ed­u­ca­tion at rea­son­able costs all across the length and breadth of the coun­try (22 states, to be pre­cise at the present mo­ment) in ru­ral as well as ur­ban ar­eas. The mis­sion is run by the Shri Ra­jeev Gandhi Com­puter Sak­sharta So­ci­ety. As per Dr. K.P. Singh, chair­man of the Mis­sion, this So­ci­ety is cer­ti­fied by ISO 9001: 2008. It is also con­nected with and has tie-ups and col­lab­o­ra­tions with a num­ber of or­gan­i­sa­tions. Some of th­ese are the UP Elec­tronic Cor­po­ra­tion Ltd. (UPLC), Plan­ning Com­mis­sion of Govt. of In­dia, Na­tional Skill De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion of Govt. of In­dia, New Delhi, Na­tional Skill De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (NSDA), Govt. of In­dia., New Delhi, Re­tail­ers As­so­ci­a­tion Skill Coun­cil of In­dia (RASCI), Mum­bai, Tele­com Sec­tor Skill Coun­cil of In­dia, New Delhi, Na­tional Dig­i­tal Lit­er­ary Mis­sion, Tata Con­sul­tancy Ser­vices, West Ben­gal State Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Agency , Ra­jasthan Skill & Liveli­hoods De­vel­op­ment Cor­pora-tion(RSLDC), Ut­tar Pradesh Skill De­vel­op­ment Mis­sion(UPSDM), Ut­tarak­hand Skill De­vel­op­ment Mis­sion (UKSDM), Bi­har Skill De­vel­op­ment Mis­sion (BSDM), Paschim Banga So­ci­ety for Skill De­vel­op­ment (PBSSD), Maulana Azad Na­tional Academy for skills(MANAS), an au­tonomous or­ga­ni­za­tion of Na­tional Mi­nori­ties De­vel­op­ment & Fi­nance Cor­po­ra­tion, Min­istry of Mi­nor­ity Af­fairs, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia, etc. The train­ing which is pro­vided by the So­ci­ety is in soft­ware, hard­ware and net­work­ing, ac­counts, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and ITES, skill de­vel­op­ment and other

re­lated are­nas. This So­ci­ety has been func­tion­ing since the past twenty two years and has about 2500 Au­tho­rized Study Cen­ters (ASCs). This or­ga­ni­za­tion ad­heres to the motto of ‘In­for­ma­tion & Tech­nol­ogy for all’ slo­gan of the gov­ern­ment of In­dia for hon­ing the skill base of about 22 lakh peo­ple re­quired in IT field and of more than ten lakh skilled em­ploy­ees needed as an­cil­lary work­ers in in­dus­tries and small scale units of the coun­try. Ac­tu­ally speak­ing, pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions too of­fer cour­ses in com­put­ers but th­ese are at very high rates. Thus, they are out of reach of the mid­dle and lower class so­ci­eties of our coun­try. This Mis­sion, on the other hand, pro­vides value for money and a good base in com­put­ers and re­lated fields to stu­dents from all sec­tions of our so­ci­ety. In­ci­den­tally, this so­ci­ety is very aptly named af­ter our late Prime Min­is­ter, Mr. Ra­jiv Gandhi, who her­alded the in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy revo­lu­tion in the coun­try. Some of the cour­ses of­fered by this mis­sion in­clude Ad­vanced Diploma in Com­puter Ap­pli­ca­tion, Diploma in Com­puter Ap­pli­ca­tion, Diploma in Of­fice Au­to­ma­tion & Pub­lish­ing, Ad­vanced Diploma in Com­puter Pro­gram­ming, Cer­tifi­cate course in Desk Top Pub­lish­ing, Cer­tifi­cate course in Com­puter Ac­count­ing, post grad­u­ate diploma in Com­puter Ap­pli­ca­tion, Diploma in Com­puter ap­pli­ca­tion and de­sign­ing, diploma in com­puter ap­pli­ca­tion and ac­count­ing and a cer­tifi­cate course in Au­to­cad. This mis­sion caters to the in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy ed­u­ca­tion re­quire­ments of a whop­ping 45,000 stu­dents all over In­dia. It is also a fact that this mis­sion has earned lots of ac­co­lades for the good qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion it im­parts to those who en­rol here. No won­der, the Ra­jeev Gandhi Com­puter Sak­sharta Mis­sion is all set to scale fur­ther heights and con­quer more hori­zons in its field of op­er­a­tions.
