"Samarth" is an initiative by the Ministry of Education started in 2019, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology NMEICT-II (now NMEICT-III), with an aim to enable the universities and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) through a digital framework for planning, management, delivery, and monitoring of services for students, staff, and other stakeholders. Under the project, the HEIs are provided with a fully managed, cloud based, comprehensive ERP that is custom built for HEIs of the country.
Samarth blends technology with policies and standards of governance in higher education and makes it available to the institution and its stakeholders through anytime-anywhere digital interfaces. Institutions can deliver quality higher education experience to learners by simplifying their procedures and practices through Samarth’s digital interfaces.
Since 2019, Samarth has been extended to various types of Higher Education Institutions including Central Universities, State Universities, Colleges, NITs, IIITs, IIM, IISER, and other Institutions of National Importance. With a pan-India presence, Samarth is building a nationwide network of future ready digital campuses providing world-class yet uniform experience to students and administrators of institutions.
Under Samarth initiative, an open source and open standards enabled evolutionary process automation engine is provided to Universities and HEIs to drive their digital transformation. The initiative provides a gamut of digital tools that are integrated in an online platform of best practices for efficient resource planning and management, process and service improvement, and good governance in higher education.
The Samarth e-governance platform integrates technology and education delivery in a seamless manner. It is custom-made for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across the country and allows them to deploy a digital framework for planning, management, delivery and monitoring of services for students, staff and other stakeholders. It caters to the needs of Universities and HEIs by introducing 9 packages comprising of 40+ modules on a single platform. The modules help Institutions to streamline their repository of records: starting from admission details to examination, employee and leave data, payroll and administrative information amongst others. Designed after a careful study and understanding of University rules and systems, they present an integrated system of records and data. Moreover, the modules are user friendly and constant research and feedback is carried out to enhance user experience and add new or additional features.
Samarth E-Gov Suite is a catalyst in the transformation of Higher Education institutions transitioning towards a future ready digital campus.
