The Government of Inda, with the assistance of World Bank launched TEQIP - Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme aiming at a systematic transformation of Technical education system in the country. It was intended that the Department of the State Government responsible for managing Technical Education would establish a State Project Facilitation Unit (SPFU) with adequate staff before signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the MHRD and the State Government.
The State Project Facilitation Unit was established in 2003 for facilitating the implementation of TEQIP project in the state.
TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme) was envisaged in 2003 as a long‐term Programme of about 10‐12 years duration to be implemented in 3 phases for transformation of the Technical Education System. As per TEQIP concept and design, each phase is required to be designed on the basis of lessons learnt from implementation of an earlier phase.
