New Delhi: The human resources development (HRD) ministry is mulling a plan to set up a central board for Vedic and Sanskrit education which would be first of its kind in the country.

Earlier, a government-appointed panel headed by former chief election commissioner N Gopalaswami had in its report suggested that the Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Veda Vidya Pratishthan in Ujjain be made a Central Sanskrit and Vedic Studies Board for the benefit of Sanskrit ‘pathshalas’ across the country.

“The recommendations of the committee are under consideration of the ministry," a senior official said.

In a report submitted earlier this year, the panel had suggested that the HRD ministry establish a Central Board of Veda and Sanskrit Secondary Education that will affiliate, conduct exams and make available the grant-in-aid.

The panel headed by Gopalaswami in its report said there are Sanskrit pathashalas across the country.

“Their traditional education has neither recognition nor they are aware of recognition issue. It is very necessary to protect traditional learning and make the learning duly recognized by an authority," the panel said as it recommended a Central Board of Veda and Sanskrit Secondary Education.

The panel had also suggested that the proposed board will be an independent body under MHRD (ministry of human resource development or HRD) with appropriate authority.
