Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS), launched in 2013 aims at providing strategic funding to eligible state higher educational institutions. The central funding (in the ratio of 60:40 for general category States, 90:10 for special category states and 100% for union territories) would be norm based and outcome dependent. The funding would flow from the central ministry through the state governments/union territories to the State Higher Education Councils before reaching the identified institutions. The funding to states would be made on the basis of critical appraisal of State Higher Education Plans, which would describe each state’s strategy to address issues of equity, access and excellence in higher education.

  The State of Assam joined RUSA on 29.10.2013 by committing to reform its higher education sector. The Project Approval Board (PAB) in its 5th , 8th and 10th PAB meetings held on 10.12.2014, 02.09.2015 and 02.02.2016, approved proposals of the State worth Rs.337 crore, comprising of Rs.303.3 crore as Central share (90%) and Rs.33.7 crore (10%) as State’s share.
