1 About the DIET




             Universalisation of Elementary Education and eradication of Adult illiteracy have been two of the most important basic goals of educational development in India since Independence.

             Article 45 of our Constitution , deals with, provision for free and compulsory education for all children until they complete the age  of 14 years.          The National Policy of Education, 1986 gives more importance for the universalisation of Elementary Education.

             Universalisation of elementary education (UEE) consists of two aspects, namely-

  1. i) Universal enrollment and retention
  2. ii) universal attainment.


            In other words we could term these two aspects as Numerical and Quantitative aspects of unversalisation goals. Universal attainment is the ultimate end, where as universal enrollment and retention are the means to achieve the goal.

             To achieve UEE several inputs are required, out of which the following two are the important ones.


  1. i) Dedicated and competent teachers /instructors


  1. ii) Suitable academic and resource support to the teachers /   

              Instructors, which would comprise of


  • Training, guidance and timely advice
  • Development of locally relevant learning materials and teaching aids
  • Evaluation   and Field studies,
  • Action research and experimentation for tackling the problems in achieving goals.


Before the adoption of NPE, academic and resource support was being provided largely at National level and state level by Institutions like NCERT, NIEPA, SCERT etc,. At the district level there were elementary teacher educational institutions, but their activities were confined mostly to pre service teacher education. At this stage, provision of supporting them in a decentralized manner became necessary and NPE and POA envisaged the addition of a third district level support system in the form of DIETs.


            Hence, DIETs are established to provide academic and resource support at the grass root level for the success of various strategies and programmes being undertaken for the realization of Universalisation of Elementary Education.
