In a decision to encourage tribal education, a National Tribal University will soon be established in Chhattisgarh. The Chhattisgarh Tribal Advisory Council has already approved the proposal for the same. The proposal of the Council has requested a relaxation in guidelines which says 300 acres of land are required to establish a new university while the State Government has decided to provide 100 acres of land.

However, the meeting chaired by Chief Minister Raman Singh felt that 100 acres of land was sufficient for the new university. The proposal will be sent to the Union Government through the Governor. The minister added that caste verification process will start shortly in the state and every student will get a certificate soon.

Another relaxation norm decided by the Advisory council is to the youth of extreme backward caste namely Korwa, Baiga, Birhor, Abhujmadia in the appointment of assistant teachers and teachers. Now, they have to clear teacher eligibility test within span of three years while within five years they have to complete the degree of DEd. or DEd.
