Chhattisgarh was once known for its short-lived terrorism, incompetence, and lack of social and economic development. It is now one of the fastest-growing and most economically manageable states in the country. At the same time, there is a clear understanding that economic growth makes no sense without giving education and empowerment to the State’s citizens. To achieve this goal on a priority basis, the State has launched several schemes and projects intending to create an inclusive and comprehensive educational environment for the youth. These programs have redefined education in the State and created a governance model to emulate the rest of the country. This article examines the best two colleges that are making the State an educational hub for its citizens.
