DIKSHA was developed on the basis of the Strategy and Approach Paper for the National Teacher Platform released by the then Honourable Minister for Human Resource Development, Shri Prakash Javdekar in September, 2017. DIKSHA can be accessed by learners and teachers across the country and currently supports 36 Indian languages. Each State/UT leverages the DIKSHA platform in its own way, as it has the freedom and choice to use the varied capabilities and solutions of the platform to design and run programs for teachers, learners and administrators. DIKSHA policies and tools make it possible for the education ecosystem (educationist, experts, organisations, institutions - government, autonomous institutions, non-govt and private organisations) to participate, contribute and leverage a common platform to achieve learning goals at scale for the country. NCERT Textbooks are licenced under CC BY NC-ND and all the resources are licenced under CC BY NC-SA. Under the PM eVidya initiative of the GoI, which was declared as part of the Atma Nirbhar Bharat, DIKSHA has been declared as ‘One Nation, One Digital Platform’.Read Less
