Each of the 36 States and Union Territories in India have their own virtual space on DIKSHA as tenants, with the autonomy to decide the solutions relevant to them. The platform has eight solution verticals that address school education in India including teacher professional development, access to teaching and learning content, school leadership and others.
Recently, the MHRD announced a program called VidyaDaan for content sourcing and contribution for primary and higher education, as well as teacher education. It leverages the DIKSHA infrastructure. The program invites organisations and individuals across the country to contribute relevant digital content in the K-12 domain.
