-Middle school education of three years,
-High school education of three years,

18. The admission to the campus at entry level shall be based on the an Intelligence Quotient Test (IQT) , Empathy Quotient Test (EQT) and a Preliminary Knowledge Test (PKT). The test and its evaluation shall be done by competent professionals.

19. The IRSDC issued by such institutions should be statutorily recognized as equivalent to the conventional Senior Secondary School Certificate while the IPGDC should be equivalent to the conventional Post Graduate Degree.
20. The wholly residential educational institutions set up and run in this manner should be recognized as autonomous educational institutions.
Examination based education needs to be thrown out and an education oriented to develop students in an all round manner should take its place.
Creativity, curiosity, honesty and compassion should be encouraged while parroting should be discouraged.
In any case, the practice of education business in the guise of non-profit societies and trusts should end. No non-profit charities and trusts should be allowed to exploit the students, parents and the government and manage their enormous funds clandestinely without paying any taxes. In the event, the educational institution is run by non-profit societies and trusts, their income and expenditure statements should be made available in their websites and it should be mandatory for them to get it audited. No such institution should be allowed to enhance fees if they are already surplus with funds. It should be their prime duty to prove that they are really non-profit making organizations. If not they should be allowed to get themselves changed to education companies with profit motive.
At least, the government of India should not be a facilitator for education exploitation by unscrupulous elements in various clandestine manners any more!
Let not our beloved nation to degrade year after year to be known as the mother of all corruptions by perpetuating an education system which nurtures corruption and dishonesty!
