Chairman Message. 

National Board of Open School, INDIA has been established with the aim of providing education for all at their door steps and consequently achieve the target of 'universalization' of education' at the school level. the main target group is those individuals, who have not been able to enroll in the formal system or have dropped out due to some reason or the other especially females, rural youth and working people.

    The NBOSI has been established to promote educational, social and economic upliftment and general welfare of the people of India, particularly the socially and economically backward sections of the Indian society by organizing various types of educational programmes.

    The demand for quality education is growing, and presently it is often being met by Institutions outside of India. It is evident from the fact that during the year 2005 itself, more than 80, 000 students went to the United States for higher education, spending more than $4 billion annually. Against this background, it gives me immense pleasure to announce the commencement of the first Academic Session of NBOSI w.e.f 16 th July, 2010. 

 The NBOSI is built on a foundation to promote greater access to quality higher education, cutting-edge research and contribution to the society. It provides generic skills together with flexibility, adaptability and passion for life-long learning, while simultaneously equipping young people with the best basis for careers in any area, including industry, and for the unforeseen needs of the future. The NBOSI’s guiding tenet is to nurture and mould talent. It is also envisaged that the NBOSI shall make significant contribution to the cultural, intellectual and social aspects of the broader community. Professors and scholars working in the NBOSI shall leverage their expertise to improve local industry, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and regional institutions. The NBOSI strives to develop global leaders that will include future Nobel Laureates, heads Of State, Olympic champions, Community leaders, Captains Of Industry, Thought Leaders, Social Reforms etc. It is believed that the NBOSI should build perspectives as well as provide meaningful employment skills. In practice, undergraduate education has been isolated from post-graduate and research institutions; further, the rigidity of the Indian higher education system rarely allows students to learn across departments even within the same institutions. Here, I feel proud to inform that the trajectory of NBOSI Board include liberal arts and natural sciences programmes being offered alongside several professional programmes – the students having the flexibility to customize their education from various offerings at the NBOSI. The arts and science programmes finally are the core of all the students. This NBOSI shall cater to the development and uplifting of the economic conditions and social welfare of the local indigenous tribes of the state and also the local population as a whole.
