Apex Bodies
When the National Network of Education (NNE) thought of a common platform for the foremost centres of excellence and governing bodies spread across the country, the task not only seemed challenging but also formidable. As we went ahead with the plan, we experienced both. Probably, the NNE is the first education portal of its kind in the country to have covered all the existing 39 Apex Bodies. You name it and you will find it in the list.

How can the Apex Bodies be of immense help to you?
As the Government of India funds these Apex Bodies, it is naturally that all major policies pertaining to education percolate through these apex bodies. They formulate guidelines, dos and don'ts, etc. For instance, if you are curious to know about DOEACC (Department of Electronic Accreditation of Computer Courses), which is engaged in updating global industry relevant to computer education, you may in all probability not get the information readily available. NNE help furnishes you with all the information.

Furthermore, you may even want to know about its location and function, its modus operandi, address and phone numbers … We have in-depth information on everything, on each of these centres.
