Once approved, the course will focus on social equality and women empowerment in the lens of Dr B R Ambedkar. The duration of the course is six months and a certificate will be offered at the completion.

The two aforementioned institutes plan to focus on structuring courses and syllabus that aims to bring studies on socio-economic development of the country in light with principles of renowned reformists in the nation.
