[pib] The Urban Learning Internship Programme (TULIP)


From UPSC perspective, the following things are important :

Prelims level: TULIP Program

Mains level: Not Much


More than 25,000 internship opportunities have been advertised under the TULIP programme so far.

TULIP Program

  • TULIP is a portal jointly developed by the Ministry of HRD, Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs, and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
  • It helps reap the benefits of India’s demographic dividend as it is poised to have the largest working-age population in the world in the coming years.
  • It helps enhance the value-to-market of India’s graduates and help create a potential talent pool in diverse fields like urban planning, transport engineering, environment, municipal finance etc.
  • It furthers the Government’s endeavors to boost community partnership and government-academia-industry-civil society linkages.

Why need such a program?

  • India has a substantial pool of technical graduates for whom exposure to real-world project implementation and planning is essential for professional development.
  • General education may not reflect the depth of productive knowledge present in society.
  • Instead of approaching education as ‘doing by learning,’ our societies need to reimagine education as ‘learning by doing.’
