Greetings from AICTE..!!
I begin by wishing you happiness ahead.
Further to my earlier communication pertaining to the release of happiness app, I once again reiterate that this initiative is being taken to address the post covid stress build-up that further underscores the need to reinforce the social and emotional learning faculties of our students.
Happy students will contribute to nation building as good citizens.
The app not only assesses the social and emotional well being of our students, it also helps each of them and thus the institute calibrate to its own collective happiness. We shall be releasing the happiness rankings of colleges on the 20th March 2022, which is the World Happiness Day.
India ranks 139th out of 155 countries in the world happiness rankings although we may be much better. With your participation we intend to send a massive e-campaign using the app and involving our youth to the UN for them to acknowledge this effort which could improve our ranking. Your participation therefore is imperative and imminent.
The app: YourOneLife is being launched as per the schedule below:
Ceremony at 11 AM at Raj Bhawan, Jammu on 20th December 2021 at the hands of the honorable Lt. Governor Jammu & Kashmir.
J&K has been specifically chosen for the launch of happiness in our mission to reach across our community from North to South and East to West.

The training and monitoring of the outcomes will be conducted through the inbuilt features of the software in a DIY (Do it yourself) manner and is designed to not burden the faculty of the institutions or universities. The monitoring process will be carried out by the software and appropriate assigned credits per student per institution/university will be conveyed by the system to you.
The app shall be made active for use on the 20th December by 12noon after its formal inauguration and launch. Due notification will be sent to all institutes to register and start using it.
