Rohtak has emerged over the last few years as one of the best educational hubs in the country. Unlike the district of Kota in Rajasthan, which is mainly targeted by engineering students in need of coaching, Rohtak is focused on providing quality education, given that it already has over 15 government and private educational institutions already set up and in full use. The district is not only known for the thriving educational institutions but also it has an industrial model township that covers thousands of acres of land. This plant is currently the home to one of the largest paint manufacturing plants in Asia. Some of the notable institutions that are responsible for spurring the district into education scenes include-: Regional Center of Foreign Languages of Hyderabad University, National Institute of State Fashion, Women Institute of Professional Studies, Art Institution on the Patterns of J J College of Arts, State-level Film and TV Institute on the pattern of National Film Institute, and Hotel Management Institution at Tilyar. With all these institutions in the region, you can imagine that no learner will have to leave the district in search of quality education in India. And for tourists, they provide a great chance to understand the diverse nature of the Indian education system, and also a chance to see just how their educational infrastructure is organized.
