With respect to education in India, DIETs are district-level educational institutes established in every district of India by the Indian government to help in implementing and coordinating government policies at the district level. Almost three million elementary and primary teachers require recurrent orientation to innovations in teaching and learning at the basic school level.

They also operate as a platform for research and experimental work in the educational domain and organize programs to train teachers in new innovations. It will have two inter-related aspects:
- Excellence in the work of the institution
- Helping the elementary and adult education systems in the district in achieving excellence.
With respect to the first aspect, efforts will be made to provide DIETs with all necessary physical and manpower resources. But it will be for them to harness these and other available resources in the best possible manner, so as to achieve and promote excellence.
In that respect, DIETs also have a very important pace-setting role to play.
