District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) is the most significant educational intervention in the country while the N.C.E.R.T. came up in the 1960´s & the S.C.E.R.T. came up in 1970´s, the need for a third tier of training and resource support structure, right at the district level was genuinely felt in order to improve the quality of basic education. As a result DIETs were setup in almost all the districts of all the states in the country. DIET Mathura was setup in 1992.
