What is the objective of BINC examination?

I personally did not understand the objective behind BINC examination. Is government only try to show off that they are doing something to promote Indian bioinformatics sector?

Moreover, It looks like BINC indirectly putting an extra burden to bioinformatician, mentally and financially.

    There is a growing need for trained manpower in the area of Bioinformatics. Currently, various universities and institutions, both government and private, impart Bioinformatics education in India. However, there exists a large variation in the course contents, training period and method of training. The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India has instituted BINC examination with the objective of evaluating the Bioinformatics knowledge & skills of students. The qualifying candidates will be awarded a certificate. This certification would facilitate industries and potential employers in recruiting Bioinformatics professionals.

    I believe, BINC motto is to filter out skilled bioinformatician and give them recognition. There are several universities offering bioinformatics courses, but not all of them are producing good bioinformaticians.
