If India works on many transformative changes and advances higher education, it would become the most developed country in the world by 2047, AICTE Chairman Prof. T G Sitharam said here on Thursday. In addition, he praised the New Education Policy (NEP), 2020, claiming that its execution will turn India into the global “knowledge capital.”
During the Institution Innovation Council (IIC) Regional Meet of the Ministry of Education, which took place at Amity University, the chairman of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) expressed his opinions. “By 2047, India will be the most developed country in the world. During this Amrit Kaal, we have to work on various transformational reforms and advance higher education,” said Sitharam. “To establish India as the global hub for knowledge, the next 25 years must see the implementation of the good policies and initiatives included in NEP, 2020. However, it is not being adhered to, said the previous director of IIT-Guwahati. Sitharam went on to say that in order for Amrit Kaal to reach as many people as possible, education in the mother language is part of the plan.
As a result, we have authored several publications in regional tongues and implemented test modifications. Exam writing and rote learning must alter, he said. The AICTE chairman said, “We have also made significant progress in integrating skill development into education since it is critical to the nation’s development.”
In addition to being “Aatma Nirbhar,” or self-sufficient, he emphasized that India wants to become a “Vishwa Daata,” or giver, as seen during the COVID-19 epidemic when India aided and supplied vaccinations to more than 100 countries. The main initiative of the Education Ministry’s Innovation Cell, which aims to provide institutions a networking platform for innovation, is the regional gatherings. Attendees at the Amity University in Noida on Thursday ranged from 800 to 1,000, including innovators and businesses, policymakers, and state and federal government organizations.
