Dharmendra Pradhan – Union Minister:
Together with MoS Education Dr Subhas Sarkar ji, Annapurna ji and Rajkumar Ranjan ji joined PM Shri Narendra Modi’s interaction with Directors of centrally-funded technical institutions IISc Bangalore, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras and IIT Kanpur.
It is a matter of immense pride that PM Narendra Modi has entrusted me and the new team with the important responsibility of working on the education, skill development & entrepreneurship landscape as well as on encouraging research & innovation for India’s unhindered progress.
With the introduction of NEP, the Indian education system has taken a giant leap in fostering an environment for a future-ready 21st century India.
We are committed to make students and youth the primary stakeholders in propelling India towards an equitable knowledge society.
I am confident that under the guidance of PM Shri Narendra Modi and the support of our academic institutions, we will continue to set new benchmarks in integrating education with employment & making it more inclusive, holistic, multi-disciplinary and at par with global standards.
