Laying stress on the standard of teaching in the country and hoping to step up educational institutions ranking globally, President Pranab Mukherjee has opinated on the requirement to structure the education sector.
The President says that it is not that our country lacks the requisite talent or merit but there are gaps that needs to be filled. “Concerted efforts over the past few years have shown some good results and recently, two Indian institutions found a place among the top 200 universities as per an international ranking.”
He was hopeful of other institutes improving their ranks in the future, a release issued by Rashtrapati Bhavan said.
Mukherjee was speaking after receiving first copy of a book on “The President of India and the Governance of Higher Education Institutions” from the founding chancellor Naveen Jindal and founding vice chancellor Professor C Raj Kumar of O P Jindal Global University, at Rashtrapati Bhavan.
