Prime Minister Narendra Modi outlined the vision of Viksit Bharat@2047 last month with a focus on empowering the youth of India. He chose to do it during a workshop that was hosted by the governors of all states in the presence of the government’s education establishment including ministers, secretaries of education and the vice-chancellors of universities and higher education institutions (HEIs) from across the country.
PM Modi was conscious that the Visksit Bharat@2047 vision can only be fulfilled if we empower our universities and HEIs. For our universities and HEIs to fulfil the vision of Viksit Bharat in 2047, when the country will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Independence, we need fundamental and radical changes in the governance of Indian universities and HEIs.
