Bengaluru: Venkaiah Naidu says Technological Universities have a key role to play in transforming India into a knowledge power

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has stressed that the new National Education Policy aims to transform and reorient the higher educational institutions of the country towards the challenges of the knowledge economy.

Speaking at the sixth annual convocation of PES college in Bengaluru today, the Vice President emphasized that in the 21st century, the global economy is dominated by knowledge-related activities. India aims to become a multi-trillion dollar economy by 2050 and NEP-2020 sets a target of at least 50% of this to come from knowledge-related activities and skills.

Hence he noted that the technological Universities have a special role to play in transforming India into a knowledge power. Similarly, indigenous publication of academic journals is also called for to retain copyright and ownership of knowledge generated in this country.

He observed that it would be good if our learned academicians could promote knowledge economy by authoring books of global standards on contemporary themes.

This is so because Indian authors can better contextualize the engineering course content with regard to Indian socio-economic conditions.

This would be helpful for the young students as they would be able to better understand and find solutions to the many problems faced by rural India, farmers, and other underprivileged groups in society.

Emphasizing education in the mother tongue, the Vice President said that the educational department must also strive to create study material in Indian languages for the benefit of our students. He also urged private institutions and universities to make the best use of this opportunity and to work towards making India self-reliant and technologically advanced in the space sector.
