Shri Pokhriyal said that India is taking a leap in the field of Education & Research and is emerging as a Vishwaguru. We are equally proud to have a Guru like Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi who has constantly been thinking about the welfare of students, faculty staff and all other stakeholders associated with the Indian Education sector, he added.
The Minister further said that initiatives such as National Education Policy – 2020 and Institute of Eminence are instrumental in ranking our colleges and institutes globally. This can be felt by looking at the university rankings declared by QS & Times Group, he added.
***Jadavpur University stands at 651-700 and University Calcutta 801-100 with no significant score at the bottom of the list which is not very inspiring at all. However, a difference in ranking point is very alarming when the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) Ranked 177 but the score is 46.4 while Number 1 Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) score is 100.***
