The Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal says," The university system must allow mobility to students. The university system needs to rise up from the current approach of limiting itself to teaching in specific streams such as arts and commerce as also limiting students to availing courses that are available only in their institution."
He says, "The power of the communication revolution taking place in the country must be utilized so that a student from one university can access a course in another university.Multi disciplinary study and research will bring in creativity."
Sibal pointed out that enormous interest is being expressed by foreign universities in collaborating with Indian universities or setting up their institutions here. He also said that the general message he got from foreign institutions was that the large student strength in India attracts them to come here, especially for undertaking research.
