Rahul Gandhi's take on Indian education system

By Super

New Delhi: Congress vice-president, Rahul Gandhi said, that the education system in India requires a reinvention and a connection must be established between higher education and the industry.

In India, education and industry are considered as two different things, said Gandhi while answering a question at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) at New Delhi.

On the contrary, modern education and modern university are, "essentially a network that connects industry, connects government, NGOs, students with a connect point within the university," he said.

Some of the universities of India, for instance, IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology) are excellent, however, India lags behind when it comes to required level of networking and contemporary system of knowledge, he said.

He said, a connection between higher education and industry needs to be established now.

"What role does industry have in our higher education? There is a deep connect, but there is a disconnect, so bring that together at the university level," he emphasised.

Gandhi said, "We will not be able to do this by using the same old tools, it has to be done with opening up access, bringing people into it, ideas from the business into it."
