According to NEP, the entire society is leading the educational institutions and the same institutions should be followed by the industries. He asserted that the most essential human resource for the industry must come from educational institutions.

In the meantime, all preparations have already been made for the implementation of the Education Policy, which has been delayed due to covid and the policy will provide access to quality teaching and quality learning, as well as open up multi-subject learning, he added.

It is true that educational institutions must have global quality infrastructure. However, the Government is generous in this regard. It is not argued that all facilities should be made by educational institutions. Instead, the Government has given free opportunities to develop facilities and enter into agreements with industrial institutes or any global educational institute, he added.

Stating that internship period of students studying in technical and professional courses has been extended to one year due to the need for quality HR in the industry and all industry representatives, including NASSCOM, have come forward to cooperate in this connection.
