It is a significant instrument for eliminating inequality since it allows people to become selfsufficient.

India itself is poised to become a global education hub with the government introducing major policy changes. The session will focus on:

  • Promoting India as a global study destination, providing premium education at affordable costs.
  • Cooperation, Coordination, and Agreement with the leading universities of the world
  • Increase research collaboration and student exchanges between Indian institutions and global institutions
