Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar said that with its multidisciplinary education, and internationally relevant curriculum, India was set to become a global knowledge superpower.
The goal of the administration, according to Union Minister Subhas Sarkar, was to transform the nation into a superpower in the field of knowledge on Saturday.
Speaking at the Indian Chamber of Commerce’s 5th globalised education forum on the subject of ‘Revisiting the notion of internationalisation – Global to local’, Sarkar, the union minister of state for education, made this statement.
“Our mission is to make India a superpower in the educational sector as the country has formulated a multi-disciplinary education system having the internationally relevant curriculum which will help in generating employment,” he said.
“Today India has not only the potential to be the knowledge centre of the world with the highest number of educated youths, but it is the skill capital to take the country forward which can be accomplished by imparting education on global scale,” the doctor-turned-minister said.
According to Sarkar, the National Education Policy 2020 will empower professors while luring foreign students to make India a worldwide hub.
“There is a demand and the central government is providing a forum to provide assistance to international students,” he added.
According to him, the NEP 2020 brought about reforms by creating a flexible curriculum and educational system to give students a well-rounded education.
Sarkar said that 49,000 students have recently come to India to attend one of our educational institutes, while 10 lakh have left for other countries to study.
The union minister noted that SAARC nations and African nations in particular enjoy travelling to India.
“Today India has a large number of capable youth, we have a skilled human resource capital who can become the engine of development of world,” Sarkar said.
He emphasised that India is currently on the verge of internationalising higher education, which encourages exposure to the top academic and research methods through engagement with the country’s diversified educational system.
The minister made reference to the inclusion of various higher education institutions from India in worldwide rankings and claimed that one of the most influential forces that changed localization was globalisation.
The Bankura MP Sarkar claimed that the Narendra Modi administration had consistently been willing to reform, transform, and positively consider ideas.
He claimed that as part of the goal of globalisation, esteemed Indian institutions are now establishing overseas campuses, and India would one day become the world’s information superpower.
