The research and development activity will be very useful for the development of the industry and especially the manufacturing sector.
I hope India will continue its good work and produce a number of doctorates and see that we will occupy the second position at least if not the first position. This will show the encouragement our UGC and CSIR is extending for students for their higher studies.
We need to strengthen the colleges and universities in terms of the support, policies, research activities, and paper writing. The intake, assessment of these candidates need to be stringent to ensure quality so that we can attract more and more foreign students alongside Indian students. This would enable us to move up the ranking and become globally recognized universities.
Lastly, we should see to it that, the Indian graduates coming out should have proper job opportunities so that their education is not wasted.
