Budget reaction quote on behalf of Dr. R. M. Chitnis, Vice Chancellor, MIT-World Peace University


Dr. R. M. Chitnis, Vice Chancellor, MIT-World Peace University said, “At the outset, the Union Budget 2023-2024 deserves compliments for being promising as well as pragmatic. It will surely bring about positive changes in the country and pave ways towards our march of becoming a 5 trillion-dollar economy. The Budget is equally encouraging for the higher education sector as well. The HE Sector forms the backbone of the economy by creating and nurturing a talent pool of skilled professionals necessary for nation building. With the advent of new technological tools and a wide reach of the internet to grassroot levels, the various initiatives declared by the Government such as National Digital Library, Eklavya Model Schools, PM Kaushal Vikas Yojana, inclusion of regional language books for non-curricular subjects, opening up the ICMR labs for collaborative research and innovation projects, opening of Centres of Excellence utilising artificial intelligence tools for interdisciplinary research, new nursing colleges and 100 labs for developing educational apps and other such proactive measures will surely give a boost to the education sector. In line with the National Education Policy (NEP 2020), these initiatives will surely encourage reskilling and up-skilling with a greater impetus.”
