Javadekar assures greater autonomy to premier higher education institutions

Observing that the Centre's role is of a facilitator and not a controller, Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday assured greater autonomy to institutions of higher learning.

Javadekar chaired a review meeting with directors of five Indian Institutes of Science and Research located at Pune, Kolkata, Mohali, Bhopal and Thiruvananthapuram and the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru.

Speaking on the occasion, the minister said the government role must be of a facilitator and not a controller, for which it proposes to give more autonomy to institutions of higher learning, based on their performance.

Stressing on research and innovation, Javadekar said that joint effort of IITs, IIMs and IISERs must be ensured so that the quality of being imparted in top institutions gets reflected in their international rankings.

He said that research and innovation must power the Make in India campaign, as sustainable progress is achieved only in those nations which themselves innovate.

Having already held review meeting of IIITs, IITs and IIMs, Javadekar is scheduled to meet vice chancellors of 41 central Universities at Banaras Hindu University on October 6 to focus on actions taken and proposed for improvement of quality in education, research, internal resource generation, infrastructure, student-centric initiatives, and e-governance initiatives.
