Universities such as Nalanda made India international centre of knowledge and education, said Indian President Ram Nath Kovind. He was speaking at the releasing function of India Rankings 2019 and Atal Rankings of Institutions on Innovation Achievement.

In the 21st century, Indian universities must push themselves to reach a status of yesteryear institutions like Nalanda, the President added. He is of the opinion that the current expansion and progress in higher education has widened access and equity in the education sector.

But the President also expressed his concern over the quality of higher education in the country.

“It is essential to ensure that higher education not only fulfils individual aspirations, but also achieves national goals and priorities,” Ramnath Kovind said.
