New Delhi, India — November 6, 2015 — India’s first ever Visitor’s Conference concluded today at Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential Palace) with an interactive session between Industry and Academia. The President of India is Visitor of 114 central institutions of higher learning.

Participants in the conference included heads of all Central Universities and Indian Institutes of Technology’s.

During the conference, India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, released a brochure “IMPRINT INDIA” and handed over the first copy to the President of India. Smriti Irani, India’s Human Resource Development Minister, was also present on the occasion.

The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee said, “my constant refrain that we cannot aspire to be a world power without having a single world-class university, has found resonance amongst the institutions, who have now started looking at the international ranking processes in a more proactive and systematic manner.”

“For the first time,” President Mukherjee said, “two Indian institutions have found place in the top 200 positions in QS rankings.” “Indian Institute of Science Bangalore at 147th and Indian Institute of Technology Delhi at 179th place deserve full praise and compliments,” he added.

“Innovation is the currency of the future. Innovation converts research into wealth,” the President concluded. “Unless we recognize this reality and start working in a focused manner on creating a strong innovation culture in our country now, we will be left behind in the march to modernity.”
