Finally the planning commission is on the right track

At last the planning commission is on the right track. But it must make sure that the new IITs and IISERs are distributed across the country and not just gifted to the states aligned with the government of the day. For the last two years the planning commission has disgraced itself by rubber stamping locations for new IISERs based on political considerations. Its high time for it to redeem itself.


(Thanks to Rabi Mohapatra for pointing to this.)

NEW DELHI: With a view to maintain the flow of skilled workforce, Planning Commission today recommended setting up of more IITs and increasing investment in technology and research.

Given the global scenario of changing economics and technological upgrades, "we have to sustain the supply of skilled manpower. Government should focus on creating many more IITs. Maybe we need at least three times more than what we have now. Simply upgrading the existing ones won't do," Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia said.

Ahluwalia said the country has to rapidly expand capacity to train skilled workforce and build upon the capability for technological development.

Pointing at the high drop out rates in primary schools, he said nearly 50 percent children drop out and only eight percent move on for higher and technical education.

"For India to be a global leader the percentage has to go up from eight percent to 20 percent," he said.
