I am delighted to see a diverse policy that aims to meet the future learning needs which will engrain practical skill-based learning to shape the learners being Industry ready. The policy very well addresses most of the critical issues that daunt our current education landscape and brings about a totality in terms of the paradigm shift that we need for educated and skilled people in India,” said Niranjan Hiranandani, Provost - HSNC University.
