In a bid to rank globally, the universities are required to compete globally for research-ranking to become world-class, President Pranab Mukherjee said at at a recently held book launch.

The outgoing president while emphasising on nation-building through institution-building said, "We are now increasingly being called upon to think about the role of universities in the larger global context."

The book titled Future of Indian Universities: Comparative and International Perspectives, was released by Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and edited by O P Jindal Global University (JGU) Vice-Chancellor C Raj Kumar.

Here' what President Pranab Mukherjee said :

"The universities of today are required to compete globally for research-ranking to help build world-class universities," Mukherjee said.

"Let us not forget the difference between world-class and world-minded. We are now increasingly being called upon to think about the role of universities in the larger global context of an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world," the President added.

Education Quality :

"Indian universities have tremendous potential and need to accelerate their pace. This can only happen if we have good leadership. The public sector needs a huge transformation in the field of higher education, and private universities need to be a model for quality and excellence," Chauhan said in a recent PTI report.
