While congratulating the young graduates at SRM University, Naidu emphasized on the Indian higher education System and said that it is passing through a phase of unprecedented expansion. “Higher education in India is passing through a phase of unprecedented expansion marked by an explosion in the volume of students, a substantial expansion in the number of institutions and a quantum jump in the level of public funding. The enormity of the challenge of providing equal opportunities for quality higher education to ever-growing number of students is also a historic opportunity for correcting sectoral and social imbalances, reinvigorating institutions, creating new benchmarks of excellence and extending the frontiers of knowledge”, opined the Vice President.
