Vice President of India, Venkaiah Naidu addressed the young graduates during the SRM special convocation 2017. “You must have character, caliber, capacity, conduct and compassion. These five ‘C’s’ are very important. Instead what we often see are three ‘C’s’: caste, community and cash”, said Naidu at the Kattankulathur campus of SRM.

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.
