NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam 2023. The ‘Samagam’ aligns with the third anniversary of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.

Delivering his inaugural address at the Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam, the prime minister said various global universities are interested in setting up their campuses in India.
PM Modi stated that the world views India as a nursery of new opportunities, with several countries approaching the government to establish IIT campuses there.

“The world is looking at India as a nursery of new possibilities. Many countries are approaching us to open IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) campuses there. Two IIT campuses — one in Tanzania and one in Abu Dhabi — are already about to start operations… Various global universities are also reaching out to us, expressing their interest in setting up campuses in India,” the PM said.
The prime minister emphasised that the greatest injustice is to judge youngsters based on their language rather than their talent. “The NEP aims at making India a hub of research and innovation. The policy has given equal importance to traditional knowledge systems and futuristic technology,” he said.
The PM also asked schools to make students aware of subjects such as climate change, disaster management, and clean energy.
PM Modi also released education and skill curriculum books translated into 12 Indian languages. The two-day Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam 2023 is taking place at Bharat Mandapam, located in the old Pragati Maidan here.
