Addressing a webinar virtually on ‘Post Budget Seminar: Fostering Strong Industry-Skill Linkage’, the Prime Minister said, “Digital connectivity is what kept our education system alive in this time of a global pandemic. We are seeing how the digital divide is rapidly shrinking in India. Innovation is ensuring our inclusion.”  

“This budget will help in implementing the National Education Policy. National Digital University is an unprecedented step. The problem of shortage of seats can be resolved. There will be unlimited seats. I urge all stakeholders to ensure digital university starts as soon as possible,” the Prime Minister said. He stressed that measures like e-Vidya, One Class One Channel, digital labs, and digital universities are creating an educational infrastructure which will go a long way in helping the youth of the country. “This is an attempt to provide better education solutions to villages, poor, Dalits, backwards and tribal people in the country’s socio-economic set up”, he added.
