Each of the experts has their group that works separately on different matters.

 

The core group headed by Adhia focused on ‘expanding access’ and has drawn up a plan to double gross enrollment ratio to 52 by 2024. It also stressed on doubling and tripling enrollment of SCs/STs, respectively and ensuring geographically backward groups catch up with the national average.

 

The group led by Kant has devised a plan for internationalization of institutes, so as to facilitate admission of at least 10% international students across premier institutes, firming up policy for foreign universities in India and promoting international academic collaborations.

 

Ten expert groups from their team have presented draft plans on various issues specific to higher education after a three-day brainstorming boot camp at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) Mussorie from April 22-24.
