The central theme of the sessions was floated to the group by Niti Aayog chief executive officer Amitabh Kant at the three-day event meeting organized by the HRD ministry. In his address to the group, Mr Kant noted that Indian Higher Education system needed to develop special packages to attract the best of teachers.
Another proposal that came forth during the meeting suggested that granting of more autonomy in areas like hiring foreign faculty in institutions that are engaged in government’s Study in India programme, would also go a long way in ensuring hiring of quality teaching professionals.
