Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday called upon the youth to be flexible and capable to adapt to the changing nature of jobs.
Delivering the University of Mysore’s Centenary Convocation address virtually, Mr Modi focused in the importance of “skilling, re-skilling and upskilling” in the modern day world and the National Education Policy (NEP) issued by his Government recently has paid attention to this crucial aspect.
Mr. Modi says the NEP , provides a multi-dimensional approach towards education and will bring about vast changes in the field of education and make the youth more competitive.
Expressing happiness over the University of Mysore’s plans to start multi-disciplinary programmes as envisaged under NEP, the Prime Minister said students can simultaneously study “global technology” and “local culture” under these programmes. This, he felt, can be used to promote local businesses through global technology.
