Dear Students, Faculty members and all stake holders, Warm greetings to all.
It is a matter of proud for us that our country is holding the presidency of G20 for this year till November 2023. For an individual, perhaps you will not realize the importance of it, but globally it makes lot of difference. In the word of our Hon’ble Prime Minister, India's G20 Presidency will work to promote the universal sense of one-ness. Hence the theme of G20 is kept “One Earth, One Family, One Future” drawn from the Sanskrit phrase of the Maha Upanishad “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam”, Throughout the year, more than 200 events planned across the country to strengthen India’s agenda and the six thematic priorities of India’s G20 presidency are (1) Green Development, Climate Finance & LiFE (2) Accelerated, Inclusive & Resilient Growth (3) Accelerating Progress on SDGs (4) Technological Transformation & Digital Public Infrastructure (5) Multilateral Institutions for the 21st century (6) Women-led Development. Working groups this year will focus on global priority areas such as green development, climate finance, inclusive growth, digital economy, public infrastructure, technology transformation, and reforms for women empowerment for socio-economic progress. All these steps are taken to accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals and secure a better future for the generations to come.
Country is also celebrating the 75th year of Independence as Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav, hence it’s time to recall the contribution of our freedom fighters, visionary leaders, because of whom, we not only got independence but also shaped the development of the nation. Throughout the year, many activities & programs conducted under the banner of Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav to sensitize the students on various issues which deals with unity, prosperity and development of the nation.
Our Institute participated actively in the celebration of Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav and G20 Presidency of our country. Lot of activities and programs conducted to inculcate the patriotic spirit in the students in addition to the environmental issues, technology advancement, sports & cultural activities. Being a leading technical institution in the district, many programs conducted for the awareness and boosting the Startup and Innovation activities in the district.
At the last, after a long time, New Education Policy (NEP2020) came in force. This is student centric policy, in which students have been given a lot of flexibility in choosing the subjects he likes. At the same time, emphasis is also given on the Indian Education system, vernacular education and multidisciplinary education. Thus this NEP2020 will make a remarkable change in the present education system of the country and lead towards the stature of ancient India.
Together all, let's contribute in a small things, which collectively makes our institute a best institute in the country.
Thanking You & Best wishes for the future.
Sincerely, and with Best Regards,
