While inaugurating the country’s first Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), President Pranab Mukherjee expressed his grief and concern over the reducing position of education institutes of the country. In the present scenario, apart from having 720 universities, 37,000 degree colleges and 11,000 polytechnic institutes, none could make up in the list of the world’s top 200 schools prepared by grading organizations.

Mukherjee said the thought that saddens him the most is that the standards of higher education institutes compared to international benchmark is abysmally low here. He more added that not a single Indian institute such as the IITs, NITs or universities could find a place.

Amidst of all the sadness, Mukherjee laid emphasis on hoping that the new IIEST, Shibpur will bring in an integrated version of undergraduate education along with post graduation and research in engineering and science.

The program was attended by many eminent personalities of the city.
