New Delhi, August 03, 20212 — Lok Sabha (lower house of India’s bicameral Parliament) today passed Central Universities (Amendment) Bill 2022 for conversion of the National Rail and Transportation Institute (NRTI), a Deemed to be University into Gati Shakti Vishwavidyalaya (GSV), a Central University.

While replying in the Lok Sabha, Union Minister for Education and Skill Development, Dharmendra Pradhan, said that Prime Minister Modi always works with a vision for the future. Under his leadership, a future-ready workforce is ready to embrace the fourth industrial revolution and the challenges of the 21st century.

Mr. Pradhan spoke about the transformations in the infrastructure and transport sectors, including roads, railways, shipping, and aviation. He said that the growth of transport sectors, the building of airports across the nation in smaller cities, and increasing air traffic reflect the aspirations of the people of India. The Education Minister said that the transformation in the transport sector calls for building an institution to build a knowledge repository, conduct research, curate best practices, facilitate skill development, work on capacity building and facilitate the growth of transport sectors. He added that future students would need to learn about the environment, commerce, and social sciences, in addition to STEM, to succeed in the infrastructure sector. Thus India has envisioned and created a world-class, multi-disciplinary, multi-dimensional futuristic institution called Gati Shakti University.
