New Delhi, December 21, 2023 — The President of India, Draupadi Murmu, attended the 69th convocation of IIT Kharagpur on December 18, 2023, and delivered a speech.

The President emphasized that the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are globally recognized as centers of excellence in talent and technology. She praised IIT Kharagpur for being the country’s first IIT and nurturing great talents over its 73-year journey. Additionally, the President acknowledged that IIT Kharagpur’s contribution to the country’s development is unmatched.

The President was happy to know that IIT Kharagpur is working towards forming partnerships and collaborations with other global institutions as part of the Indian Government’s policy to internationalize and globalize IITs. She believes this move will help establish IIT Kharagpur internationally and play a significant role in getting global recognition for the Indian education system.

The President pointed out that despite India having the oldest knowledge tradition in the world, not even a single educational institution from the country is ranked among the top 50 educational institutions globally.

She stated that though good education is more critical than race for ranking, good ranking attracts students and good faculty from all over the world and enhances the country’s reputation. She emphasized that IIT Kharagpur, the country’s oldest IIT, should try this direction.

The President emphasized the crucial role institutions such as IIT Kharagpur can play in making 21st-century India a hub of innovation and technology. She urged them to create groundbreaking efforts to develop and implement new technology.
