TERI University awards degrees
Hindustan Times (Education), 9 November 2016

As many as 200 post graduate and 10 doctoral students were awarded degrees at the recently held 9th annual convocation at TERI University.

Delivering his convocation address, MHRD minister Prakash Javadekar urged the graduating students to have a sense of responsibility and proportion and ensure that a balance exists between development and environment protection. He encouraged them to “take up all initiatives and Duniya Kar lo apni mutthi mein”.

He negated the belief that development and environment protection cannot co-exist.

Ashok Chawla, chancellor, TERI University said that issues of environment management and climate change cannot be handled solely by the government but have to be handled by all stakeholders, including the younger generation. Going forward, sustainability will be the focus area and will provide key jobs to the coming generations, he said.

Maximum autonomy to be given to top performing higher educational institutes: Prakash Javadekar
Indiatoday, 5 November 2016

"We want to give more autonomy and freedom to the best Universities, very little regulation. The average universities we will have 50:50 and the bad universities will have 90 per cent regulation and ten per cent freedom," said Prakash Javadekar.

The government is looking to bring in a system where the basis of autonomy will depend on performance. Maximum autonomy will be given to top performing higher educational institutions while the ones which lag behind will have more regulation, said Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar.

Addressing the convocation ceremony of TERI university in New Delhi, Javadekar said that when it comes to deemed universities, there are some really good universities, some average ones and some which are bad. "I want to have different set of rules for them. And that should not depend on NAAC grading but National Ranking Framework, that is also important.

"Based on that, we want to give more autonomy and freedom to the best Universities, very little regulation. The average universities we will have 50:50 and the bad universities will have 90 per cent regulation and ten per cent freedom," the HRD minister said

He added that that is the way the government wants to improve the whole education scenario, be it deemed universities, private universities or state universities, "Anything, but that is how we want to take everybody along," the HRD minister said

At the convocation ceremony, Javadekar, who has also held the environment ministry portfolio earlier, said that development and sustainability can go together

"Our goal is development without destruction," he said, emphasising that stopping projects is not the answer. He added that India had contributed much lesser to carbon emissions than several other countries of the world.
