“Advances in Electronics and Information Technology have brought in revolutionary changes and there is no aspect of human life which is untouched by these advances in some way or the other. Today, we therefore, live in a connected world in true sense. This connectivity has indeed shrunk the world into the global market place. As globalization leads to competition, it is important to put in place institutionalized mechanisms for the growth of technology and skills to get the competitive edge. In this context, education and development of adequate skill sets can no longer be limited to a particular level. It is a continuing exercise, literally from cradle to grave which calls for creation of synergy to enhance the capacities, while maintaining the quality of education and training.
