IITs have built brand India globally, says PM
Innovation and enterprise, the prime minister stressed are the foundation
of making India a developed nation.
Addressing the 56th annual convocation of the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-Bombay), Modi said innovation was the buzzword of the 21st century.
"If you don't innovate, you will stagnate. It is not just the government efforts. New ideas come from young minds at campuses and not government buildings and fancy offices," the prime minister said.
Dwelling on the history of IITs, Modi said they were conceptualised to contribute to nation-building post Independence through use of technology.
