Message from Registrar Academics desk
India is among the few economies that stood tall during the global financial crisis, the country has built its resilience and is expected to reach a GDP of 8 percent between 2010 and 2015 (NASSCOM 2011). The direct and indirect employment is expected to reach approximately 2.5 million and 8.3 million respectively in the IT-KPO-BPO sector. Further, the Health Ministry estimates India needs 600,000 professional doctors and 2.1 million nurses to maintain a ratio of 1 nurse for a population of 500. The country needs 80,000 beds in hospitals a year over the next 7-10 years to bridge the gap in number of beds as per WHO data. According to Hewitt’s 2010-11 study the demand for talent will be on an upsurge. To cater to this overwhelming growth of job creation, the onus is on academia to deliver quality talent as part of the academic supply chain management. Therefore, as a reputed academic institution we are also expected to contribute in enabling qualitative sustainable growth that we have always deeply cherished. Governance and academic excellence has been our hallmark, along with engaged faculty and students it should serve as bedrock that instills a high degree of professionalism fortifying our credibility. Our focus should continue to be in areas of continuous learning, seamless sharing of knowledge, building best in class technology within the system and finally networking and partnering with the Industry and Government as and when required. We should continue to invest on building a highly technical and capable resource pool of skilled and professional talent. Since this is a daunting endeavor my humble request to all stakeholders i.e. Management, University, Staff, Faculty and students would be to commit to our shared vision which sustains the institute building process and to continue to work as a highly engaged team in order to achieve our audacious goals.
