Post Budget Reactions from educationist
Naveen K M, Managing Director, Trio World School
The Union Budget 2020 has proposed to allocate INR 99,300 crore toward skill development and quality education, out of which 3000 crore has been allocated for skill development which is a welcoming move.
Other than this, the other appreciable move taken my the finance ministry is to collaborate with private institutions and to bring in bridge course for developing the skills of the teachers, this would provide an advantageous platform for both private and government as well.
The education sector has also received a good boost by launching ‘Study in India’ program with Ind-Sat exam, this will bring in foreign students to India for higher education from Asian and African countries. The budget 2020, seems to give hope to a lot of educational institutes through Study in India program. This is a very- balanced budget and we believe that these were the much-needed steps that the government has taken to develop Indian education system. Overall, we believe that they have embarked upon a path in the right direction.
