Besides incorporating the ethos of Indian Philosophy right from early schooling, it has also incorporated Sustainable Development Goals which IIT Guwahati has been promoting and has already made it a part of its curriculum at the undergraduate level and has been the first institute in the country to do so.
Moreover, the goal of allocating 6% of GDP on education, entry of foreign universities in India and setting-up a National Research Foundation will provide a tremendous boost to the education sector as well as research and development in the country and generate highly trained human resources to realize the dream of 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' as we move forward in the 21st century.
