Media coverage of VELS University, Chennai Tamil Nadu, Tamil Nadu

India will emerge major economy by 2030: Expert

Union science and technology secretary Dr T. Ramasami gives away medals to meritorious students at Vels University during its second convocation on Friday.

Union science and technology secretary Dr T. Ramasami reiterated that India would emerge as a major economy of the world along with China during 2030 and said that by 2025 India would account for a large proportion of people of 30 years of age.

After conferring an honorary doctorate on R. Bhagwan Singh, consulting editor, Deccan Chronicle, at Vels University on Friday, Ramasami said that India of 2012 was different from the India of 1952.

With more than 30 per cent share of global supply of engineers, India would scale in advanced manufacturing as well.

In 1750, India and China shared nearly half of the global economy. By 2050, China and India might also have the largest share of the economy, he said, adding that unless a critical mass of global population gets educated to understand and adhere to high human values, the India of the future would not be able to lead the social system in 2030.

Ramasami said that the Indian education system should focus more on self-realisation than self-grandeur, adding that revealing the perfection within to oneself is the best way to educate a society that lives by moral codes and social ethics.

He told DC that the Union government had planned to produce 10,000 PhDs at the end of the XIth Five-Year Plan, adding that at present the country had 5,900.

India produced 4,200 PhDs whereas China produced only 280 during 1996. Then we stayed on but China moved up to produced more PhDs. We have added another 2,000 PhDs in the last five years, he said.
