India today faces an enormous challenge, that of harnessing its vast human resource. We stand at 1,352,065,645 and the numbers are increasing every second. A study conducted in early this year said that about 41.08 % of our population is in the age bracket of 25-54 years, 0-14 years stands at 27.34% and 15-24 is at 17.9%. A look at these numbers is sufficient to understand that we are heading for a demographic disaster if this reserve is not harnessed.
Today, unemployment is a major challenge, however, this issue is not due to lack of education but more so due to lack of opportunities and access. But as Albert Einstein said, "In The Middle Of Every Difficulty Lies Opportunity" we can together turn this demographic dividend into a skilled and successful workforce to help India to become a nucleus of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Under the leadership of Honorable Chief Minister, Vasundhara Raje, Rajasthan government is leaving no stone unturned to bring about a paradigm shift to the higher education scenario. With the dedicated focus on nurturing innovations and entrepreneurship to make youth employable and generate employment, the Rajasthan government is truly setting a precedent.

Indian Accredation Agencies are the most scrupulous in developing guidelines and evaluating the academic integrity of the institutions that operate within its borders. The online education has allowed colleges and universities to operate seamlessly across geographical boundaries. Policy makers need to rigorously examine and reexamine their evaluation guidelines for colleges and universities to operate within their borders regardless of how instruction is delivered. The session would discuss the key accredation parameters and what needs to be evaluated for Institutions to protect the interests of students and safeguard the reputation of the Institutions.
The Indian education system poses policy-makers and educators with a unique challenge. It is such a big country that every observation is true, but so is the opposite.

The absence of women is nothing but a black mirror to the problem of gender discrimination at work. Or so if we choose to see it. It is high time to address the elephant in the room.
Forming a bias and making snap judgement is a natural human tendency. And when it is the appraisal time of the year, it is only customary for bosses to judge their teams on the basis of perception, recency, spill over, personal grudges and leniency bias. But the point is how objective is that human decision? Now this is the space where AI can come to the rescue and humans can trust robots to do a fair and square job.
A lot has been spoken about the biggest merger of this season. While Walmart has claimed to create 10 million jobs for Indians and boost the country’s economy, many Indian trade associations think otherwise.
