Executive Director, Narayana Group of Educational Institutions


“Technology will play a very key role in the education sector in India and it will solve 50-60% of fundamental problems (such as personalized remediation teaching quality and transparency) faced by the sector. Having said that we have to be very practical about this and if we think that tech will solve the problem overnight then its wrong. The problem will be solved slowly steadily and over a period of time. Today the education sector is in dire need of private capital however some investors are worried about unclear regulations but prefer investing more towards edtech companies as these do not fall under any regulations. The future of the education sector seems very bright but at the same time government should be more flexible and have the motive of Service & Excellence. We should also adopt western systems where private education groups are managing the educational institutes and the quality of education is top notch.“
