Online Lecture by Prof. Priyanka Kaushal (NCI-UBA, IIT Delhi)  

Dr. Priyanka Kaushal informed PI coordinators about the UBA program, its vision and aim. She said that UBA has started to grow the responsibility of colleges towards our community. Its vision is to develop technology in the villages and also to use the available technology for their development. She showed success stories of the Participating Institutes – UBA for the encouragement of the participants of this workshop. She encouraged the audience by saying that work until the District Collector and villagers assure that you are doing something for the village development. She also solved various queries and problems of the present coordinators.




In the introductory speech, Dr. T.R. Patil said that there are a number of problems before the participating institutes but all these problems teach new things. Along with the technical universities, non-technical universities have also joined UBA which helps in the development of the region.



The representative of the District Collector, Shri. Rahul Gaikwad told that while working with UBA we are trying to rise from the threshold to the sky. To fulfill the hunger of knowledge, UBA has taken the help of the Universities. He added that all students should work in the villages together to sort out the village problems and solve it to develop the villages.

Dr. R. Manoj Kumar, UGC Joint Secretary said that, UGC and UBA are partners and working in collaboration with each other. In social development, villages are far behind. Hence, to reduce this development gap between city and villages, the government has started this programme. The educational institutes should be relevant to the society and not just remain as degree providers.



The representative of NCI IIT Delhi Ms. Bharti Jasrotia in her guidance told that all the higher educated youths of the country are leaving the country and settling abroad. Thus, it is important to stop the migration of the youth because our country has more of these young minds. The government initiated this program with this view. The program was first started to only IITs and IIM and now it is open to all the higher educational institutes of India.



Hon. Vice Chancellor Prof. (Dr) Pramod Yewle thanked UBA for selecting Dr. B.A.M.U., Aurangabad as a regional center for UBA. He proceeds that the condition of the villages in India is not so good, hence the youth of the villages are shifting in the city for work. If the villages are developed, then the youth will remain in their villages and in this way we can develop our villages. It would be possible only when we provide these young people opportunities to proceed in life in their native areas itself.

After this, Unnat Bharat Abhiyan Project Assistant Ms. Amrapali Tribhuvan offered a vote of thanks for the inaugural program.
