President Mukherjee urges SRCC to 'set higher benchmarks of excellence'
Stressing the need for industry-academia interface, President Pranab Mukherjee, lauded the efforts of the founders of Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) in New Delhi who had been giving the 'real life industry exposure to teachers as well as students' since its inception. He urged the SRCC to 'set higher benchmarks of excellence'.

President Mukherjee addressed the inaugural ceremony of the 90th Anniversary of Shri Ram College of Commerce today and apprised the audience that global rankings of Indian higher educational institutions remain poor and only three institutions of higher learning in the country have secured places in the world ranking.

Mukherjee expressed his happiness that SRCC had stood the test of time and not only maintained excellence in academics but also produced students who have gone on to excel professionally.

He suggested that currently the emphasis should be on 'research and innovation' to create the 'world class institutions' while drawing the attention to vision of the SRCC founder, Sir Shri Ram to 'create an institution that would train young minds to manage the needs of industry, business and economic administration has been fulfilled comprehensively'.

He advised that the classroom needed to 'complement the realities and complexities of the real world' and apply 'theoretical learning to real life situations and finding workable solutions is the real test of success in academic postulates'.
