In conversation with Dr.Srinivas Chunduru – Founder – Vans Group (Investing |Skilling| Advisory)
What is your opinion about the budget?
This has been a very positive union budget announcement for the Education sector. With focus of creating 100 more Sainik schools through a partnership model, universities in underrepresented geographies and ear marking budgets of Rs 50,000 crore over 5 years for research under the NRF, this sector is bound to see positive growth. For higher education, the announcement of creating a framework and legislation will go a long way to create structural benefits to the higher education space. The focus on education reforms coupled with bold measures to encourage startups will help a lot of Edu-tech companies to grow and emerge.
