Liberal arts universities on par with IITs, IIMs are next on Modi governments education plan
The Narendra Modi government wants to establish public universities for liberal arts education on par with the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs). These institutions will focus on multi-disciplinary research and education.
