Veerappa Moily on the way forward

Update: The interview is available online.

Veerappa Moily, Chairman of the Oversight Committee that will recommend how the new reservation policy is to be implemented, says a lot of interesting things in an interview with Shekhar Gupta. Just look at the list of ideas that he says are under consideration by his Committee:

Increasing faculty salaries beyond the limits imposed by the Pay Commission, pushing for more public-private partnership in the education sector, ensuring almost a three-fold increase in higher education enrolment and reinforcing “global” brand equity of institutions of excellence.

I have already commented about Moily's management jargon in another interview. There is a bit of it in this interview too:

“I am not just going to fill (the) potholes but build a knowledge superhighway,’’ said Moily.
