Speaking at the event, K Sanjay Murthy, Union higher education secretary, said, "We are taking the lead in enhancing digital public infrastructure, evident in projects like SWAYAM and DISHA at the school level. One of the major highlights during India's G20 presidency was the focus on research and the mobility of students and researchers."

The G20 platform, much like our institution, stands as a beacon for collaboration and global awareness", he added.
