New Delhi/IBNS: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, addressed the IIT-Banaras Engineering College's “Alumni Awards of Excellence 2021-22” in New Delhi and stated that proper development of knowledge and skills along with resources was imperative for building a civilised society.

On the occasion, the Lt Governor paid tributes and remembered Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji and also extended his best wishes to those who received the Alumni Award of Excellence.

The Lt Governor said that the credit for the country’s first industrial policy goes to Mahamana, as he laid the foundation of technical education in India.

“After tireless efforts, Mahamana established the Banaras Engineering College (BENCO) in 1919. Today, that small engineering campus of BHU has grown into a prominent institution in the field of technical education from where thousands of famous personalities have completed their higher education and played an important role in the economic and educational progress of our country," the LG said.

Speaking on the role of alumni of higher education institutions in the era of globalization, the Lt Governor said they are critical to the success of higher education institutions, as they build and develop the institute’s brand.

Alumni, whether from the field of engineering or science, have a great responsibility to eliminate the digital divide to bring villages and cities closer to each other, he added.

The Lt Governor also underlined that the relationship between universities and students is a lifelong commitment and in this mutual relationship alumni are a resource that plays a more meaningful role with changing times.
