Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal on Wednesday said that the faculty of any academic institution is not responsible for a vacuum in research. He said this while commenting on the utterances of Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh who opined the country's premier technological institutions and management academies are not of world-class. Sibal highlighted the need for giving more attention to the post-graduate courses in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the country's premier academies in engineering and humanities and cited how the lack of opportunity for research among post graduate students has prompted them to go overseas to pursue research and further studies.
