No sector is left out from reforms."He said that India is witnessing a sea change in the way it works, adding that "things we thought could never happen are being delivered at a great speed.""There was a time when a gathering like this would have included alumni from 5-6 IITs, but the number today stands at 2 dozen. At the same time, we have ensured that the brand of IITs has only become stronger. We're committed to strengthen science and tech education in India," he said.

"We have been working with various countries in SE Asia and Europe in this area. Our aim is to ensure that our youngsters get an international platform to showcase their skills and learn from best practices globally," the Prime Minister added.
