नई दिल्ली: लॉ की डिगरी को कई दसकों से भारी लोकप्रियता मिलती आ रही है और इसका कारण यह है कि किसी भी स्ट्रीम (कॉमर्स हो या इंजीनियरिंग) का छात्र आसानी से इसका चयन कर सकता है। इसके अलावा, समाज में करियर और सम्मान के मामले में भी इसका बहुत स्कोप है।

नई दिल्ली स्थित प्रथम एजुकेशन के लॉ विभाग के नेशनल प्रॉडक्ट हेड, श्री अमनदीप राजगोत्रा ने बताया कि,“क्लैट 2019 की परीक्षा हाल ही में सफलतापूर्वक अयोजित की गई थी, जिससे लॉ के कई उम्मीदवारों को उनके पसंद का कॉलेज मिलने में मदद मिली। हालांकि, कुछ अंको के फर्क के कारण कुछ छात्र सफल नहीं हो सके। ऐसे छात्रों के लिए यही सलाह है कि, यह समय निराश होने का नहीं है बल्कि की गई गलतियों को पीछे छोड़ नई रणनीति तैयार करने का समय है। अगली परीक्षा में अभी पूरा 1 साल बाकी है इसलिए तैयारी के लिए भी काफी समय है। प्रारंभिक तैयारी उन्हें क्लैट 2020 में अच्छा प्रदर्शन करने और सफलता पाने में मदद करेगी।”

लॉ प्रवेश परीक्षा यानी कि क्लैट की परीक्षा अब ऑफलाइन हो चुकी है। पेपर के मुख्य भागों में सामान्य ज्ञान, लीगल एप्टीट्यूड, अंग्रेजी, लॉजिकल रीजनिंग और गणित शामिल हैं। लॉ की डिगरी करियर के विभिन्न अवसर प्रदान करती है, जिसके साथ आप पैरालीगल, जासूसी, वकील, जज, सामाजिक कार्य और एमएनसी और बैंक में कॉरपोरेट लॉयर जैसे विकल्पों में अपने पसंद के करियर का चुनाव कर सकते हैं। इतना ही नहीं, आप खुद का बिजनेस भी शुरू कर सकते हैं।

श्री अमनदीप राजगोत्रा ने आगे बताया कि, “इस परीक्षा को क्रैक करने के लिए कठिन परिश्रम बहुत जरूरी है। आखिर वक्त में की गई तैयारी से छात्र को कुछ खास मदद नहीं मिलती इसलिए शुरुआत से ही तैयारी करें और साथ ही उसका रिवीजन भी करते चलें। छात्रों को मॉक टेस्ट सीरीज को नियमित रूप से हल करना चाहिए। यह उनकी समझ का विस्तार करता है और चीजों को याद रखने में भी आसानी होती है। बच्चों को हंसमुख और शांत वातावरण में रखना चाहिए क्योंकि यह वातावरण उसे सफलता का रास्ता दिखाने में एक महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभाता है। नियमित करंट अफयर्स की तैयारी करते चलें। यदि आप अभी से तैयारी शुरू कर देंगे और निरंतर प्रयास करेंगे तो आपको अपना सपना पूरा करने से कोई नहीं रोक सकता है।”

एक छात्र के लिए 12वीं की बोर्ड परीक्षा पर ध्यान देना और साथ ही प्रवेश परीक्षा की तैयारी करना बहुत जरूरी है। छात्रों के लिए दोनों परीक्षाओं के बीच संतुलन बनाकर रखना आवश्यक हो जाता है क्योंकि एक अंको के आधार पर कॉलेज में प्रवेश दिलाती है तो दूसरी प्रवेश परीक्षा के आधार पर एक बेहतरीन संस्थान में पढ़ने का मौका देती है।

  • IIT Delhi Industry Day laid emphasis on investing in innovation-led economy to develop India’s competitive advantage
  • 200 innovative product prototypes showcased at Industry Day by IIT Delhi researchers
  • New CSR Funding policy decision to boost research funding at IITs

New Delhi: Stressing on the need to strengthen industry-academia linkages to boost growth, the 3rd edition of IIT Delhi Industry Day opened here today. Distinguished speakers at the inaugural session acknowledged the need to accelerate investment in innovation-led economy to boost growth and develop competitive advantage for India in the global market.

Chief Guest at the Industry Day, Dr. V. K. Paul, Member, NITI Aayog inaugurated the day-long event at IIT Delhi. He was joined by Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi,Prof. Anurag S.Rathore, Dean, Corporate Relations and other senior IITD functionaries.

The inaugural session was attended by business leaders, research community, delegates from Finland and Japan and IIT Delhi faculty.

Addressing the inaugural session Dr. V.K. Paul, Member, NITI Aayog, said, India’s national progress is crucially dependent on the science we discover and understand, on technologies we can create and manufacture, and on products our people can use and access. It needs innovation – both frugal and disruptive – and this discourse is to be imbibed by us in our system.”

He gave an example of the medical devices market, which is currently worth USD 7-8 billion in India. “Seventy five per cent of this demand is met by imports. However, considering the talent and potential India has, this market can be worth US$ 50 billion in India; and only innovation can achieve that,” he said.

Dr. Paul said that government programmes like Ayushman Bharat will be innovator’s delight and broaden the scope of innovation in public health delivery.

He also stressed on the idea of launching exchange programmes between medical institutions like AIIMS and IIT-Delhi on critical health issues, which can support immersion programmes of IIT Delhi.

Speaking at the inaugural session, Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi, called upon the industry to collaborate with the academia. “The role of the industry primarily was to develop products, and that of the academia to focus on education and research. But that’s changing now. Academia is expected to develop products through innovation. Innovation has now been added to our mandate in a major way. Academia and industry need to collaborate on research and innovation on products which can benefit society.”

Prof. Rao added, “IIT Delhi is not only looking for collaborations with the industry but IIT Delhi also wants the industry to treat them as part of their innovation ecosystem.”

He also said that very soon there would be more diploma & certificate programmes for the industry that can be pursued online from IIT Delhi. This will open up opportunities for private companies to collaborate with research community of IIT Delhi.

He also thanked the government for expanding the scope of corporate spending under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) norms, “which will boost research funding in institutions like IIT Delhi and promote collaborations between the academia and the industry.”

Prof. Anurag S. Rathore, Dean, Corporate Relations, IIT Delhi, said, “A productive academic-industry relationship is the necessary foundation for the long term development of India. Academia needs to step up to demonstrate their scientific and engineering capabilities as well as their ability to channel their ability into focused development of products and technologies. Industry too needs to play a critical role in partnering on the co-development and later in commercialization of these outcomes. The objective of this year’s Industry Day is to demonstrate technical research capabilities, forge new collaborative relationships and further strengthen our existing partnerships.”

Industry Day 2019 witnessed a placement session organized exclusively for the institute’s Ph.D. students in which 17 companies interviewed more than 70 students.

The IIT Delhi research community showcased large number of research-based prototypes and posters to industry leaders who attended the event. 

The flagship event of the institute witnessed discussions and deliberations by industry experts and academia on five thematic sessions that include Clean Energy for Sustainable Economy and Environment, Sustainable Medical Technologies, Emerging Nano and Advanced Materials, Sustainable Environment, and Make in India.

The five thematic sessions and a session on “Women in Science” during Industry Day 2019 brought together more than 500 experts from Industry and 100 IIT Delhi faculty members.

विधि सेंटर फॉर लीगल पालिसी की रिपोर्ट में भारत की जिला अदालतों की

बुनियादी व्यवस्थाओं की खामियों का खुलासा हुआ

*

  इसे ट्वीट किया : सामान स्कैन करने की सुविधा नदारद, कोर्टरूम की कमी, पूर्ण सुसज्जित प्रसाधन कक्ष नहीं विधि सेंटर फॉर लीगल पालिसी के अनुसार ऐसी है भारतीय जिला अदालतों की दुर्दशा

●       अध्ययन के दौरान 665 जिला अदालत परिसरों का सर्वेक्षण और 6650 वादी-प्रतिवादियों से बातचीत

●       दिल्ली (90%), केरल (84%), मेघालय (75%), हरियाणा (70%) और हिमाचल प्रदेश (70%) राज्यों में सर्वश्रेष्ठ कामकाज होता है, वहीं बिहार (26%) और मणिपुर (29%) में हालात सबसे बुरे

●       सर्वेक्षण में शामिल केवल 11% अदालत परिसरों में सामानों की स्कैनिंग की सुविधा है, जबकि 71% में अग्निशामक और 48% में आपात निकास संकेत उपलब्ध हैं

●       केवल 40% अदालती परिसरों में पूर्ण सुसज्जित प्रसाधन कक्ष है. गोवा, झारखण्ड, उत्तर प्रदेश और मिजोरम में उन  पूर्ण अदालतों की संख्या सबसे कम है जहां सुसज्जित प्रसाधन कक्ष उपलब्ध हैं. देश भर में 100 जिला अदालत भवन ऐसे हैं जहां महिला प्रसाधन कक्ष साफ़ नदारद है

●       केवल 39% राज्य ऐसे हैं जहां के अदालत परिसरों में में कैंटीन, बैंक शाखा, फोटोकॉपी, टाइपिस्ट, नोटरी, आदि जैसी सभी सेवाएं उपलब्ध हैं. जो सुविधा सबसे कम जगहों पर है, उनमें प्राथमिक उपचार सेवा (59%), डाकघर (63%) और बैंक शाखा (65%) सम्मिलित हैं

●       अनेक जिला अदालतों की वेबसाइट या तो निष्क्रिय हैं या काम करने के लायक नहीं हैं

नई दिल्ली, 1 अगस्त 2019 : अग्रणी और निष्पक्ष लीगल थिंक टैंक, विधि सेंटर फॉर लीगल पालिसी ने आज अपनी ताजा रिपोर्ट को सार्वजनिक किया. बिल्डिंग बेटर कोर्ट्स (सर्वेइंग द इंफ्रास्ट्रक्चर ऑफ़ इंडियाज डिस्ट्रिक्ट कोर्ट्स) नामक यह रिपोर्ट टाटा ट्रस्ट्स के सहयोग से तैयार की गयी है. रिपोर्ट में विभिन्न जिला अदालतों में उपलब्ध सुविधाओं में अंतर का विश्लेषण करते हुए इनकी हालत सुधारने और भारत में वादी-प्रतिवादियों के लिए न्याय की सामान्य सुलभता से जुडी मुख्य अनुशंसाओं का खुलासा किया गया है.

रिपोर्ट के बारे में विधि सेंटर फॉर लीगल पालिसी की रिसर्च फेलो और रिपोर्ट की सह-लेखिका, सुश्री रेशमा शेखर ने कहा कि, “न्यायिक सुधार के सवाल पर सार्वजनिक चर्चाएँ ज्यादातर लंबित मुकदमों, खाली पड़े न्यायिक पदों तक सीमित रह जातीं हैं, जबकि अदालतों की मूलभूत भौतिक सुविधाओं की हालत जैसे महत्वपूर्ण मुद्दे उपेक्षित रह जाते हैं. अगर अदालत की बुनियादी सुविधाओं की चर्चा कभी होती भी है तो इसका स्वरुप अधिकांशतः मात्रात्मक यानी अदालती कक्षों और अदालत परिसरों की संख्या से ही जुड़ा होता है, उनकी गुणवत्ता से नहीं. इस रिपोर्ट में वादी-प्रतिवादी की नजर से अदालत के स्थानों का मूल्यांकन किया गया है और यह भारत की अदालतों में उपलब्ध गुणवत्ता का एक नायाब अध्ययन है.”

सर्वेक्षण मुख्य रूप से अदालत की मूलभूत सुविधाओं के भौतिक एवं डिजिटल पहलुओं पर केन्द्रित है और इसमें 665 जिला अदालतों का गुणात्मक आंकलन किया गया है और 6650 वादी-प्रतिवादियों के साक्षात्कार लिए गए हैं. सर्वेक्षण का उद्देश्य अदालती स्थानों के अभिगम हेतु सार्वजनिक परिवहन की सुलभता, अदालत परिसर में अलग-अलग स्थानों को खोजने में आसानी, प्रतीक्षालय, सफाई, सुरक्षा, सुविधायें आदि जैसे अनेक मानदंडों पर यूजर के अनुभव के बारे में पता लगाना था. सर्वेक्षण के बाद जो आंकड़ें उभर कर आये हैं, वे दुखद हैं.

रिपोर्ट के कुछ प्रमुख निष्कर्ष इस प्रकार हैं –

  1. लोकेशन के मामले में जिला अदालतों तक पहुंच 100% नहीं है : नैशनल कोर्ट मैनेजमेंट सिस्टम्स (एनसीएमएस) की रिपोर्ट में अनुशंसा की गयी है कि अदालत परिसरों को ऐसी जगह होना चाहिए जहां सार्वजनिक परिवहन से पहुंचना आसान हो और पार्किंग की पर्याप्त सुविधा उपलब्ध हो. 539 अदालत परिसरों में से केवल 81% में सार्वजनिक परिवहन के सहारे पहुंचा जा सकता है, जबकि 532 परिसरों यानी 80% में निर्दिष्ट पार्किंग एरिया उपलब्ध हैं.
  2. अदालत परिसर में वादी-प्रतिवादियों के लिए रास्ता समझना एक बड़ी समस्या है : अदालती परिसरों में बहुत ही कम वादी-प्रतिवादी खुद ही रास्ता का पता लगा पाते हैं और अधिकाँश लोगों को वकीलों से पूछना पड़ता है. केवल 20% जिला अदालतों में गाइड मैप और 45% में हेल्पडेस्क मौजूद हैं.
  3. निर्दिष्ट प्रतीक्षालय : वादी-प्रतिवादियों और जनसाधारण के लिए केवल 54% जिला अदालत परिसरों में प्रतीक के लिए स्थान निर्दिष्ट है.
  4. वादी-प्रतिवादियों, आगंतुकों और वकीलों के लिए अलग-अलग और लैंगिक आधार पर पृथक सुव्यवस्थित टॉयलेट : यह एक पूर्व-अपेक्षित सुविधा है, किन्तु वेकल 80% अदालती परिसरों में ही प्रसाधन कक्ष (वाशरूम) है और उनमें से भी केवल 40% पूरी तरह उपयोग के लायक हैं. लगभग 100 जिला अदालतों में महिलाओं के लिए प्रसाधन कक्ष बिलकुल नहीं है.
  5. अदालतों के परिसर तक आसान पहुंच होनी चाहिए और इसकी बनावट सार्वजनिक एवं सुविधाजनक होनी चाहिए : किन्तु केवल 27% अदालत भवनों में रैंप और/या लिफ्ट है. केवल 11% परिसरों में ही दिव्यांग व्यक्तियों के लिए निर्दिष्ट वाशरूम है, और बिल्ट-इन विजुअल एड की सुविधा केवल 2% अदालतों में है.
  6. केवल 39% राज्यों में सम्पूर्ण सेवा वाले अदालत परिसर हैं : बैंक शाखा (65%), डाकघर (63%), प्राथमिक उपचार सेवा (59%) जैसी सुविधायें सबसे कम जगहों पर हैं, जबकि फोटोकॉपीअर (100%), टाइपिस्ट (98%) और स्टाम्प विक्रेता (97%) की सुविधा अधिकतर जगहों पर उपलब्ध है.
  7. न्यायाधीशों, प्रशासनिक कर्मचारियों, वकीलों, वादी-प्रतिवादियों, गवाहों, कैदियों और विचाराधीन आरोपितों की सुरक्षा अत्‍यधिक महत्‍वपूर्ण होनी चाहिए : यह अति महत्वपूर्ण पहलू है. लेकिन सामान की स्कैनिंग की व्यवस्था केवल 11% अदालत परिसरों में है, जबकि अग्निशामक 71% परिसरों में और आपातकालीन निकास के संकेत 48% परिसरों में उपलब्ध हैं.

AK Mishra, Founder and CEO, Chanakya IAS Academy, enlightens aspirants upon the 10 common mistakes  they do and the ways to rectify it.

1. NOT following the curriculum – one of the biggest mistakes the aspirants commit is not to follow the syllabus given by the UPSC. Many of them start their preparation without referring to the syllabus and within no time find themselves in ‘no progress zone’.Though the topics may be vast, but not completely unlimited. CSE aspirants need to break this myth as this may prove fatal in the long run costing you with time, money, energy and resource. In their course of preparation, consider the UPSC syllabus as your roadmap to start with and continue referring it at all points of preparation.

2. Missing to go through previous years – Aspirants donot realize that the previous year papers can help them prepare in accordance with the latest trend followed by the UPSC. While preparing, refer to previous years after each step in order to co-relate witht hetopics finished, as this is a good indicator of whether you are moving in the right direction or not.

3. Piling up irrelevant books – Flooding the room completely wth UPSC preparation books does not always land you in success. For effective preparation, choose handpicked books that are genuinely relevant. Though there are several market place in the city that is the hub for such preparation books with various authors and publications available, scrutinize for the relevant book to idealize your preparation. It is preferable for the aspirants to seek advise from their seniors, experienced mentors or reliable sources before going for a book purchase.

4. Not getting basic reference – Most of the aspirants do this by going for heavy weight books instead of getting the basics clear. The NCERT books upto 12 standard are a good source of knowledge to initiate steadily. This is the most atomic sized mistake that can compel your preparations to fall.

5.  Writing skills deficiency – the mains exams is the criteria for the selection process that includes writing essays. One lacking writing skills may not be well efficient in clearing theselection process. The aspirants should be well equipped with facts and wisdom, fluent flow of knowledge in a very precise and skillful manner. Being one of the toughest task, if not rectified on time, failure is guaranteed. Aspirants should be focusing on exam pattern oriented writing rigorously rather than blogging to improve writing and typing skills. 

6. Way of Choosing optional paper – Aspirants opt for the optional paper based on the subject scores and marking trends, length and extent of the curriculum and subject that covers almost the GS paper. These insights and estimations can prove fatal during results. Optional paper should be chosen in such a way that it should also suit the aspirants interest and inclination towards it.

7. NOT perceiving the bottomline of the newspapers – if the newspapers and the magazines are not understood about ‘what and how to read’, the results will yield low in the long run. A newspaper has three segments from an exam point of view – events (that gives facts and figures), Issues (provides views and reviews that helps in developing an individuals understanding and opinion on contemporary subjects.) and gossips. In addition articles on various other segments also helps aspirants to frame and write well structured essays. Hence utilize the newspapers with persistent efforts.

8. Improper analysis of your strengths – SWOT analysis is  undertaken to identify the internal strengths and weaknesses, as well as external opportunities and threats. As the nature of the UPSC exam demands high dynamism and adaptability, candidates miss to analyse their inbuilt strengths nad weakness along with the posing opportunity nad threats. This takes them in a wrong direction during preparation leading to loss of tempo and zeal. Aspirants should therefore keep a consistent grip overtheir strong areas and atleast a loose fist over weaker section.

9. Not prioritizing the task – improper management of time can lead to undesirableoutcomes. As aspirants put years together for UPSC preparation, managing time and prioritizing their work is must. Any ambition without a time frame is nothing more than a fantasy. Understand the difference between urgent and important to achieve fruitful benefits.

10. Circumventing regular reviewing – To retain the information stored during the preparation it is necessary to revise consistently. There has to be a very well maintained cohesion between what you read and ‘revise’ what have you read till date. Video Lectures, Subject Audios and Group Discussions (Group Study) can prove to be a boon for an aspirant of UPSC CSE.

आपने एक लोकप्रिय विज्ञापन के कथन को अवश्य सुन रखा होगा, एक आइडिया जो जिंदगी बदल दे. कुछ महान वैज्ञानिकों के प्रत्यक्ष ज्ञान ने साधारण घटनाओं को कुछ महान सिद्धांतों में सूत्रबद्ध कर मानव सभ्यता की दिशा बदल दी.एक सेब का गिरना खाद्य पदार्थ की आसान उपलब्धता हो सकता है, लेकिन न्यूटन के शक्तिशाली मस्तिष्क ने इसे भौतिकशास्त्र में महान सिद्धांतों का द्वार खोल दिया. सफलता का रहस्य मनुष्यों के विचारों के अंदर निहित होता है. एक आइडिया या विचार व्यक्ति को सफल या असफल बना सकती है. एक आइडिया आप की जिंदगी कैसे बदल देगा, आइए जानें प्रख्यात सक्सेस गुुरु ए के मिश्रा से.हमारी सोच सभी सफलताओं, समस्त सांसारिक प्राप्तियों, सभी महान खोजों एवं आविष्कारों तथा समस्त उपलब्धियों का मौलिक स्रोत होती है. हमारे विचार हमारे चरित्र, हमारे करियर और वास्तव में हमारे दैनंदिन जीवन का निर्धारक होते हैं. विचार सभी कार्यों के पीछे के मार्गनिर्देशक बल होते हैं और हमारे कार्य अनजाने में हमें सफलता या असफलता की ओर ले जाते हैं. यह सच ही कहा गया है कि विचार मनुष्य को बना देते हैं या तोड़ देते हैं.आइडिया अर्थात् विचार हमारे सोचने की प्रक्रिया से संबंधित होती है. सोचने की प्रक्रिया और जीवन के अनुभव हमारी स्मृति का निर्माण करते हैं, जो मानव साफ्टवेयर की भांति कार्य करती है. जो हमारे साथ घटित होता है वह हमारा अनुभव नहीं होता, बल्कि हम उन घटनाओं के साथ क्या करते हैं वे हमारे अनुभव कहलाते हैं. दूसरे शब्दों में, हमारे अनुभव हमारे जीवन की विविध घटनाओं द्वारा सृजित उद्यीपनों के प्रति हमारी प्रतिक्रियाएं हैं. आने वाली घटनाओं के प्रति हमारी प्रतिक्रियाएं समान अवस्थाओं में हमारे अतीत के अनुभवों पर आधारित होते हैं. हमारे सोचने का तरीका हमारी स्मृति के सृजन और हमारी मनोवृत्ति को प्रभावित करने में अति महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका अदा करता है.वास्तव में, सोच स्मृति का सृजन करती है और स्मृति मनोवृत्ति का निर्माण करती है, जो अंतत: सफलता अथवा जीवन की ऊंचाई को निर्धारित करती है. वस्तुत: सोच मानव स्मृति के सृजन की प्रक्रिया है. हम जो कुछ भी हैं, वह अब तक की हमारी सोच का परिणाम है. प्रत्येक शब्द जिसे हम सोचते हैं, वे हमारे जीवन का निर्माण करते हैं. हमारा जीवन हमारी सोच और सोच प्रक्रिया का परिणाम है. सफलता का रहस्य मनुष्यों के विचारों के अंदर निहित होता है. विचार कमजोर व्यक्ति को मजबूत और मजबूत व्यक्ति को और मजबूत बनाते हैं. हमारे समस्त क्रियाकलाप, यथा-खाना, कपड़े पहनना, वाहन चलाना, खेलना आदि सभी हमारे विचार से प्रारंभ होते हैं. हमारे चलने, बोलने, पहनावे और स्वयं की प्रस्तुति के तरीके से हमारे सोचने का तरीका प्रतिबिंत होता है. हम जो कुछ अंदर होते हैं, वही बाहर प्रदर्शित करते हैं.हम अपने नए विचार के उत्पाद होते हैं, हम जो कुछ बनने का विश्वास करते हैं हम वही बनते हैं. दूसरे शब्दों में कहें तो जैसी हमारी सोच होगी, वैसे ही हमारे कार्य होंगे और जैसे हमारे कार्य होंगेे, वैसी ही सफलता हमारे हाथ लगेगी.महान धर्म गुरुओं द्वारा यह विश्वास किया जाता है कि यह ब्रह्मांड, ब्रह्मांडीय मस्तिष्क की सोच द्वारा सृजित किया गया है. यह ब्रह्मांडीय मस्तिष्क सूचनाओं का महा राजपथ है, जो सभी मानव मस्तिष्कों को एक साथ जोड़ता है. यही कारण है कि हम एक दूसरे के विचारों पर प्रतिक्रिया व्यक्त करते हैं, भले ही हम शरीर संपर्क में न हों. हम उसे अंतज्र्ञान या छठीय ज्ञानेंद्रीय कहते हैं. हम बहुत हद तक दूसरों द्वारा समाचार पत्र, चलचित्र, रेडियो और आकस्मिक भेंट मुलाकातों के दौरान एक छोटे से विचार के माध्यम से भी एक अलग ढांचे में ढ़ाल दिए जाते हैं. हमारे ऊपर हर समय लगातार विभिन्न डिग्री के विचारों की बमबारी होती रहती है. इनमें से कु छ हमारे अंदर की आवाज के साथ मेल खा सकते हैं और महान दृष्टि प्रदान कर सकते हैं.

According to a recent report, 90% of data available today has been created in the last 2 years. Social web and smart phones have revolutionized the way the internet is being used. With more than 4 billion people around the world using the internet and generating tons of user data; governments, corporate, brands etc are getting bamboozled on how to utilize the data for more efficient functional and financial decision making. The increasing use of new innovative technologies like AI, ML, VR etc. are making life easier and information more accessible to the people. With more than 70% of Indian companies deploying AI enabled solutions by end of 2019 there will be a huge increase in demand for AI and Data Science experts. Thus, Data Sciences and AI will soon be the next big technology expertise in demand by companies across sectors. There is, therefore, a gaping need for Institutes offering full-fledged degree programs to fulfil the demand of manpower. Students often ponder as to which Institutions in India can provide such contemporary courses designed to cater to the Industry needs. Unfortunately, there are handful Institutes in India offering B. Tech. or M. Tech. degree programs in these specializations though realization has dawned of late. It is important to note that capsule courses on Data Science and AI offered by training institutes often do not suffice the industry requirement.

This is precisely the right time to plan a career in Data Science & AI at the right Institute.

Top reasons for choosing a career and Institution are:

Growing adoption of Artificial Intelligence & Big Data Analytics: New technologies are now making it easier to perform increasingly sophisticated data analytics on a very large and diverse datasets. This is evident as the report from The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) shows, many companies are using some form of advanced analytics on Big Data, for Business Intelligence, Predictive Analytics and Data Mining tasks.
Huge Job Opportunities & Meeting the Skill Gap: Prospective job seekers have numerous opportunities. It is the fastest growing job on LinkedIn and is predicted to create 11.5 million jobs by 2026. This makes AI &Data Science a highly employable job sector. A McKinsey study states that the US will face a shortage of about 190,000 data scientists and 1.5 million managers and analysts who can understand and make decisions using Big Data by 2018.
Abundance of Positions: The demand for skilled Data Scientists and AI professionals is constantly increasing across industries like banking, healthcare, Finance, Insurance, media & entertainment, telecom, e-commerce among others. The demand of professional outweighs the supply currently.
Highly Paid Career: According to Glassdoor, Data Scientists make an average of $116,100 per year. The demand for individuals with AI skills like deep learning and machine learning is sought after in almost every industrial sector. This makes Data Science and Artificial Intelligence a highly lucrative career option.
Data Science and Artificial Intelligence can Save Lives: Healthcare sector has been greatly improved because of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. With the advent of machine learning, it has been made easier to detect early-stage tumors. Also, many other health-care industries are using Data Science to help their clients. Students interested in a career that is satisfying, challenging and at the same time helps achieve something for the community this is a great option

There are some IIITs who have floated degree programs either in Data Science or AI. But there is one such institution is IIIT – Naya Raipur, which is the India’s first institute to offer a combination of the both specializations: Data Science and AI at UG and PG level i.e. B. Tech. and M. Tech. Students graduating even in CSE from IIIT Naya Raipur have bagged jobs in data analytics companies with lucrative salaries because of the richness of its curricula with AI and data analytics.

While there are plenty of jobs in data science & artificial intelligence in India and abroad, there is an acute shortage of top tech talent from reputable Institutions with the necessary skills. IIIT Naya Raipur promises to fill this void with its project oriented and industry designed curricula. It is important to note here that the highest paid jobs in the industry are for the roles as Data Engineer, Decision-Maker, Analyst, Statistician, Applied Machine Learning Engineer, Data Scientist and Social Scientist. ISHAN GUPTA, MD, UDACITY INDIA says, “There has been a rising adoption of data science and artificial intelligence technologies across multiple industries such as healthcare, finance, education, retail, media, advertising and education. The demand for these sectors has been rising because both domestic and international companies are relying upon India for the right talent.”
