Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi will be offering rural internships to its BTech students this summer. Students will be sent to villages to experience the problems and understand rural governance. "The idea is to not just publish papers but solve real-world problems. Being a public-funded institution, it is important for us to connect with the public. Our students come here after studying hard to crack the entrance examination. In the process, they have not been exposed to some of the real problems in the society, particularly, in rural areas. Through the internship, students will be sent to villages to spend time with farmers and experience first-hand the problems that they are facing and understand rural governance."- Prof. V. Ramgopal Rao, IIT delhi.
