Bengaluru, May 9: Dr C N Ashwath Narayan, Minister for Higher Education and IT/BT, promises support and cooperation from the State Government to the would extend all cooperation if the Uber Company comes forward to set up a Centre of Excellence (CoE) with regard to the transport sector in Karnataka.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Uber Global Tech Centre in Bengaluru on Monday, he said problems pertaining to transport were the major issues in all the cities including Bengaluru.

The transport sector aggregator Uber Company should think about setting up a CoE for Transport under its CSR activities, he suggested.

Dr Narayan said finding solutions for traffic congestion in bigger cities is the biggest challenge. However, companies like Uber have raised the hope of successfully overcoming this with the effective intervention of technology, he remarked.

In recent days, sustainability has gained importance, he said and pointed out that it is expected that all the businesses and services being provided should be sustainable.

Even, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also emphasizing sustainability. It has been aimed that the country should be completely on the path of sustainable development by 2050.

Earlier, development meant the destruction of nature. But, now, technological development is enabling sustainable development, the minister said.

The knowledge one gains should be translated and transferred in such a way to become useful for the last man of the society.

The National Education Policy has been framed keeping this in mind. This will bring a paradigm shift in the teaching-learning process from Nursery to Post Graduation, besides ensuring skilled human resources for industries, Dr Narayan explained.
