University Day 2019
VIT Chancellor Dr.G.Viswanathan on Saturday urged Government to provide free quality education to all children in the country.
Delivering the presidential address at the University Day and Annual Sports Day function held at VIT, Vellore on April 6,2019, Dr.G.Viswanathan said that 40 countries in the world offer higher education free to students, of which countries like Norway, Sweden, Germany, France,etc, provide free education to foreign students too.
"It may not be possible for us to provide free education to foreign students, but we must be able to give free education to our own children. We have suggested that if it is not possible immediately let us begin with free education to girls now, later on we can expand with others also,” he said.
