Around 25000 IT graduates complete their education every year in the country, however, only 5000-6000 graduates get jobs due to a gap in industry and academia linkages.
Under the initiative, IT-related course will also be offered through a web of Virtual University across the country, especially to the youth of far-flung areas.
The Ministry has almost finalized a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Finland University to make an international standard Virtual University.
