New Delhi:President Pratibha Patil Sunday suggested that a committee of governors be set up to evolve mutually beneficial models for a farmer-industry partnership, focusing on rain-fed area farming.

In her concluding remarks at the 43rd Conference of Governors here, the president said: "The committee would make suitable recommendations and would formulate a concept paper to bring about an 'Evergreen Revolution' to harness the full potential of the agriculture sector."

She said "there was a recommendation by governors to provide an enabling climate for them to discharge their statutory duties as chancellors of state universities in a more positive and effective manner".

The president said that "linkage of vocational education to industry should be attempted in India between ITIs (industiral training institutes) and vocational training institutes to create a dynamic partnership with the manufacturing and service sectors of the industry".

She said that infrastructure in around 600 universities, which are state or centrally funded, could be upgraded to accommodate more students without compromising on the quality of education.
