Views of Mr. Ritesh Kumar, Country Lead for Wiley in India on Education Budget


National, February 02, 2023: It is encouraging to see the Indian Government’s strong and rounded commitment towards promoting research and innovation, education, literacy, skilling, employability and job creation in the Union Budget 2023. This will truly help leverage India’s demographic dividend and build a strong, competitive, and future-ready youth.

We are particularly excited to see the special focus laid on setting up facilities for research and centers of excellence. The establishment of National Digital Library along with availing non-curricular books in regional languages is another step in the right direction. It will improve literacy among children and adolescents. Aligned with the Government’s vision of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’, we are happy to see the government’s continued and strong impetus on skilling, employability, and job creation. It will help our youth unlock their full potential.

At Wiley, we remain committed to supporting academic and scientific research and career-connected education. We look forward to working with the government and other stakeholders to help achieve these goals. We believe that a strong focus on research, education, and skilling will help drive economic growth and social development in India and we are proud to be a part of this journey.
