  30. 30. Full time Industry Institution Interaction cells are established by the institutes, industry associations and big industries. These cells should clearly define and publish the goals and key performance areas of interaction. These cells should operate in Single Window concept. 30
  31. 31. Curriculums are required & are more flexible so that a student could if required, work in industry for considerable period of time instead of doing some courses in college only but still gain the required credits. Industry involvement in curriculum designs review will be helpful in this process. 31

  39. 39. Ideally the exchange of industry and institute experts is required i.e. the academia should work in industry for a fixed term intermittently and industry experts should work in institutions. 39
