New Delhi: Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani Saturday said that a new credit transfer system from class 9 up till the Ph.D level will be presented Nov 11.

"You will be pleased to know that on Nov 11 we will be presenting to the nation a credit transfer system from class 9 onward up to PhD, which...gives you enough credits to get back into the university system...," she said.

Irani was addressing a gathering of student leaders at Lead On, an inter-school leadership summit organised at the Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar here.

She said that she is trying to evolve a concept called "Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat" (one India, best India) which focuses on changes in education to take India to the next level, and appealed them to chose a five-member body from among themselves to "sit with us on Nov 17 and tell us what students want from India`s new education policy".

The summit, in its seventh year, saw participation from around 41 schools from Delhi and the national capital region.
