Why is it called the K3 Plan or Formula

To signify we need to go back Back to basics. It is also a tribute to Kapil Dev who brought a complete change in Indian Cricket, bowl means bowl fast, and bat means hit big. Essentially, by facing the reality. The 3 in the K3 Plan is because the plan is a three step plan.

India needs many such plans for reaching Modiji’s dream of a 5 Trillion Dollar Economy. (China $12 Trillion, USA $20 Trillion, India $2.6 Trillion – note: should be weighed against population).

NIRF will do the same for India – it will lay the foundation for sustained growth and a qualitative change.

So, all educationists know this, college management know this. Govt. is focused and everyone is NIRF seriously.

Are you?

Here are the details of the K3 Plan:


With the Introduction of NEP and NIRF rank for Engineering Colleges the Govt. has set in the Pyramid system of competition.

In this system, all the colleges in India compete, and 200 top ranked colleges get listed and the first or the top 100 are the special category premium colleges, and they get to be eligible for research grants (which is substantial) and so on. The pool of colleges included are of all categories – Govt. funded, Govt. aided, private, and minority colleges.

The NIRF rank is a comprehensive system, and is evolving continously.

In due course, experts expect it to be gold standard for all colleges and all students and parents will consider this rank to admit their wards.

The beauty of the NIRF system is self declaration. When an Institution does this it is time for self introspection. To meaningfully participate you need to be independent and NOT COPY other colleges in your basics.

The NIRF pyramid system is a fluid system so one college which is in the top 200 may slide off or exit the top 200 if it fails to grow. It is compete – Always. So, the foundation has to be strong and the core strategy has to be sustainable.

The NIRF system is verifiable and wrong and faulty declarations can be verified and penalized. Two colleges have already been penalized. Not naming them here, as I do not want to cause any further damage to them.

However, there are many positives to the system and experts believe all other evaluation systems will be withdrawn over a period of time.

Two important outcomes which are evaluated in the NIRF rank are Startups and Jobs.

My services are aimed to increase startups and also train your students to quickly get a job, if possible in the third year of their course.

This will result in a higher NIRF rank and trigger other goals such as interaction with Industry and leading Institutions in India and World.

What are the highlights of K3 consultancy services?

Let me briefly tell you about myself.

I am techno business consultant.

Which simply means, I create solutions and plan of action for targets or goals, for:

  • Startups
  • Companies (Defense)
  • Engineering colleges

The solutions and plan of action, I create are technology driven, and result focused.

This translates to – you will see technology as the foundation in the solution, and steps linked to results and targets, which becomes obvious, as we run through the plan of action. All you need to do is be patient, unassuming, and wait for the first few steps of the K Formula to roll out.

Further, the K Formula has the following advantages:

  • Colleges with existing infrastructure stand to consolidate
  • Low new investment, use existing resources
  • Boost participation across departments
  • Create high quality startups (reduce immature ones)
  • Students more attractive to potential employers – faster recruitment
  • Sustainable
  • Self driven

I have worked closely with two engineering colleges, before the pandemic, several faculty have accepted the solutions and as the pandemic wears off and colleges return to full activity, I will be consulting with many colleges in India.

I have not discussed the K3 point plan of action on this page as it is meant for Principals, Vice Principals and Managements of Colleges.

Long term benefit of K3 Plan:

A Good Friend of mine, a forward looking person suggested that spending time and effort on Engineering Education is a waste of time as it is a sliding industry.

May be he is right.

Partly, I feel because, as a whole the industry is dying, but we have to remember institutions have to survive and serve the nation. Meaning transition will happen.

The K3 Plan sets the foundation for the transition in the following two ways:

  1. Drive the transition of what is taught and learnt in Eng. Colleges
  2. Setup the base for a startup driven research and innovation (patents)

Adopting the K3 Plan will help Eng. Colleges to get ready for changes which are coming.
