Higher Education Management, Policies and Strategies
The Indian education system has grown rapidly since independence. After British rule, higher education was regarded as the key to national development. Since then, the demand for higher education has increased enormously and many colleges and universities have been established. In 1980 there were 123 colleges and 4738 universities and 5% of the tertiary qualification group registered. In 1980, higher education was largely limited to humanities, science, trade, medicine and technology. In addition to supporting institutions for higher education in the government, the institutions are set up in terms of subsidies from subsidiary or private subsidies.
