Propositions for Improving Quality Of Higher Education in India
After independence, the number of institutions of higher education in all disciplines has increased enormously. Quantitative growth, however, has allowed us to address key quality issues. India is now one of the fastest developing countries in the world, with an annual growth rate of over 9%. To maintain this growth rate, we need to increase the number of institutes and improve the quality of higher education in India. There is an urgent need to rethink financial resources, access and equity, quality standards, relevance and, ultimately, the capacity to respond to reach and meet future requirements.
