Annual Status of Higher Education of States and UTs in India 2015
The report highlights some of latest policy developments in the higher education sector, such as the introduction of choice-based credit system (CBCS), the government scheme for ranking institutions, the role of state governments in improving student enrolment figures in higher educational institutions, and the role of higher education in the government’s Smart City mission.
Annual Status of Higher Education in States and UTs 2015 takes stock of the higher education scenario in India and provides an overview of the sector’s genesis, recent happenings, and future roadmap. The report further reflects on the key challenges and shortcomings currently hampering its growth. It has been a privilege with us to partner with MHRD and CII for co-authoring the previous two editions of this report. In this edition, we have made a conscious effort to showcase some of the key reforms that are currently pending in Parliament and their possible impact on the overall landscape. Like the previous two editions, the report also provides a detailed overview of the status of the higher education sector in different states and union territories of the country based on certain vital indicators.
