India’s universities may undergo a significant makeover with the government phasing out the bewildering multilayered system with a simplified one in sync with global practices.
Universities, currently classified as unitary universities, affiliating universities, deemed-to-be universities, central and state universities etc, should be bundled into a single category—higher educational institutions (HEI)—a government committee has suggested.The suggestions which are part of the draft new education policy report, underline that a university has only one definition worldwide, namely, a multidisciplinary institution of higher learning that offers undergraduate, graduate and doctorate programmes, and engages in high quality teaching and research.
“The present complex nomenclature of HEIs in the country as ‘deemed to be university’, ‘affiliating university’, ‘unitary university’, and so on will be phased out. Universities will be characterised only as public, private, or private-aided; and as multidisciplinary research universities or comprehensive teaching universities,” the report says.
Budget 2019-20: Public spending on education There is hardly any disagreement that a thriving education system is vital for the progress of a country and it should get priority while allocating funds.
The New Education Policy 2019 draft report states the government has a target to increase spending on education to 6% of GDP to increase gross enrolment ratio (GER) to 50% by 2035 from 25.8% as per the latest available data of 2017-18. Therefore, the government must increase public spending on education to at least 4% of GDP in this upcoming Budget.
Technology-enabled education Digital delivery is the way to address the biggest challenge that higher education institutions (HEIs) are going to face in India, i.e. staying competitive in a changing environment. Implementation and initiation of online education delivery is still in infancy in India. Identifying trends in online learning, investing in advanced educational technologies and providing training to faculty members are the difficulties for HEIs in India.
The suggestion, if accepted, will simplify the sector, one of the biggest in the world, but too convoluted in its functioning. India has over 50,000 higher education institutions, including 907 universities.
It also suggested that private institutions be allowed to have access to government funding especially for research and development, a long-pending demand from the private sector that manages over 65% of higher education institutions (HEIs) in India. The private HEIs will have equal access to national research foundation funding for research support as public institutions.
