higher education in india

The university system has been adversely affected due to decline in public investment in higher education over the years, the Lok Sabha was informed on Monday. In a written reply, Minister of State for Human Resource Development D Purandeswari said that participants at the Vice-Chancellor's Conference drew attention towards this problem. She said they asked for remedial measures to strengthen higher education. The government is setting up central universities in uncovered states and world class universities as per the 11th plan. Indian Institutes of Technology, Indian Institutes of Management and Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research will also be set up for offering better higher education. Eight new IITs are being set up, she said. The government has planned expansion of capacity of existing institutions, incentives for state government for increasing outlays on higher education, strengthening of science-based research in universities, frequent updating of curricula, introduction of semester system and faculty improvement as part of the 11th plan.
