Brief: One of the most fundamental challenges that we face in India is related to the lack of quality in higher education. Quality is the most significant issue in our universities. We need to be worried about the fact that not even a single university from India is one of the top 200 universities of the world.
When Universities from China, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taipei, and Japan figure in the list of top universities, why are we lagging behind?
There is lack of innovation in our universities. The existing legal and regulatory framework of higher education does not provide opportunities for establishment of this innovation in universities. Even our own limited experience of engaging and interacting with students across the country shows that there are very few people seriously interested in academia.
