What are the challenges facing higher education in India?

  • Inadequate funding: The Indian government spends a relatively small percentage of its GDP on education, which has led to a shortage of resources in many higher education institutions.
  • Inequality of access: The quality of higher education in India varies greatly, and students from disadvantaged backgrounds often have difficulty accessing high-quality institutions.
  • Lack of research: Indian universities produce relatively little research, which limits their ability to contribute to knowledge and innovation.
