Higher education predicted to be expensive

Affording higher education wont be pocket friendly any more, with vice-chancellors (V-Cs) of the central and state universities recommending 10% fee hike every three years to be implemented soon.The suggested changes is on cards, and is recommended as a measure to meet the financial requirements of the universities.
The recommendations are yet to be approved by the HRD ministry in case of central universities, while for state universities will await to listen from the state governments.

At a national level conference organised by University Grants Commission (UGC) and Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD), it was debated that the central and state universities may be statutorily required to adopt revision of fee structure payable by the students by at least 10% for every three year period.A semester system (2 semesters in an academic year) need to be implemented across all universities with a credits-based system.

To attract and retain quality of faculty, it was suggested incentive structures to be introduced, particularly in state universities and institutions in remote rural areas.The idea to stop the brain drain could work if Indian universities could engage with foreign universities for tie-ups for faculty and student exchange.
