N. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA, commented on the importance of education and said, "Education is a fundamental component of society, and quite naturally the quality of an educational institute determines the quality of the students it creates. Unfortunately, however, there is no research that provides a universal metric for comparing different institutes - schools, college, university, coaching classes among others. It is this acute awareness that led us to map the entire education sector topography, hoping to give the students and their parents a universal basis of information and choice in the choice of institute."
