It seems like lack of funds is a great concern for southern universities. Though they gain funds, they are focused much for the research. Unfortunately, they lack in sufficient and experienced faculty members.
For a clear picture, a survey was held by the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu and the Confederation of Indian Industry on higher education institutions in the southern states.
The study states that obtaining funds, focus on innovative research and lack of committed faculty plague the system. The survey is reported as 'Status of Higher Education in South India 2013'.
This is the picture of the education system, and the truth of southern universities.
The survey revealed that gaining funds is the most important challenge that is faced across south Indian universities. The challenges vary on the category of universities like, Engineering/ Technical, Arts and Science, Management and more.
According to report, the fostering entrepreneurship through education and implementing interaction between industry and the institute has been a key challenge in making the education system more accessible.
On the other hand, the admissions and intake of students responds on the incompetent level of the structure of fees as fixed by the government. Other major challenges are the differential structure of fees across universities in other states, which leads to lack of uniformity in the admission system and further process. Sometimes low number of students from professional backgrounds is also an extreme challenge.
Additionally, the level of difficulty is also increasing in terms of fostering entrepreneurship through education. Moreover, accessing government supported strategies and lack of understanding among the faculty members towards education are the important issue faced by the universities.
