Higher education has a crucial role in India’s ability to succeed in the modern global economic system. The number of institutions serving the sector and student enrollments in India have expanded very rapidly in recent decades. Enhanced educational attainments have contributed significantly to the high economic growth rates in the services sector that have buoyed India’s recent economic performance.
