Navpreet Kaur, Navneet Kaur

Education is fundamental to an equitable society. An excellent education equips children and youth with the knowledge, skills, values, mindset needed to be empowered individuals and responsible citizens. The students are consumers, teachers are service providers and expert speakers, and the institutions or companies catering to education services are organizers, and the teaching-learning process is no longer for the building of a nation but a business for profit making. This paper outlines the meaning, need and major implications of the increasing Privatization and Commercialization of Higher Education in India. The objective of this paper is to study the issues in Higher Education in India, especially after globalization and the entry of the private sector in Higher Education and examine some solutions to improve the quality and availability to those who deserve it. The quality of teaching, learning and research needs to be upgraded if India is to evolve as a World class Education hub.
