Higher education GER to be raised to 30% by 2020: Pallam Raju
The government has begun efforts to enhance the Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) in higher education to 30 per cent by 2020 from the current level of around 19 per cent, Union Minister for Human Resource Development (HRD) M M Pallam Raju said on Saturday. “We have a Gross Enrolment Ratio of close to 19 per cent, which is much below the 26 per cent average GER in the global scenario. But we are certain that with the sustained efforts that began in 11th Five Year Plan we will be able to take our GER to 30 per cent by 2020,” he said.
