Universities in India need a dose of competition and autonomy
In yet another confirmation of the poor standard of higher education in India, a list of the top 100 varsities under 50 years of age does not feature a single Indian university. The Times Higher Education 100 under-50 global ranking is designed to gauge relatively younger universities – established in 1963 or after – and juxtapose their performance with that of older institutes of learning. Although eight countries in Asia make the list, India’s absence highlights its inadequacy in terms of a crucial human resource input. This certainly does not augur well for a developing nation looking to reap demographic dividends.
