Enrolment Spikes in Higher Education, A Quantitative and Qualitative Challenge

In addition to enabling access to higher education, quality of the education must also be guaranteed.

The draft National Education Policy of India stipulates that the Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) in higher education should be increased by at least 50 per cent by 2035. The current GER is at 26.3%, and if it is to double in the next 15 years, it needs some thorough ambitious planning, improvement and consistent implementation.
