Hai I am Eswar. In my view our education system should not be privatized. This is because Private institutes are really squeezing the blood of poor people. If and only if our education system is governed our literates rate never increase. Because we may not find as much of stuff in rich people but we can find in poor. If we provide an opportunity to prove themselves the poor really grow very high.

In my view privatization is important, only when it come along with govt. help.

The privatization is best way if:

* The government gives 50% seats to poor students.
* The college gives some free seats to distinction students.
* The govt. Provides seats as well as more fund to minor students and backward students.
* The college gives free seats to all students and take the over all fund by govt.

Friends, making whole education system private is not the end result rather reinforcing the loopholes in government education. Though government education helps us to how to stand like a kid but when the times comes to walk the government system pull its hands back to support. Here in this situation we have population explosion according to which most of student seeks higher education but government Has limited colleges reserved for categories. Therefore privatization in education should come only for a particular duration and it should also link the government Institutions so all of sudden every student then can get a chance to grow smoothly.

Welcome everybody. I feel glad being the part of this group discussion. As we all know this is time of capitalism. Every person who has money can get good education along with good grades. If we talk about boards, there are state or central boards. As we all know the most of private schools are affiliated from central board and this is very easy to pass and take good grade. For poor and rich people government education is more comfortable. Private education is comfortable for rich but not for poor.

Generally there are more intelligent people among poor. According to me education system should not be privatized whether it be primary level or higher level. Because if system is gone in private hand then the private body treat it like a business and what will happen when the business suffer the loss they will shut down their business means close the college or school whatever the condition. In that case only student suffer. Another reason is that every one can not afford the expenditure if the system become privatized. So in that case actual talent may not be emerged.

Hello my name is Abha and after listen to all of you I want to say that if we want to make our education system better it is not necessary that we privatised our education system completely but both government and private institution can collaborate to provide better system. We all know that private education institution demand very high fees from children which poor families cannot afford and till India share only 6% of student went to college for higher education and steps like this of privatisation of education may reduce this percentage.

According to me, in this present scenario privatization is needed because it will give more opportunities for the talented students. But when we consider the money the private institutions are controlled by the rich person. The persons who are having money they will go for higher studies.

This is the present situation. So my solution is the government will act as a private institution and provide more facilities so that no private institution is there. All the colleges should be managed by only one government not by many managements.

Hello friends,

I think the higher education must be private because the government is fail to maintain the quality of education. In most of the government colleges the faculties are interested in theirs monthly income. They are not interested to educate the students. Importance of money is higher than education in government colleges. So the quality of students also degraded. The government also started many of campaigns, scholarship programmes for poor students, but they are not reach up to those people who need that, so there's no hope from the government for the education.

My cousin sister won scholarship in NTSE exam in 2011 but till upto this day she did not got this prize money. SO maintain the quality of education privatization is must in higher education.

Hello everyone!my name is Anchal and I feel good to be a part of this group discussion. I think privatization is not a bad option either, no doubt private institutions are costly but if more students enroll in these institutions there will be competition among these private institutions hence fee will fall and more quality students will be passed out. Till then scholarships can be offered by government to get admission in these private institutions and lessen the burden of government institutions.

One of my acknowledged partner suggested that education should not be imparted with profit motive, I think there's no harm if education is carried forward with profit motive until it is not at the cost of quality of education. After all profit will come only if students are happy and satisfied.

As we all know the most of private schools are affiliated from central board and this is very easy to pass and take good grade. After school we have two ways either give donation to good private university or have good grade for government institution. But both become not possible for a person from state board. So he have to take admission on local university where education is only for money. So no good placement no good money as well. And same cycle repeats for further generation. So privatization first should be stop at school level then it will become easy for good university to take good talent and to form it as future of nation.

The speaker seems to be a little bit backwards in this thinking. Even after 60 years of independence, things have not improved much. Instead, the academic environment is fast deteriorating in government schools and colleges so, the simple answer is that education must be privatized.

Swami Vivekananda quoted "Education is the manifestation of perfection already in men". Education is compulsory for each and every individual who wants to succeed in any area of life.

Primary education till the age of 14 years is compulsory and free in India and is maintained by the government. But when it comes to higher education, the trend of privatization is sadly noticed in India.

The largest drawback resulting from privatization of education is increase in the fees as a result of which most of the students who are interested in continuing their studies are forced to quit.

The question that arises is that why cannot government provide free higher education? We are all aware of the fact that any individual who only had his primary education is not eligible for earning the bare minimum that is required for his or her survival. Though most of the people do not accept this bitter truth but the fact remains.

If we take a close look at the statistics of developing countries we will see that India as a developing country lacks far behind when it comes to analyzing the ration of people with higher education as compared to the other developing countries.

The proportion of the University and College going students is 6% in India while the figure is 20% in Egypt and Thailand, 10% in Turkey, 11% in Brazil, and 16% in Mexico.

In developed countries on the other hand, the ratio of the students opting for higher education is nearly 40%. If India dreams of becoming a developed country in the near future, it is extremely essential that more and more students opt for higher education.

Hello everyone I am Pinky pathak and I am very glad to be a part of this discussion. Almost everyone has given their views regarding privatisation of education and I would agree that almost everyone has to some extent added to the topic.

I would also like to share my view regarding the very topic. It is true that government institutes have a great hand in educating the learners but the situation is not the same like before, there used to be days in the yesteryear when government aided colleges/institutes used to be the main aim of the people but now the present condition is not the same.

Teachers of the government institutes have started focusing only in the money and is giving least importance to the quality of education, but I am not generalizing it, as there are still institutes like IIM, IIT, NIT who are providing impartial and quality education but due to the other govt institutes laziness the people are losing the faith in the govt institutes. On the other hand the full credit of quality education also cannot be given to the private institutes as their main motive is profit making, but still in comparison to the govt institutes they have proved themselves to be far better by gaining the confidence of the people.

I won't completely reject the idea of increasing privatisation as in a crowded country like ours where govt institutes are very few so private institutes have become a must as "EDUCATION" is the main key of development and this can be a reality only when everyone in the crowd is educated.

But the government must put up some criteria for the private institutes so that everyone get a chance regardless of their financial conditions to get the real taste of education. The govt can provide financial help as well as scholarships to the abled students with a bad financial condition. Also only those private institutes who truly provide better quality education must be allowed to impart knowledge and unnecessary institutes who focus only on profit motive must be closed down.

Thus if the above criteria are kept in mind before setting up a institute than privatisation is heartly welcomed.

Privatisation of higher education is necessary - as we say govt of India spending lakhs of rupees on students studying in iits and nit and inturn after pass out in aspect of huge money they provide their services to foreign companies and mainly responsible for declination of countrys economy and mainly for brain drain.

ON OTHER HAND.

Students studying in private colleges are giving their services to Indian companies at cheaper rates without any complaint and giving benefit to country economy and in private colleges there is no such such well equipped labs and professors like iits and nits, from private institutions students also go abroad and providing their services to other foreign companies but their no is less.

Hi friends, I think education is basic need of an individual and our country. Either provided by government or private sector. But if the load on government sector is quite large or uneven than it should be transferred to private sector. But with proper monitoring and regulation of government Thus maintaining justice, equality and quality of education privatization will also be a best option to achieve need of education.

Friends along with your points I want to put light on the point that our country's future depends on the youth. So to make them to stand on their feet for the betterment of the country. Government has to focus on this issue. I support the point that private college is quite good like BIT's but all can't afford to get admitted there. Hence some shining students failed to get admission. And hence some were forced to sacrifice.

Hence keeping this point in mind either government have to increase the number of government college maintaining the same standard as offered by private college or by helping the poor one by giving scholarship and loan at low interest so that they can afford private college if they fail to get admission in GOVERNMENT COLLEGES. As youth are the future of the country. Government have to work on it.

I think privatization is necessary. We'll get best quality of education. We'll get production of best quality students it also help to rise a standards of living but if and only if the object of privatization is "betterment of poor", because rich person can easily get the good quality education. From last 65 years government Institutes even can't able to expend 6 percent money from over total budget of India when it has already approved. So it is a time to give a shot and re them of right to education to the private sector.

In my view, privatisation of higher education in our country can be acceptable for some extent, because India is democratic country which is developing. There is need to establish private colleges. But at the same time government should take responsibility and implement necessary policies to control the fee structures, which cannot affordable for poor students. Government should take initiative steps to establish their institutions according to the growth rate of private institutions to check the policies of private institutions.

It is my pleasure to say some points on this topic.

I think higher education in India should not be privatised. There are prestigious institutes like IIT, NIT & other govt institutes which produces high quality students who have capability to turn India to a healthy and wealthy state. But there is a minor limitation, as India is a very populated state there are not significant number of these institutes for the students. This point is to considered highly by Govt.

As I personally think, every country has a large population of youth, so it is not possible for government institution to provide necessary and quality education to every youth of country because these institutions are limited in numbers, so there is a need of more number of institutions. But govt should also make some decisions regarding fee structure and scholarships programmes, so that poor meritorious students can also take admission in that and admission process should be transparent.

Hi friends, its my pleasure to have discussion with you all. What I think is at school level we all know our government is unable to provide quality education, many programs has been launched like day time free meal, free books etc to encourage students to come to school but none of them focuses on the quality of education. Teachers don't pay much attention whereas in private schools teachers pay much more attention towards student and hence results in better quality education. Private school has its own limitation of higher fees which everyone can't afford. Also in private school money is given prime importance.

Whereas at college level we have good government institutes like IITs, IIMs etc. And very less good private institutes, which also has very high fee structure. Govt should keep a check on private institute. Also merit basis admission should be preferred rather than donation.

Hello, here everyone talking about the alone privatization or governmental education but my point of view is regarding to the private cum government Education system so that both operational and functional effects takes place in a very systematic manner. Let us take an example if a student having not so much money but standing along meritorious length, govt should help him to provide a better education with the best private institute. Then it will work like a policy body and enhance the chance of development of nation also.

If discussion is about private institution there is no doubt only govt institutes or colleges does not fulfill the seats for all when govt provides approval to any pvt institutes there would be make necessary for them to provide reserve seats for poor students (in case of money) in total seats 10% or more.

Like every coin has two sides, similarly every thing follows with a positive as well as a negative effect.

We cannot deny the advantages that we can get by privatizing higher education, in the same way the loopholes are also prominent.

In order to provide education to these huge population of India privatization of education is necessary. Also the quality of education that students get from these private institutes are much higher in comparison to that of the government institutes.

Looking into the bad part of it, is that able and deserving students with poor economic and financial situation are held back, whereas students with less merit and much higher financial conditions gets the chance to carry with their education. Again, if the education system is privatized completely then it will be a business and we students will get affected from that.

So effective measures should be taken from our government to make it absolutely certain that meritorious students who cannot afford higher education are not deprived and continue with their education with higher compensation or scholarship maybe.

I totally disagree with my fellow speaker. According to me private institutes are necessary. Having a limited number of government institutes makes it impossible for the youth to get admission in them. What do you expect the rest of the youth to do?

Private institutes contribute in about 90% seats are provided by private institutes. Though I think the admission procedure should be changed. Instead of donations, knowledge should be the main procedure for admission. Government should take measures to monitor the functioning of private institutes so that they do not do what ever they want.

I think privatization of education will have both good and bad effects. Private institutes have high fees so the poor cannot afford the fee. Admission to the colleges without any entrance tests would compromise the quality of students. But in government colleges have low fee so the poor can also afford but it has limited seats so where do you expect the rest of the students would go. Again in government colleges, teacher doesn't much care about the performance of students. Students are deprived of gaining communication skills. I think with the implementation of entry level test in private colleges and intervention of government as a regulatory check on the private institutes and keeping fee low, we can privatize the education.

I don't think that we need more professional colleges in our country because more these colleges more student may be good or bad in studies or do have any interest in the field go for engineering or any professional and due to this in colleges no one cares about study and don't do hard work to learn and get pass just by cramming or by cheating or may be with money that why most of the graduate these days don't have enough technical as well as communication skills. Their was a report in the newspaper that 58% are not able to pass basic English test of 7th standard so how we expect from them to get a job in good company and that is the reason that in India 70 to 80% graduate are unemployed.

Opening the Engineering colleges is just a business for some money minded people they do not have any sympathy for these students whose parent spend hard earned money on them and after that again theirs son/daughter are useless unemployed.

So it is very important that the govt should do something to unauthorized some useless institutes and for elevating the quality of education (soft, technical) skills as per the company needs.

Hi this is Vikash I totally oppose privatization of education as though the quality of education being provided there be good but the process the use for selecting candidate should be changed from money based to education based through a entrance test. Because if a student get admitted in such colleges with huge fee structure but. Not best for such field will lead to the wastage of money if the don't get placed or don't get job. So if it should then it should take totally refined students for that particular course.

Because taking admission on basis of money can give satisfaction for few time but can ruin whole future of students because student lacking basic knowledge for that education can't be able for higher studies for that field.

Hello friends me Niju Srivastava. I myself don't support to the privatization of education. But in contrast to this privatization of education have so many advantages. Lets take a example that you are a good student and at the time of examination may be you are suffering from some situations such as illness, family problem. And due to that you can't get that much of marks through which you can't able to get admission in IIT or government colleges. Then you have another option that is private colleges due to which you can continue your studies without any break. And if you are a good student then you can get a very respectful place in the society.

Hi friends this is sidhartha. I m very glad to express my views on this topic. Ya no doubt it has been a serious topic of discussion since yesteryear. And rightly so as the privatisation of education is going on at its peak. This should be taken into control before it becomes too late. Govt should take initiatives arising from their proverbial slumber and slam those private institutions for enormous fee charging. On one side they are claiming the reservation as a tool for the upraisal of poor, backward people and on the other side showing their back to those issues that are taking the shape of huge giants making poor people even more helpless ever before. Private coaching institutions, private +2 colleges, engineering colleges where we can't even find a single qualified teacher are being paid like anything. So the need of the hour is to stop the privatisation of education and realise the essence of the bright future of these youngsters who would change the face of India in future.

I want to add some more points as we all know that in pvt colleges or schools teachers are paid well and they are having threat that they will lose their job that why they concentrates of every student and they are very much serious about what inputs they are giving to their students but in case of government colleges they don't even bother whether students are attending the classes properly or not, their main aim to to get the salary. They don't even think of students future. Due to this lots many intelligent students from poor or middle class families are getting suffered they are having the capability but because of fees structure they can't join the private college.

Hi, my name is Amandeep and I am glad to present my views on increasing privatization of higher education.

Now-a- days government is providing money, bicycles/uniforms to the students attending government schools, thus make education free. As a response to this initiative of the government, many students got admissions in government schools. Also girls education got promoted. But unfortunately, no steps are taken to improve the standard of education. In-fact, the number of students is more than the capacity of the class. We cannot deny the fact that, majority of government teachers prefer their children should study in private schools rather than the government schools, providing an example of low quality education being given in the government schools. Private schools, in no doubts, provide better education and exposure to the students, thus making them independent and decisive.

Now if we consider quality of higher education, in government and private colleges and universities, of-course, government colleges are better. The private colleges and universities which provide quality education are few in number and very costly. As a result, many students feel difficult to carry on with their studies any longer. It is the sole responsibility of the government to make policies that can provide impartial education to all the children. After all, education can bring innovation and our nation need youngsters that can work for the betterment of the country.

The government should ensure that the upcoming private universities/colleges/institutes should have genuine fees structure, talented faculty, well equipped labs, libraries, scholarships.

Now-a-days, we come across the news of corruption, making false degrees/certificates, bribes to get admissions in reputed colleges. All these incidents weaken our education system. Government should make strict policies to avoid such incidents and non-adherence to the policies should me made punishable. We need a strong law to impart quality education.

Privatization in education is inevitable. I would like all of you to note that in 2011 only 5000 students got admission in IIT out of 300000 students. So what do you expect the other students to go. Take up a field which is of not their choice. As we all know IIT is a government institute so the other students force fully have to go for private sector for higher education or go abroad, which also is very costly. Ya for sure privatization needs to lower its fees, but it doesn't makes privatization bad.

Privatization of colleges is not a good step in imparting quality education to the students. Though it is impossible for everyone to get admitted in government colleges, but at the same time government should have a check on the quality of education being provided in the private colleges. There is a call for private universities with the rapidly increasing number of students but at the same time one should see that the quality of education is good at those private universities. The major problem in private universities are those like, lack of proper laboratories, lack of other important equipment and materials through which the practical application of a particular theory or topic can be realized. Apart from that they have made education a business. There is no control on the fee which are to be paid by the students. They are selling a degree for money thus degrading the standard of a particular degree. It is now desired that government should at least see the standard of education in those private universities and should have some laws for controlling the fee for a particular degree so that students from economically backward section does not face much problem. It is also justified that the government should also see the quality of education not only the quantity. Otherwise quality of education will keep on decreasing.

As far as India concern, it is better that edcation becomes privat beacause in private scools and collage the staff or director board has to improve thier techjnic to teach the students, in government we are laging behind in education beacause of sake of instruments and in villages especially teaching staffs, negative side of privetisation, the feesof that is very high so government shoud abonden its price somewhat. Main matter of government's unsuccess is that it giving salary to the employee is very less some what 3rd or 4th partition of salary of private section so talented person won't like to work with this salary would like to work with this salary.

Privatization of higher education has both good and bad. Good is that because in pvt. Colleges every faculty have not a permanent authority. So, They teach their students properly to got a better result. If they not, They can be expelled out. And bad is that Pvt. Colleges has more fees which is not affordable by every person. Everyone have a desire to get admission in good college to become their future bright. In India, there are few Government colleges but syllabus will have not been updated since 1980s. Every teacher in government colleges consider himself a director. They don't care about students future. And wants to get free in whole day. They have made a benefit from their senior students to order him to take his classes And himself wants to be a tension free.

Privatization of higher education has both good and bad. Good is that because in pvt. Colleges every faculty have not a permanent authority. So, They teach their students properly to got a better result. If they not, They can be expelled out. And bad is that Pvt. Colleges has more fees which is not affordable by every person. Everyone have a desire to get admission in good college to become their future bright. In India, there are few Government colleges but syllabus will have not been updated since 1980s. Every teacher in government colleges consider himself a director. They don't care about students future. And wants to get free in whole day. They have made a benefit from their senior students to order him to take his classes And himself wants to be a tension free. So, government should make a policies just like don't make a senior teacher permanent. They should signed a bond between them if they could give him a good results, then their will be next bond signed. By doing this our government colleges will definetly improved and every student passed from the respective colleges becomes a intellectual. And our countries gain a more that they required.

While India can boast of having the third largest higher education system in the world, reality is that India is facing a severe shortage of skilled human resources. The reason for such a contrasting situation is the extremely low quality of primary, secondary, and college-level education in India. A possible way-out from this situation is privatization of the education system, which is predominantly public at present.

Privatization is nothing but making our India back because not only rich people but also lower class and middle class families also have intelligent children and they want to study further in good institutions but financial problems create much stress upon them and students get a lot of stress and sometimes it make them so desperate that they think to commit suicide thus who loose the talent, our community, our country.

According to me Privatization of Education is good in one way and has impact in other way.

The ways that are good in view of Privatization are :

* The knowledge of a student increases very much compared to Govt school students.

* As a impact of knowledge the students are getting good jobs and they are in good position in the society.

* Some of the students are able to take a decision individually rather depend on others even at high rate stress.

The ways that impact Education are :

* The students who are getting ranks are very few when compared to the students who are getting mental disorder to not even facing stress.

* There is no time for the students to get physical relaxation by playing sports etc.

Privatization of Higher Education in India.

Need:
It is definitely one of the crucial topics from yesteryear. The need for privatization finds its way in effective skill development by providing vehicles of several resources. It helps a student to compete in future and perform well. It provides a great deal of amenities in the field of education with demarcated activities. The goal of one gets out of public incarceration through privatization.

Impacts:
The main repercussion we will be able to see is the development of social and cultural perspectives through diversification of the scope of the mind. Private institutions definitely gonna generate a better individual with a firm ambition. Depending upon public sector alone will not grow our country. Role of private functionaries is must for a large democracy.

How to achieve:
In an organization, when there is need to settle for another place, one has to settle with its environment. Going from secondary level in public school to higher level in private college requires a change of mind. Private schools are already made mandated to hire 25% of poor people in their institutions under the well known Right to Education Act. On higher level, several institutions are getting nodes from the education ministry. The government of India should make specific number of institutions to work effectively in the different states.

Hi friends. I am Feroza Siddiqee and I am glad to share my view. Privatization no doubt helps in improving the education system by providing quality education but it is not easy for everyone to pay high amount of fees demanded by private colleges. It is the responsibility of government to provide the same quality education to the poor at the cost affordable by them or by providing funds for the same. Besides this govt colleges should increase their level of education so that everyone can get the proper education and exposure as without education there are no chances of development.

Privatization of higher education is not a very proposal provided there is a national policy to control quality of education and fees structure adopted by the private institute. The effort to provide new orientation and thrust to the system of higher education have been mostly superficial and half hearted.

Hi friends. I am very glad to share my thoughts here. According to me there is good and bad in privatization. In this competitive world every one wants to gain more knowledge and they prefer to study in good colleges. But all cannot get seat in good colleges, since there are very few seats in government colleges, they depend on private colleges. The management of private colleges take advantage of this factor and they raise the fee as they want. They know that students will take seat compulsory, some where in private college. Government should have control on the fee of private colleges. Some of the private colleges don't have sufficient labs and other materials. Students will have will lack of skills after outcome from college. In-order to eradicate this problem government should campaign the private colleges and they have to check the basic things whether college has or not. Due to the competition private institutes had made education a business. They are playing with life's of the students.

By privatization no doubt the education system quality improves in our country, it helps in growing the nation in faster time but analyzing our Indian economic condition for all public its not easy and no possible to pay the high amount of fees for collages.

The privatization is best way if:.
* the government gives 50% seats to poor students.
* the collage gives some free seats to distinction students.
* the govt. Provides seats as well as more fund to minor students and backward students.
* the collage gives free seats to all students and take the over all fund by govt.

Privatization in education is inevitable like in any other field. On the negative side they only priviliged individuals can study there, there is no reservation for SC/ST, I don't personally support caste based reservation but there should be some seats reserved for students with bas economic conditions. The worst effect of private institutes is that they have turned into Engineers/Doctors producing machine where the majority of pass out students lacks required skills.

On the Other hand In our country public institutes are too less and not every can score good marks in competitive exams so where will these so called average students go. Should they sit back at home after class XII or should they take admission in some course which they are not interested in?Here the pros of private institutes comes into play. Private institute provide opportunity to these students. Though almost in every field No1 colleges are public institutes but some of private institutes like S. P. Jain and MDI are catching up with these, but unfortunately number of such institute is too low.

So what can be done? Government should allow entry of private instutue but not in bulk, the process should be slow and gradual. There should be government norms which reserves atleast 10-15% of seats for economically backwards. If the fees is too high goverment can think to provide scholarships for these institute which till now is provided only for public institutes. Government agencies like AICTE should become more strict in approving such colleges and should keep a continuous check on quality of education in such private institutes. With active participation of government and safegaurding interest of all parties concerned I am sure that private institutes will contribute to development of India but for the the time being it becomes difficult.

Although private institutes are costly and is healthy business for their owners, it has given opportunity to many students to get higher study. Its true that it doesnot provide reservation for specific castes and religion like govt colleges, but it has provided better opportunity for those who due to some reason were unable to score good marks and were unsuitable for govt colleges. I also strongly don't support privatisation of education but seeing the ratio of govt colleges and private one and such a huge population of country I think private colleges are doing their good job. But despite my all views I think govt need to come in arena for developing more facilities and colleges for higher education very strongly. The govt strong action on education.

They may be intelligent ones but they do not get a chance to avail the facilities of the private institutions. Besides there is no reservation, so does it benefit the students belonging to the SC and ST community?

I disagree with everyone, education should not be left to the whims of the market nor should it be a government service. Higher education is a prime example of disparity amongst the value of the degree you obtained even in related fields. If thats not true, ask this question, does it make a difference if you omit the school you attended from your resume? On the flip side, govt education is subject to the possibility of education that is not objective. For instance, telling you that a particular movement is good or bad rather than telling you what they are, what they are trying to achieve, and what the opposition is and allowing the students to come to their own conclusion and debate differing opinions.

In my opinion, education should be run by a non-profit organization and at a minimum, provide a curriculum of math, language, science, culture/history/geography, art and political/business classes. The fees paid to the school is the fees to run the school divided by the number of students and the balance sheet should be made public. The govt could step in to support paying the fee for students to attend but it should not have any influence over curriclum and grading.

There should also be a world standard. Frankly, I find it abhorent that something as simple as the number of continents is taught differently. But that brings me to a whole new arguement on a need to standardize electricity and its distribution, communication (too include a lingua franca) and education.

Higher education should not be privatized as everybody cannot afford to have quality education as the price don't cope with everyone. Instead the good quality in the private institute should be provided in the government institutes too. Thus everyone would be able to have quality education with low cost. There would be no discrimination in a sense. Everybody likes to pursue higher education in a better and a high class way which would be possible for all if provided in govt. institutes.

In a way, it's a boon if you see education just a medium to get into a job. So many millions of private engineering colleges and private MBA colleges have built up like mushrooms these days! In every 100 Indian students, u'll get >75% of them are either having a B-Tech or having an MBA degree! And after getting that they join private sector jobs mostly! Privatization has the capability of bringing a revolutionary change in the economy indeed! But.

Does it serve quality? or they are just concerned about the quantity? That Indian Government should give a special check. Before 100 years, there were 15 prime government engineering colleges in India; even at this point of time, this country has the same number of those. Whereas population count has got multiplied by billion folds! Did Govt. Care? Nope. Even in case of premier B-schools, the statistics reveals the same nature. In a way, privatization of higher education has opened various opportunities, but the saddest part of it is that: it's limited for students hailing from affluent families only.

Middle-class and lower-middle class students still give it a try availing educational loans. That too is quite full of intricacies in Govt banks!

Our government is not able to handle its responsiblity that's why it want everything privatisied. Government should have a good management system so that they could manage the employees.

If the education will be privatisied the percentage of school-going children will drop down and as far as higher education is concerned, already the rate is very low and after privatisation it will effect negativly.

Education will be treated as a product and student as a customer by the corporate world. Lack of morals would be there.

If our government becomes repsitory than why don't give the whole management of the nation to the private hands or the corporate world, if they can handle a large business then why not a country. They are having a good experience and the our leaders and political parties must sit back to thier home and watch what will happen then.
