I feel there should be a fewmore IIT, S AND IIMS in the country as well Govt should spend more money on Primary and secondary education. If we see the statistics the growing population'demand for the primary and secondary education is not met by the Govt. It reflects our country's literacy rate of 64% still there are people who are in need of primary education. Any nations development is mainly depending on the quality of the population. There should be more primary and secondary schools at the convenience of the people on the basis of the population of the area.

Govt should spend more money and should come forward regulations to stop the school dropouts, and the child labour shall be curbed completely in the nation. The other side quality of education as per the international standards is being cultivated in the students by the IITs and IIMs, we see in many of the students of these institute are taken away by the MNC's. Hence, there should be proper allocation of funds by the govt towards primary education and the premier institutes.

A strong foundation of primary/secondary education coupled with better quality education, faculty, infrastructure facilities & management in other colleges to bring them to the same standard of IITs & IIMs is a better option..

There should be no more IITs absolutely,because being an iitian i know how the brand value of the iits is being seriously damaged and the quality of the students coming in is also declining rapidly.KAPIL SIBAL is a useless pain for the country.He has to realise that more iits would ruin everything the alumni has built so far.Its high time kapil ass.

Hello friends,

First thing I wanna to say that a building can not build on the weak foundation, our government is spending lots of money every year for primary and secondary education system but the condition of primary schools are still miserable because of some.

Currupted politician, they divides the government funds among them. Our higher education system is one of the most renowned education system all over the world, every year we are producing hundreds of technical and management intellectuals. Increasing the no. Of IIT and IIMs is totally depends upon government policy whether government have enough found or not?

But there is a need to take special care of primary education system.

Hello friends, this is himanshu & I think the government must increase the number of iits and iims as nowadays the number of students are nearly 4-5 times as compared to previous ten years. So obviously the talented students also increased but some of them not qualify the exam as seats are less and take admission in other college which are not giving any exposure as compared to iit and iim. The number must increase as the ratio increases. Otherwise we can loose some talent required for our country and even world. So the government must increase the no.

In my opinion number of IIT and IIM shouldn't increase. Government should concentrate on the improvement of Primary/secondary level education. Because if our base is not strong then how our building would be strong. If our primary/secondary level education are not up to mark then students can't put themselves according to the level of IIT and IIM.

If government want to do at higher education level. It can improve other colleges and make them in the category of iim and iit.

Hello friends this is shyamal solanki. In my opinion there is simultaneous requirement for both quality education at primary level as well as at the higher level. As primary education has become right to education under art. 21 it has now become the duty of govt to provide primary edu. To every child of India. Unless and until there is good primary educational facilities available what is meaning of making more and more iits and IIMS. But we should also keep one thing in mind that India is now growing at 8% gdp rate and one of the major reasons for this is that the industries have grown very fast rate which requires a good amount of skilled manpower who can run them in organized and profitable way so that this growth can be maintained. And generate this manpower we need institutions which are capable enough in terms of facilities, infrastructure ect. And we all know the standard which is maintained by the institutes like IITs and IIMS. So there is requirement to make more IITs and IIMs.

Hello friends I am Prashant Dhakate. The creation of more and more IIT's and IIM's are now in line with the demand of the present scenario where quality education is getting diminished. The rise of many private colleges have hampered quality of bachelors coming out. I fully support the idea of creation of new IIT's and IIM's if they are to maintain the same standard or follow the lineage of sister IIT's and IIM's and not like be the condition of many private colleges where students take admission because they don't have any other option due to their poor performance in qualifying tests. In India lakhs of engineer pass every year but still there is dearth of quality education. Actually quality education in quantity is what we require.

Lets ask ourself one question why are we prefering iit or iims? it is because of the the quality education, placements they offer. It is the quality and brand name that is attracting us. I feel there are enough colleges in our country and now lets focus on the quatity of educatn and not on quantity.

One most imp thing is Primary education is very very important and more money should be spent on them.

As per my suggestion, IITs and IIMs must be increased because they produce qualified youth who in turn will help our country. Private colleges are increasing at a rapid rate where education level is deplorable. Today the competition has increased a lot but due to the lack of seats and foundation of time i.e. age, students ultimately choose private colleges. This spoils their career and brings down the quality of engineers and MBAs produced in the country. Therefore for a developing country like India it is the need of the hour. If the point of good lecturers arises, then if good colleges are more, obviously they will give good teachers to the country.
