PRIVATIZATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION AN ANALYTICAL STUDY OF LITERATURE REVIEW

ANAM ZEHRA

Abstract

India has been leading the world in the privatization of higher education, especially during the years 2010 to 2020. The primary research inquiry in the current study is concerned with the development of privatization in India from 2010 to 2020 and its effects on entry into India's higher education system. Secondary data and descriptive analysis is employed in this paper. Although it was noted that the Government's overall expenditure on higher education has increased, as a percentage of GDP, it has decreased between 2010-20. Private educational institutions' proportionate share of enrollments has grown steadily and quickly and the public sector has either decreased or remained stagnant. Also, this paper investigates the impact of ICT on boosting the privatization of higher education in India.
