India - Higher Education Policy Update, June 2017

Report
20 June 2017

An update on India higher education policy. Against a backdrop of state reform of the two regulatory bodies – University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) – there have been important policy interventions that have demonstrated a desire on the part of the Indian Government for the regulatory bodies to loosen their grip on higher education.

This information note will focus on two of these policies; The Global Research Interactive Network – which focuses on internationalisation efforts and improvements in research outputs – and the ‘Institutes of Eminence’ – which seeks to provide greater autonomy to ten public and ten private institutions. The note concludes with a brief analysis of three other Government of India policies: the National Institutional Framework Rankings 2017; the National Academic Depository; and the Higher Education Finance Ministry.
