Dr. Pooja Aggarwal
Abstract: Education is an only tool for developing a modern knowledge - driven economy and society. It provides skills and competencies for economic well - being and social mobility. Higher education imparts depth knowledge and understanding to the students in different walks of life. Indian higher education has a complex structure combined with many contradictions but still it has many possibilities. Indian higher education system does not match with the international standards. A focus should be on learning and skills with the higher standards of research in the higher education system in India. According to statistics, India has the third largest higher education system, trailing only the United States and China. In India, there are 799 universities, including 44 federal universities, 540 state universities, 122 deemed universities, 90 private universities, 5 institutes created and operating under the State Act, in addition to 75 Institutes of National Significance (AIIMS, IITs, IIEST, and NITs). According to the UGC, there are 39, 071 colleges operating under these universities and institutes as Government Degree Colleges and Private Degree Colleges, including 1800 exclusive women's colleges. The current study aims to improve understanding of the function of research and study, as well as abilities for higher education quality. This study highlights the major issues and challenges which are the barriers in the Indian higher education system. Further it also argues for the integration of these indicators in research quality assessment tools and evaluation frameworks. The outcome indicates that there is a severe need to discuss, implement and practice more and more research, learning and skills - oriented activities are required.
