Commercialization of Education

In last 10 years the scenario of education in NCR has revolutionized and the new policy of government is making the foundation of another big round of changes and during this phase a large number of private players have created a big amount of wealth because as all the private players who are previously has some small institutes now a days have opened polytechnic, engineering and management institution and currently these players are in process of upgrading themselves to university level and some of them have already done it.

These private players created big wealth as the educational institutes get big concessions/grant/tax free benefits from government but does the private players passed on these subsidy/benefits/concession to common citizen and did not stored money in their own pockets by exploiting various loopholes in the system.

Now the government has introduced the foreign universities and in view of that private players are trying for foreign collaborations/tie-ups with various foreign universities but the question is are we creating a ill-trained army of professionals of various sectors means the students who will study in these institutes are international level professionals and not just a degree holder. It may seem that in near future degrees will be sold by private players by just completing the formalities and not by giving actual knowledge and education to our young generation.

How many peoples from poor family are able to get higher education from private institutions and how many number of poor family professional have been generated by these private players.

CAN YOU SUGGEST SOME WAYS TO PLUG THE LOOPHOLES IN THE SYSTEM.
