The sweeping restructuring in the draft has far-reaching conclusions for higher education in India, not the least of which is:

  • a tightening of political control over education and destruction of university autonomy
  • a surrender to global multi-billion-dollar corporate forces, in opposition to national interest and sovereignty
  • a disastrous restructuring featuring a failed four year model
  • a massive hike in tuition fees
  • an unequal structure that forces out those from economically weaker and historically marginalised backgrounds

  1. Equal right to education is our fundamental right. If any document possess hindrance to it, it is unconstitutional and unjust.
    Our education system should also address our national demands, culture and integrity. Any policy, no matter whom so ever it may profit, should be immediately rejected.

  3. 1.Reservation in admission to higher education should completely be abolished.only merit should be counted.
    2.Moreover the scholarship of 140000per year to sc students only increases the number of registrations.They appear at the end of session only to collect money.
    3.No reappears to be carried forward for 3 yrs.the students stop taking education seriously.
