Despite being regarded as having a very long history of education and scholarship, India has always struggled to provide universal access to education - more so, at the higher education level. Since the independence, the Government has been working very hard in providing quality education to all. However, the challenges are too many - the sheer number of students, the cost of providing education, societal structure, remoteness of places, certain disconnect with the industry, etc. Nonetheless skilling of its citizen is a must for a country in today's world. In this talk, we plan to discuss various aspects of challenges that India faces and where we must find appropriate solutions.
