Education System in India

School Level
The educational structure is generally referred to as the Ten + Two + Three (10+2+3) pattern.

The first ten years provide undifferentiated general education for all students.
The +2 stage, also known as the higher secondary or senior secondary, provides for differentiation into academic and vocational streams and marks the end of school education.
In +3 stage, which involves college education, the student goes for higher studies in his chosen field of subject.

Higher Education Level

Almost 6.75 million students seek admission in higher education every year in India. India has private sector presence in education services, which co-exist with public educational institutions.

1. Higher Education Institutes
The institutions of higher learning in India fall into the following broad categories:

a) Universities - Central Universities and State Universities.
b) Deemed to be Universities: These institutions are given deemed to be university status by the Central Government on the recommendation of the UGC (University Grants Commission).
c) Private Universities: These are established by various State governments through their own legislation.
d) Institutes of National Importance: These Institutes are declared as such by the Government of India by an Act of Parliament and are empowered to award degrees.
e) Premier Institutes of Management: These are the Institutes that have been set up by the Central Government and are outside the formal university system. They offer Post-Graduate Diploma Programs that are equivalent to Master’s Degree Programs in area of management.

2. Colleges

Most colleges are affiliated to universities and provide undergraduate education.
Some colleges also undertake post-graduate teaching and research.
The affiliating universities oversee the standards of the affiliated colleges and hold examinations and award degrees to successful candidates.
The college sector is managed both by the Government and Private bodies.
There are some constituent colleges that are established and managed by a particular university. Similar to that of universities, the growth of the number of colleges has also increased manifold.

3. Autonomous Colleges
Understanding the importance of exercise of academic freedom by teachers is a crucial requirement to the development of the intellectual climate of our country.

As students, teachers and managements are co-partners in raising the quality of higher education, it was decided to confer autonomous status to such institutions as have the capability to design their own curriculum, evolve innovative teaching and testing strategies. The UGC, on the recommendation of an Expert Committee and in consultation with the State Government and the University concerned, confers the autonomous status on colleges.

4. Open and Distance Learning in Higher Education
Approximately 22% of the enrolment in higher education can safely be attributed to be covered under distance education programmes. Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) in 1985 is the apex body for imparting and monetaring the distance learning program in India.

5. Private Initiatives in Higher Education
A number of developments have taken place regarding private initiatives in higher education.

Establishment of private universities by various governments through their own legislation which vary from State to State and also within the State.
Establishment of Deemed to be Universities including de-novo category, involving particularly private institutions imparting technical, medical and other professional education.
Conceptualization of virtual universities for entry of foreign universities in different kinds of collaboration.

Today there are a significant number of private universities in various states and the numbers are still growing.

6. Vocational Education & Training
Vocational Education & Training (VET) institutions in India include the Institutes of Technology, Technical Universities, Polytechnics etc. These are aimed at preparing students for entry into various areas like agriculture, business & commerce, humanities, engineering & technology, home science & health and para- medical skills etc.

The Vocational Training Market in India is worth approximately USD 1.6 bn and is estimated to be growing at 25% per annum. Every year, about 0.165m students are estimated to undergo vocational training apprenticeships in state-run enterprises. India has one of the world’s most youthful population (53% of people are aged below 25 years according to the 2006 Census) and there are 310 million people aged between 15 to 25 years. It is estimated that during 2006 - 2010, 71 million youths will enter the working-age population. Here lies the significance of vocational education along with other higher education systems being imparted in the country.

Government Plans and Budgetary Allocation

The country has witnessed phenomenal educational development – both in quantitative and qualitative terms, since independence. The Government has been steadily increasing the budgetary allocation for education and the country has also made significant strides in higher and technical education.

From a brief analysis of the current 5 year Plan, one can infer that the standing government headed by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh considers education as a main pillar for economic growth & social welfare, and substantial financial resources have been allocated accordingly.
