GATS and Higher Education

This paper discusses the present system of higher education and attempts to find the possible implications for India in being a signatory to GATS. It analyses the broad structure of GATS and concentrates on some of its articles. Since the agreement is diverse, there are intrinsic pressures for pushing negotiations of 'interest groups'. In the absence of a coherent education policy, the effects of opening up could lead to a distorted function of education in our society.
