The Indian Experiment

Recent developments in the University of Delhi suggest that, while there is no coherent national policy on higher education, Indian industry certainly does have a detailed operational blueprint. The university has been targeted for inclusion in the second tier within the corporate framework of a differentiated academic system and, consequently, high quality academic output is no longer required from it.

I thank my colleagues Sudipto Ghosh and Samir K Singh for providing information related to their disciplines, and Rudrashish Chakraborty for clarifying certain aspects of the four-year undergraduate programme. The usual disclaimer applies.
