Higher Education in India is in deep crisis and deplorable condition. It is being examined and suitable remedial measures are being taken at every level to set right the maladies. Yet one could see the fall of institutions and institutional leadership and more particularly the fall of moral stature of leaders of higher education starting from the Ministers of Governments to the Vice-Chancellors of the Indian Universities. The sudden expansion of higher education in India to meet the market needs has created such a havoc to the higher education in India. In the name of expansion quality is the casualty. Exploitation of the people by the private sector in education is the order of the day. Barring the premier public institutions and a few private institutions, all are not in a healthy condition to produce quality man- power needed to the market. But the private sector has been making unlimited profit in higher education. The above issues have been analysed and remedial measures are suggested in this small volume. In the same way, yet another problematic dimension of the higher education is extension or outreach programmes of the Indian Universities. How extension is important? What potentials are available in the higher education institutions for extension? How extension activities could be carried out? and what is the status of extension in Indian Universities are analysed and explained based on his own personal experience in carrying out the outreach activities in this book. Printed Pages: 190.
