Higher Education paradigm in our country is evolving fast. Now the challenge before all the stakeholders is to derive maximum benefit for all for Institutions, Industry, Educators, Learners and Society as a whole- for sustained growth. A need-based, effective, dynamic, responsive and humane education system would be capable of addressing the challenge.
