The University Autonomy in India: The Idea and the Reality

Bhim S. Dahiya (Author)
Synopsis The University Autonomy in India is an outstanding work by one of the most knowledgeable and experienced academic administrators in India today. Defining the dynamics of the changing idea of the university in all its various dimensions, the book shows how the realities surrounding the Indian universities have, over the years, derailed these institutions from their assigned social role of producing healthy human resource for the spiritual as well as material advancement of the nation. Making a free and frank review of the various Education Commissions’ Reports and showing an unsparing attitude to the politico-bureaucratic meddling in the affairs of the universities, it offers new ideas on the subject of structural management of higher education. The book offers both short-term remedies as well as long-term solutions to the burning problems of eroding autonomy and sinking standards in the dominion of the dons.
