education system comprises of formal and informal network of educational institutions. With economic growth
and enhanced technology it has become necessary to develop the structure of the Indian education sector. Funds
are a major concern in the market though the government has taken many initiatives for the development of
education infrastructure which can be fulfilled by private players. The government has opened the doors for
foreign universities by passing Foreign Educational Institution (Regulation of Entry and Operation) Bill, 2010,
which will help in shaping the education industry structure specially pertaining of higher education in India. The
present GER (Gross Enrollment Ratio) in higher education in India is around 12 per cent (world average 23.2
per cent, developed nations 54.6 per cent, Asian countries 22 per cent) and the government of India wants to
increase this to 21 per cent by 2017. There is an interim GER target of 15 per cent by 2011-12, for which the
enrolments in universities/ colleges need to be substantially raised to 21 million students. The government
estimates that the share of enrolments of private, unaided higher education institutions will be around 51 per
cent. It is obvious that the government of India alone will not be able to achieve GER target and will require
public partnership, private investment, and participation of foreign institutions to achieve this ambitious
goal. The higher education in India has experienced significant growth over the last two decades. Universities
and Colleges in India have grown at a CAGR of over 5% and 6% respectively, since independence
