Education, Commercialisation, India
Read the new article - Increasing commercialization of education in India and its side effects

In recent times, we are witnessing a new trend in India and due to this trend; today education has become a way of earning lots of money by businessmen, politicians and bureaucrats. For most of these entrepreneurs education is nothing more than a way of making good returns from their investments and due to this reason, they are charging huge amount of fees from students, while students mostly have no option in their hands except giving this fees in the hope of getting a good education and later good future.

We can easily give the example of flourishing MBA colleges across India where average annual fees is around 5-10 lakh rupees; however, the facilities provided by these colleges are much below average levels. Most of these colleges remain more interested in making good bucks than providing quality education to students. Every year, number of students going for higher professional education is increasing in India and therefore, good opportunity exists for all these colleges to make money by offering such courses. Same condition do prevail in other professional colleges in India.

In many cases, situations even become worse and students feel cheated at the end of courses. However, in India this trend has full support of our government because many big political leaders and industrialists are running these colleges. Therefore, they easily get the required certificates to run these colleges without providing proper educational infrastructure. At the end, we can say that for these people education has today become an option to make money only than providing quality education to students.

This is really a shameful situation for country like India where our great leaders have stressed on quality and free education. There are many people in India, who still live under poor conditions and therefore, they first find it hard to afford this education and second, if can afford then fail in getting quality education in return. Though, government announce many such popular schemes for providing help to poor students but these schemes mostly do not get any takers due to less information and rampant corruption in system.
