The sweeping restructuring in the draft has far-reaching conclusions for higher education in India, not the least of which is:

  • a tightening of political control over education and destruction of university autonomy
  • a surrender to global multi-billion-dollar corporate forces, in opposition to national interest and sovereignty
  • a disastrous restructuring featuring a failed four year model
  • a massive hike in tuition fees
  • an unequal structure that forces out those from economically weaker and historically marginalised backgrounds
