On Self-financing of Institutions of Higher Learning in India


  • S.K. Mishra



Our higher education system needs restructuring and it should avoid conspicuous consumption. Institutions should try to earn money by doing some productive activities. It should be made mandatory that every teacher will produce a book in his discipline at an interval of every five years – not by merely collecting articles written by others, but by writing a complete treatise himself, or translating a good book – which will be judged by a good publishing house in collaboration with the university and published if found suitable. It may fetch a good deal of revenue to the teacher himself, the university and the economy.
