Development Of Higher Education In Manipur In The Post – Independence Era Upto 2010


  • Tomba Chingtham


The paper attempts to explore the development of Higher Education in the State of Manipur and to find out the opinion of college / university teachers and students regarding the present status of higher education in Manipur, in relation to planning / administration, infrastructural facilities, courses of study, students' issues, examinations, co-curricular activities, financing and teachers' issues. The finding of research shows that there has been a phenomenal growth and expansion of higher education. As a result of this unplanned expansion, the entire system of higher education has deteriorated. Innumerable higher education institutions have deteriorated standards and are functioning at a sub-standard level. Higher education institutions, particularly colleges were severely lacking in most of the infrastructural facilities. There is a poor finance to colleges resulting in inadequate facilities to students and teachers. All colleges in Manipur offer same courses of studies and specialization. This trend continues even today. No attempt or plan has been made for diversification to the new courses of studies and specialization. Key words: administration, higher education, education
