This chapter deals with the emerging scenario in the Indian education sector which forms the basis of an account of the recent policy initiatives being mooted or being implemented. It is argued that a growing private-sector provisioning, particularly in higher education, has led to a compromise with inclusiveness and excellence. The basic rationale behind majority of the policy initiatives is one of establishing a quasi-market for higher education which is to be regulated by a regulatory authority, and facilitated by a grievance redressal mechanism, encouraging participation of foreign education providers, quality assurance mechanism, public–private partnership (PPP) in new ventures, and governance reform in the universities in line with new public management. The chapter ends with a discussion on various aspects of globalization of higher education.

Keywords:   education, privatization, public–private partnership, governance reform, globalization, quality assurance, regulation
