This chapter describes how the Indian education system began to undergo a systemic transformation from 1990s, how ‘international’ schools made their appearance, how private-unaided institutions (self-financing institutions) began to dominate professional education, how the idea of private universities begins to acquire traction, and how India began to be increasingly exposed to the ongoing globalization of education. It critiques the functioning of the AICTE and NCTE. It outlines the policy initiatives undertaken by Madhavrao Scindia and S.R. Bommai as Ministers, MHRD. It narrates the controversy aroused by the proposal to set up a world class National Science University. It describes the salient features of the Private Universities (Establishment and Regulation) Bill, 1995, introduced in the Rajya Sabha by Scindia, and the efforts made by Bommai to amend the Constitution so as to make elementary education a Fundamental Right.
