SummaryEducation sector experts have questioned the string of legislative proposals cleared by the government. Of the three Bills for the sector cleared by the Union Cabinet on Friday

over some technical and medical institutes and universities resorting to unfair practices. These include charging capitation fee and demanding donations, not issuing receipts for payments made by or on behalf of students, admission to professional programmes of study through non-transparent and questionable processes, low-quality delivery of education services not in keeping with promises made, misleading advertisements in the media with an intention to cheat, unqualified or ineligible teaching faculty, and forcible withholding of certificates and other documents.

So while the need for such regulations is recognized, the sector has concerns over its flip side. With the proposed legislation aiming to curb capitation fee, private institutes have reservations over the practicality of the ministrys guidelines and whether they would be able to offer good standards of education with limited resources.
