The country faces a demand-supply mismatch as the economy needs more skilled workforce, as also the managers and entrepreneurs, than supplied annually. In fact, majority of the contemporary institutions of higher learning remain almost disconnected with the requirements of the workplace. The colleges in the country are also varied in terms of types of courses, duration, infrastructure, quality of faculty, quality of content etc. the best and the most selective universities generate too few graduates, and new private colleges are producing graduates of uneven quality and there is a challenge in creating a robust and continuous pipeline of talent.
