The enrolment ratio in higher education is likely to grow to 30 per cent by 2020 because of an increase in the investment in the sector and economic growth, said Higher education secretary Ashok Thakur while speaking at the valedictory session of an international conference on social science research. He further said that the government is encouraging engineering colleges, especially IITs to offer more subjects on humanities.
The event was organised by Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) and International Development Research Center (IDRC). The other participants in the session included academic experts and policy makers from south, south east, and East Asian countries who collectively proposed formation of a social science research network to act as an advocacy platform in the region to strengthen research and its funding.
