Increase enrolement ratio in higher education

President Pranab Mukherjee called for increasing substantially the gross enrolment ratio of students in higher education. He said there had been a phenomenal expansion of physical infrastructure of higher education with over 735 universities and 37,000 colleges. Yet the enrolment ratio of students in higher education in India was well behind U.S. and Germany. On the potential of shipping industry, the President pointed oct that only about 10 per cent of the country’s trade was carried out through Indian ships.
