There has been voicing disappointments over Indian Universities lagging behind in research globally. India's growth economy has been contracted since 2010-11. Our country needs more universities and technical education in the long run. Standards have to be increased to a level undisputedly and place themselves among the top fifty in the world. Standardized high education in teaching and research has to be given to all students in return for up gradation and investment of resources with changing times.
Develop a curriculum constantly to encourage growth of research and innovation. There are certain reflections on the lagging of research recorded below
Latest technology in colleges should be present in order to impart quality education. Engage outstanding faculty in every colleges and they in return should be well versed with the changing syllabus and curriculum constantly. Research and innovation should be present in every field. Financial assistance should be provided including scholarships and education loans by the government bodies.
An investigation of research publications around the world says that India is best ranked in terms of scientific research output. But when it comes to scientific research papers, universities lag behind in providing them. Only one university named University of Hyderabad ranked in the top 10 list of institutes contributed towards India's research output in 2008 and 2009. Scientific institutes who contributed in the long run are the Indian Institute of Science atBengaluru, the Indian Statistical Institute at Kolkata, IITs and Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) institutes.
The overall contribution of Indian universities towards the country's total output is minimal because they have additional burden in teaching. Funding for research is also not sufficient as they are very competitive funds and one has to fight hard to get it. Only one out of ten projects succeeds in the long run. India's major contribution to the scientific world has been around 38 percent for chemistry field, 4.8 percent in computer science, 3.5 percent in health science and 4.3 percent in medical sphere. Strengthening of research capabilities in chemistry should be improvised as this will lead to progress in the near future.
There is global share of articles with international co-authors rising but declining in India because of the lack of collaboration with the overseas universities. Introducing strict accountability of public money for any research in any college or university. Money spent should be noted in an open source and should be informed to public about the outcome of the expenses.
Less of increased opportunities for students in semi-urban and rural areas to avail the service of transparent selection for fellowship/scholarships, recruitments and transparent information dissemination. Private institutes and universities should follow minimum standard to give degrees to all the candidates and generate useful and economic lifestyle.
Nothing has changed so far in India as it still has the remarkable amount of research capabilities. For this the colleges and universities has to come together, work hand in hand simultaneously for the country as well as for the student's career upbringing. Promote quality education and reduce the fees to free of cost in several areas will in the long run impact on the whole society.
