Infrastructural Challenges in Higher Education Towards Inclusive Growth of Human Resources

Ravi Kumar


The paper studies the infrastructural challenges in higher education that has formulated as a hindrance towards the growth of young Human Resource (HR) and meets the requirement of employment. The study starts with an overview of the higher education in India, growth and progress, and identifies five important infrastructural challenges viz.:
a) Teachers/Faculties; b) Teachers’ teaching aids; c) Learning materials and teaching methods; d) Building and accessories; and e) Infrastructure surrounding educational institutes. Methodologically, the paper is descriptive in nature as it tries to narrate the facts rather than provide statistical evidence based on observation and/or field investigation. The aforementioned bottlenecks discussed in the study are not confined to rural areas alone, but are universal as could be witnessed in majority of the colleges and universities in the semi-urban, urban settings as also in the metro cities, to a significant extent. It was identified that all the five factors have a massive negative impact on the growth and development of the youth with regard to internalising knowledge in terms of mentalising the learning and creating avenues for either wage- or self-employability and has to be address seriously with remedies to stop further obliteration which is the very purpose of this paper.
