The value of and 0 were invented by none other than an Indian astrologer. Then in medieval history due to some socio economical factors it was diminished somehow and the spread of literacy and education got affected. During colonial era Macaulay’s system of education was imposed just to produce clerks. Today with 740 Universities, 33023 Colleges and more than 18 million students, education network of India is the 3rd largest network in the world after China and USA. But it is very hard to note that India is lagging behind in enrollment ratio in world scenario. The purpose of study was to know the present scenario of higher education in India, to analyze its challenges and suggest recommendations for further improvement. The information and data have been collected from secondary data, official website of UGC, other related published papers, seminar reports, books, economic survey of India and views were collected from P. G. students of Dr R P C A U too. Age old culture of intellectual enquiry has been replaced by performance indicators, quality assurance, and quantitative output and all have encompasses the universities into a stressful union. The challenges of higher education have become a matter of concern not only in India but in all over the world. It has become a question of utmost importance that what policies should be followed by the institutions of higher education which can prepare the future of world with a steel determination to face the upcoming situation.
