Responsibility for ICT and Higher Education After independence India has made great traverses in the growth and development of education. The consecutive Education Commissions operated by Radhakrishnan, Kothari and other prominent educationists had thrown open teaching to all parts of our society i.e., poor and rich, women and men, urban and rural, backward and frailest of the weaker Sections. There has been dazzling growth of colleges from 20 to about 700 Universities from 435 to 25 and student registration from one lakh to 116 crore. However, literacy rate today is 52% only, out of which 77% people are in urban areas and 23% are in rural areas. Further, only about 10 % of the population in the relevant age-group is enrolled in higher education and a mere five per cent graduate with degrees.
