Foreign rating agencies do not satisfy our system: Sukhdeo Thorat

Source : India Education Review
Jan 16, 2013

India should develop their own University ranking system for assessing excellence, Prof. Sukhdeo Thorat told India Education Review in an exclusive interview.

 

“We should develop our own indicators of assessing excellence; we should develop our own rating system. NAAC is developing a methodology which will take care of our own requirement,” said, Prof Sukhdeo Thorat.

 

Thorat said this when asked why none of the Indian universities have been able to figure among the top 200 institutions in the world.  

 

“There is problem there, because the indicators that these agencies take they may not satisfy the way we work here. As per an excellent article written by Prof. Anandakrishna Indian universities are omitted from several categories by these rating agencies. For an example they take universities which have undergraduate programmes, JNU doesn’t have an undergraduate programme so it will not figure in ranking. We should develop our own indicators of assessing excellence, NAAC is developing a methodology which will take care of our own requirement,” he said.

 

Pointing out that ban on recruitment of teachers by many states is the main reason for decreasing quality in higher education, Prof Thorat said, “Quality is an issue and as it is sinking a large number of universities, we need to address this issue. But, measuring quality by those international standards is not fit for us. There are a number of problems with the quality of higher education in this country and the most important problem that we allowed to crop up is the scarcity of faculty.”

 

“This is a major problem at our universities and colleges, particularly in public universities. This is because many state governments put ban on recruitment of faculties in 80s and 90s and started teaching through temporary, outsourced teachers. This was wrong; it should not have happened; you cannot restrict teachers and say that the quality of teaching is bad,” he added.
