The problems of higher education are manifold: accessibility, affordability, content delivery and the like. Too much emphasis on employability is converting the education system into a factory producing robots and not enlighterned citizens. Leaving the field of higher education to the private sector investment is worsening the situations. Liberal education is beeing neglected. Cost of education is rising so also the burden of educcation loans in India too. Social strife is bound to be the end result.
