The Hindu : Call to prevent plundering of education sector

In an open session organised by the SFI at Sellur, N. Ram, former Editor-in-Chief, The Hindu, expressed concern that education had become completely commercialised and it had become like a business. “Top corporate houses and industrialists are giving concept papers to Government and they are being implemented. It is all the more worse with medical colleges, where getting a medical seat runs into lakhs. On the one side, we have shortage of doctors whereas on the other side an artificial shortage of medical seats is being created,” he also observed.
