Higher Education

In 2021-22, how much has the government of India proposed to spend on higher education? How much has it increased or decreased from the last fiscal year?

Dear @aakansha

Thanks for your question.
I request our colleague who works extensively on the Education sector, @protiva to respond to this.

Hi Aakansha!

The Department of Higher Education has been allocated Rs.38351 crore in the FY 2021-22. The Budget Estimates for FY 2020-21 was Rs.39467 crore. This data shows that there has been a 3% decrease in this year’s allocation as compared to the previous fiscal year. Thanks!
