Democratization, Globalization, Governance, Higher education, Recommendations.


The present paper is an attempt to present the overview of governance of Indian universities along with the structural reforms recommended by different committees appointed by Government of India from time to time based on secondary data collected from various secondary sources including journals, articles, books newspaper and various research based websites. The goal of democratization of human welfare through democratization of higher education cannot be achieved without democratizing the governance structures of educational establishments for which a practical dynamic governance mechanism having openness, participation, accountability, effectiveness, uniformity and coherence is must. Political Considerations in governance matter of universities are the root cause for keeping the best academic talents aloof who are capable of facing challenges for getting the university global recognition. A proper democratic set up of progressive and supportive governance at the highest level can help an organization to reach its goal in the national spirit. No central government could effectively implement all recommendations of committees appointed by government even once since independence. If the universities have to perform their functions properly, it is imperative that the governance structure of the university should be framed in the light of recommendations made by government appointed committees from time to time because those recommendations are meant for implementation and not for formal paper work
