India's Gross Enrolment Ratio in higher education up by 0.7%

Jan 5:The country's Gross Enrolment Ratio or GER in higher education has registered an increase from 24.5% in 2015-16 to 25.2% in 2016-17, according to the latest edition of the All India Higher Education Survey (AIHES) launched by Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday.
GER is a statistical measure for determining the number of students enrolled in undergraduate, postgraduate and research level studies within the country and is expressed as a percentage of the population.
Although India aims to attain a GER of 30% by 2020, it's still much behind countries like China, which, currently, boasts an enrolment ratio of 43.39%. USA's GER is 85.8% and Pakistan's is 9.93%.
There were a total of 864 universities in the country last year compared to 799 in 2015-16. According to AIHES of 2016-17, Tamil Nadu has the highest GER in the country at 46.9%, which is higher than the national average. Bihar's poor show continues with just 14.9% of its eligible population (in the age group of 18 to 23 years) pursuing higher education. Agencies
