AbstractDemocratization of higher education with its significant constituents such as productivity, performance and control, impelled in the 1990s in India with its tripartite pillars- expansion, equity and excellence in fact brought forth a paradigmatic shift from thin elite to mass higher education. In terms of quantity India has obviously made appreciable growth; but it is equally if not more fundamental to assess the quality and not quantity of Indian higher education system as it is a potential tool instrumental in building knowledge-based society in the 21st century. Hence this paper succinctly attempts to deliberate on the issue of “quality” in Indian Higher Education system as countries across geopolitical borders vie one another to excel in an age marked by unprecedented pace of change and development.
