India is a rising star in world economy and innovations. However, despite growing investment in education India's universities face serious problems. Prime minister Manmohan Sing, stated in 2008: "Our university system is in a state of disrepair. In almost half the districts in the country, higher education enrollments are abysmally (incredibly) low, almost two-thirds of our universities and 90 per cent of our colleges are rated as below average on quality parameters. There are complaints of favoritism and corruption."
