Summary or Abstract : Even after five decades of independence, the total resources available to Indian higher education are not adequate and are also not being used efficiently. In addition, tertiary education continues to suffer from inequalities of gender, region, and class. In the present context of budget deficits, privatization and cost recovery (tuition/fees) seem like valid options. However, on reviewing the various alternatives carefully it becomes evident that there is no single policy that is economically efficient, socially desirable, and at the same time practically feasible, for the goals of equity, efficiency, and mobilization of resources for the overall education system. The finance minister's White Paper of 1994 questioned the policy of subsidizing Indian higher education, and recommended cost recovery from students in colleges and universities across the nation. Cost recovery by it self can be highly regressive and can restrict access for the poor. It can worsen access and equity objectives if proper steps are not taken to systematize procedures of scholarships and financial assistance, especially for those students belonging to low-income and other disadvantaged groups, or enrolling in expensive professional disciplines. It is very important to introduce financial assistance along with tuition and other forms of user fees. Thus, while a beginning towards cost recovery has been made, the time is right for policy makers, in higher education, to thoroughly examine the issues of financial assistance and access, and frame suitable policies and methodologies for the same.
