On completion of three years of the Narendra Modi government, Newsclick brings you a series of interviews with various experts on different issues. In this part, Newsclick talks to Abha Dev Habib, Professor at the University of Delhi and also a former member of Delhi University’s executive council. She makes three important points: one explaining how the tenure of Modi government so far has been devastating for higher education; how this government is aggressively pushing the agenda of privatisation and commercialisation of higher education; two, how the government is attacking the autonomy of universities; and three, how the whole university system is under attack under Modi's rule. Abha also insists that the concept of university ratings is nothing but another push towards privatisation.
