"Private universities can be imaginative, innovative, experimental, open to collaboration with Indian and foreign universities, willing to allocate resources to disciplines and areas that are most likely to yield results, and train their faculty to international standards. In so doing they can show by example what the state and other Indian universities at their best are capable of achieving, and create a climate in which enough pressure is exerted on all universities to deliver high quality education."
