Government should stop funding IITs and IIMs instead, divert funds to primary education.


  • India is not a developed country and literacy ratio in India is very low so, government should focus on education of poor people rather than, spending huge money on small group of population.

  • Students, who are receiving higher education in India, are migrating out of India, serving other nation's that is really awful.

  • India is a democratic country. Democracy can only be successful if everyone is literate and that could be achieved by focusing on primary education.

  • Spending huge amount of money on IIT & IIM is like dividing nation in 2 different groups. One group cannot even afford primary education whereas; other group is receiving higher education on government grant.

  • Most of the people going for IITs & IIMs are self-capable, so government should make all these institutes self-financed and stop funding.


  • India is still in development phase so; we need these institutes to promote our young talent on international platform.

  • It is true that students from IITs & IIMs are migrating but they are sending back money to country eventually that money is being utilized in India.

  • In this phase of development in which nation is going through, we need more talent, so we need better higher education for youngsters in India.

  • For growth we need innovative minds so we need people who are Indians and who can create better systems for us. IIT's and IIM's are producing such brains.

  • Students from other countries are travelling to India for higher education in these institutes so, eventually revenue is coming back.


  • We can't compare primary education, which is gigantic with IITs & IIMs which is concentrated to small population.

  • IITs and IIMs can be self-financed but students should get scholarship in case of fee hike.

Point: Today in our developing economy government is making such good efforts by coming up with the IIT and IIMs, yes its a good sector where government is investing because a job oriented education is needed, to participate in the development process but the no.of institution should be increased to reach all the areas and sections of country. If we talk about primary and secondary education then yes government need to invest more in this sector of education because this education will prepare students to go for the further skill related education.

Point: At some point it is true that students @ iits and iims level are self capable but the hard work and dedication they show to get this platform is not to be underestimated. On the other part govt launched huge schemes and policy for the poor children to make them literate and if they have capability to gain higher education govt provide scholarships to them . So govt is funding to both .

Point: First thing is fee for primary education is very low..parents can afford it.for those ppl who cant afford this they must go to govt schools.if still they cant afford little school fee,well such people should not marry.If govt dont give fund to IIT or IIM institute fee will be so high that only rich people can study..then what will happen to those poor students who are talented and knowledge ?

Point: goverment should focus on primery eduction we have seen in recent days private school are not in the mood of giving primery education to poor after implementing "right to education" they have challenged it in court therefor without base we cannot build piller but iim and iit should be given funding because we should think about ecnmically weak stuents also
