India has one of the largest education markets as per a study in 2006 (in terms of the potential number of students) in the world. India has one of the largest populations of people globally under the age of twenty eight and growing day by day. Recognizing the huge potential, there are significant planned outlays for education sector in Indian subcontinent. The Indian education market is currently poorly-serviced, with only around 210 million students enrolled in more than one million schools (K-12). The Indian governmentmachinery (both at the central and state level) owns approximately 85% of all of the schools in India. It is estimated that there are currently approximately 120 million students who should be enrolled in school but are not a part of the education system due to various economic and social reasons. The higher education system is also highly poorly-serviced with around 14 million students as of 3rd March, 2007 in 378 universities and 18,064 colleges. The private, not for profit sector owns over 75% of institutions and accounts for 64% of enrolled students. There is a need of more privately held, not for profit educational institutes in India.
On the basis of the above scenario it is not possible to educate all the prospect students through regular colleges in regular time. Distance Education can cater this gap and it is possible to educate all the prospect students through distance education irrespective of time and geographical boundaries.
