3 rd Edition


It all begins at the foundation level which refers to those early years that start from pre-school. Gradually, a child step-by-step goes through middle school, high school, and finally moves to higher education before getting a job or starting their own business. As easy as this may sound, the journey is nothing but a rollercoaster ride.

To be sure, the education sector in India is expected to reach $225 billion by FY25, as per India Brand Equity Foundation. The sector was estimated to be worth $117 billion in FY20. Total number of children enrolled in schools stood at 26.5 crore, with 19.4 lakh additional children enrolled between primary and higher secondary levels in FY22, revealed the Economic Survey 2022-23. GER in higher secondary schools has made significant improvement from 53.8% in 2021-21 to 57.6% in 2021-22, the survey added. In 2021-22, over 12.29 crore girls were enrolled in primary to higher secondary showing an increase of 8.19 lakh. As per the survey, in FY22, nearly one crore children were enrolled in pre-primary, 12.2 crore in primary, 6.7 crore in upper primary, 3.9 crore in secondary and 2.9 crore in higher secondary.


Meanwhile, the total enrollment in higher education increased to nearly 4.14 crore in 2020-21 from 3.85 crore in 2019-20, as per All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) 2020-2021. Since 2014-15, there has been an increase of around 72 lakh in the enrolment (21%), said the survey. The female enrolment has increased to 2.01 crore from 1.88 crore in 2019-20. There has been an increase of around 44 lakh (28%) since 2014-15. Not to mention, female GER has overtaken male GER since 2017-18. As for the Gender Parity Index (GPI), the ratio of female GER to male GER has increased from 1 in 2017-18 to 1.05 in 2020-21.

As per data released in AISHE, the total number of universities or university-like institutions registered is 1,113, while colleges are 43,796 and standalone institutions are 11,296. During FY21, the number of universities increased by 70 and the number of colleges by 1,453. Not to mention, 43% universities and 61.4% colleges are located in rural areas.

Meanwhile, the Indian ed-tech market is expected to reach $30 billion by 2031, from $700-800 million in 2021. According to KPMG, India has also become the second largest market for e-learning after the US. The online education market in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost 20% to reach $2.28 billion during 2021-25. At this year’s India Education Summit, we aim to embark on a journey based on the theme, “From foundation to higher education - creating a child-centric education system to understand why it is important to focus on early years of education and the journey.”
