November 21, 2019 08:29 pm | Updated 08:55 pm IST

Subsidy in higher education produces positive externalities, such as good health, reduction in population growth, poverty, crime, and strengthening of democracy. Yet, there is a growing demand for removal of subsidies in higher education from some sections of society, as seen by the recent events and discussion taking place around Jawaharlal Nehru University.

Sharing their views in this podcast are Professors Yoginder K. Alagh (former JNU Vice-Chancellor) and Shyam Menon (Central Institute of Education, University of Delhi).
