How many educational institutions are there in India?
More than 17000 colleges
It is important to know that education in India is provided by the public sector as well as the private sector. The main idea is that the control and funding come from three levels: central, state, and local. Keep in mind that 80% of all schools are government schools making the government the major provider of education. Anyway, because of poor quality of public education, 27% of Indian children are privately educated. It is important to know that there are more than 17,000 colleges, 20 central universities, 217 State universities, 106 Deemed Universities.
