Shimla: India had been experimenting on higher education after the independence but the required growth and excellence had remained unachieved, Himachal Pradesh University V-C ADN Bajpai on Tuesday said.
He was inaugurating the three-week long special winter school "Challenges in Higher Education" programmes for the teachers here.
"The state-funded universities are suffering due to financial constraints and law and order situation was worst almost in all the universities and colleges of the country," he claimed.
He further said that the prevailing casual atmosphere should be removed with more responsibilities on the teachers of the university and colleges who should work and run the administration very effectively.
About 60 teachers from universities and colleges across the country are participating in the first winter school, organised by the Academic Staff College, UGC.
