It has been forecasted that 23 Universities will reach the top 200 of the World by 2030 and the country will have at least six new Nobel laureates. Share of private sector in education system has grown from 42 percent to 64 percent from 2001 to 2014.Private sector will have 80 % share of the students. There are three tiers of higher education institutions in the world. They include foundation institutions, career focused institutions and research focused institutions. Taking in to account the potential requirement India need both Career focused and research oriented institutions to become world class institutions. In order to achieve the target envisaged in Vision 2030, best practices amongst governance structure in non public Universities in India must be analyzed. This study will highlight the best practices followed in non public Universities in the country which can be taken as a bench mark developing 23 world class Universities in the Country; Says Dr.B.Ashok, Vice Chancellor, KVASU and Principal investigator of the project.
