Technical Education is the crux of the Twentieth Century. Stake holder of Education System and the Society on a whole, felt the need for educating and empowering in the field of technical education. India is no exception. The name India brings out the blend of multi-cultured residents and hitherto was treated as underdeveloped society. But with the advent of Technical Education in India about a century ago, the ever welcoming and excelling country had adapted to this new-culture as well and soon proved its stance in the global scenario. Having said this, teaching and learning process has been slogged in the country for various reasons. The current topic for debate and much submitted to discussion is about the education system in India.
