The education system in India is rapidly evolving across all levels of learning, from primary to university-level education. With over 250 million school-going population, India is home to the world’s largest population of young people in the age bracket of 5-24 years old, according to a report by India Brand Equity Foundation. Currently, the sector is brimming with opportunities for edtech start-ups, universities and educational institutes, including instituting vocational training. The technology-led and online education market in India is expected to be valued at USD 313 billion by 2030, according to a report released by AspireCircle.
To stay ahead of the curve, entities operating in the sector must effectively interpret the changing policies and regulations that can directly impact the business.
