  • Tracks Trends: This data helps track trends in areas like student preferences (Arts, Science, Engineering etc.), faculty-student ratio, and institutional growth.
  • Informs Policy: The information gathered by AISHE is crucial for the MoE to formulate informed policies and strategies for the development of higher education in India.

Benefits of AISHE:

  • Provides Insights: AISHE offers valuable insights for institutions to benchmark themselves and identify areas for improvement.
  • Supports Planning: By understanding the current state of higher education, policymakers can plan for future needs like infrastructure development or faculty training.
  • Increases Transparency: The data collected by AISHE promotes transparency in the higher education sector.

In essence, AISHE serves as a vital tool for monitoring, evaluating, and improving the quality and reach of higher education in India.
