Technical Education in India is at cross roads. The proliferation of institutions across the entire spectrum of the technical education domain in India as a response to the demand of the industry is able to cater to the quantitative requirements. Most of the institutions are characterized by knowledge dissemination activity. The qualitative requirements are not met. Reports speak of a very small percentage of the output being employable and a minuscule percentage is going for higher education. The technical education system is unable to meet the requirements of neither the industry nor the research nor higher education completely.
There are specific attempts from the policy makers to address the issue of improving the quality. This includes even the attempts at private sector as well. These attempts have not been able to produce significant impact as the approach was characterized by a push operation – of the expectations in terms of norms, that too only from the statutory bodies.
It is proposed to present studies on the reasons for the current state. A holistic model for quality improvement in technical education is proposed. The model is essentially a push – pull model. Engaging the stake holders of the system right from strategic planning to implementation and doing assessment of outcomes can guarantee the success. The producer–consumer relationship within the components of the system uses push–pull phenomenon to communicate expectations and service delivery.
