The ratio of children opting for higher studies has remained fairly static over the last four years but the silver lining is the narrowing of the gender gap with more girls now going to college, according to the All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE) unveiled by HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar Friday.
The survey shows that India registered its best performance on the Gender Parity Index (GPI) in the last seven years — 0.94 in 2016-17 from 0.86 in 2010-11 (see box). It shows that in at least seven states — Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, J&K, Nagaland, Sikkim and Kerala — women in higher education out number men. In J&K, the total number of women students overtook men only two years ago.
