Department of Educational Finance
deals with (a) policy issues, (b) planning methodologies and techniques, and (c)
administration procedures and management approaches in financing of education.
The Department focuses its activities - research, training and consultancy -
around three crucial issues in financing of education, viz., mobilization of
governmental and private resources, allocation of resources and utilization of
resources in all levels of education from primary to higher, including formal
and non-formal education. The research concerns of the Department include issues
in public and private financing of education. Mostly, but not exclusively,
research areas in education finances cover policy issues; planning techniques
and management approaches form the content of training programs; and consultancy
includes policy issues as well as planning techniques and management approaches.
