Today in our country there are many private colleges and Private Universities which are charging heavy fee and Hostel fee to the,students. 

When we were students we used to pay 500 times less fees per annum as we were studying in Government college then.

Today even Government colleges are charging bit on higher side!

Do you agree that today education has become a business?

I completely agree with you. Education has become business now. I do worry about it often. When I was studying school, I had paid almost Rs. 6000 for whole my school life. But Now the fees collected by schools and colleges are unbelievable. LKG Student School fees is 1,50,000 Rupees. When I heard this first, I am literally shocked. The reason is education has become business now. Education has the power to eliminate the poverty of country permanently. So the government should provide free and equal education for all children. Education is very necessary for country's growth.

Unfortunately Government only is promoting such Educational Institutes into commercial Organizations so that they can make good money from the foreign students by inviting them to Indian colleges and Universities for Studying like they are doing in US and Australia.

But since we are unable to attract the students from out side to compensate the expenses incurred the local students are taxed in the form of heavy fees.

People prefer to go to US as they are having job prospectus in US after the graduation where as we don't have that facility here!

With the emergence of private school, truly education has become a business. That means the education business was already there since the beginning.

Yes, that was already flourishing in the past but it was restricted to the influential and rich people. But today an average middle class person avail the loan from the bank for his ward and get education through the money, which was not that easy previously!

It is because everything has improved. Everything goes with the trend. Thus education becomes expensive.

I have to agree. Education now has become more business-oriented. Sad to say, they've become more focused on taking higher fees than providing high quality, standard education. Education now has become below par compared to how it used to be before.

Not just education I think even doctors take their profession as a  money making machine.  Even religious places work on the same lines.

Yes I fully agree with you that education has become business today just like medical field which was earlier known as the most noble profession in the world. But the real worrying part is that standard of education has gone down.

In private schools, it is most likely that they can have some business schemes for students. This is what some parents are commonly whining about.

Unfortunately the authorities have given the permission to the school people to commercialize the education because of which talented poor students are suffering!

This sort of business is flourishing in my country. Everywhere you turn, there's a private school by the corner. Some aren't even as good. They range right from creche down to the university level.

If the public schools were better equipped, more people would send their wards. People started running to private schools because the standard was better hence more expensive.

That is the since the government is unable to provide funds to the Public schools and because of this they don't have good facilities. The private school people take the advantage of this situation and are doing good business!
