Delhi, India, October 09, 2008 --( According to RNCOS new research report “Indian Education Services - A Hot Opportunity”, the education services market in India will be driven by rising private expenditure on education and increasing demand for professional courses.

It is estimated that by 2011-12, it will surpass Rs. 100,000 Crore from just Rs. 26,883 Crore in 2000-01. The rising private expenditure on education will account for 4% to 5% total private expenditure by 2011-12.

Majority of the expenditure on higher education is done through private funding which accounts for more than 50% of the total spending on higher education in the country.
