Education in India was for a long time imparted by private teachers in their own houses. They were scattered all over the country but they congregated in large numbers in certain places on account of the facilitates they got in their work. Such places were usually the capitals of kingdom or holy places. Kings and princes in those days were patrons of learning and so learned Brahmans were attracted to yhier courts. That is why Taxila, Kannanj, Pathiputra, Mithila etc. Became famous centres of learning. As the pilgrims supplied a subsidiary source of income to the famous teachers residing at holy places these places became centres of learning eg., Benaras, Ranchi, Nasik and Karnataka. In the present book an attempt has been made to analyse the privatisation Education in India.
