A paradigm shift has been noticed in higher education now-a-days, from 'national education' to 'global education', from 'one time education for a few' to 'life-long education for all', from 'teacher-centric education' to 'learner centric education'.

Though higher education in India is undergoing rapid changes but in the region of Bodoland Territorial Areas District (BTAD) in the state of Assam, the growth is slow and lagging in every aspect of education. However, the system has many issues of concern at present in the region as well as in the state, like financing and management including access, equity and relevance, reorientation of programmes by laying emphasis on values and ethics and quality of higher education together with the assessment of institutions and their accreditation.

The objectives of the present study is to focused on the overall performance of higher education system, and highlight the emerging issues and challenges of higher education in BTAD.
