The Economic Times reports that education has emerged one of the most lucrative sectors in India, making private equity investors line up in big numbers to the $80-billion plus industry.

Numbers crunched by education-focused private equity fund Kaizen Management Advisors show that venture capitalists and private equity players have pumped in excess of $140 million so far this year, 50% more than what they invested in the whole of 2009.

“We feel the education sector offers tremendous growth potential and is poised for rapid growth in the next few years,” says Ramesh Venkat, chief executive of Reliance Equity Advisors, a private equity arm of Reliance Capital, which entered the segment a few months ago by investing about Rs 100 crore in Pathways World School, a primary and higher secondary school.
