While the former emanates from the funding agency, mostly the Government, State or Central the latter is anchored to the top administrative layer of the institution. The one is by design and the other is by bureaucratic choice in an otherwise free academic environment. Consequently, when an institution has an ever-expanding role, the pervasiveness and impact of fund shortage and financial centralization are both getting more extensive and intensive on its performance or accomplishment. The crucial test of efficiency and effectiveness of Institution administration lies in the fulfillment of the stipulated objectives of higher education. Its policy must effectuate into successful programmes and consistently seek to strive for them, failing which, ends up in an administrative abortion.
