Ethics is important in all facets of life. Nowadays, education is believed to be the most important human pursuit. Education ought to be an equitable and socially beneficial activity. Therefore, education itself is insignificant without ethics. As a result, ethics is important and useful in the field of education. This paper discusses the relevance of ethics in India’s educational system and how it fosters a healthy society. Higher education establishments may do a great deal to help the next generation prepare for a promising future. Along with giving the student quality education, it is also need to instill strong ethical values and practices. The morals and principles that are upheld at their colleges and universities have a big impact on the future generation. Many Indian universities are excellent at teaching students to be value-oriented in addition to their academic specializations. But in many colleges and educational institutions, fundamental principles and virtues are also ignored in different ways. Young people will be taught that this is how the world operates and that acting unethically is the only way to achieve professionally if ethics are absent from higher education. The younger generation's character development and formation also depend on education. In such transformative contexts, it is essential to modify higher education systems so that they intentionally inculcate ethical values. It is the higher education system to offer realistic solutions to the problems regarding ethical issues currently facing. The paper discusses the significance, function, and role of ethics in higher education in India.
