ABSTRACT. The paper places itself in the contemporary context of precarisation of labour and shows how in the Indian context the state is working overtime as an agent of private capital. Despite this the opposition has been weakening as collective bodies like that of teachers have been disappearing. The teacher’s failure to emerge as a struggling collective is because of how they have been historically looked at, conceptualized not as workers but having a distinct status. Today it is impossible to differentiate between factory and educational workers and unless this is realized it would be difficult to struggle against the rule of capital. pp. 272–290

Keywords: neoliberalism; commodification of education; labour aristocracy; oppression and consensualisation
