  Abstract: A look at the syllabus of BA, MA and other courses of English of the major universities in India reveals that British Literature forms almost eighty percent of the syllabus. The universities also offer a paper on Indian English Literature which comprises Indian writers who have produced works in English. Although the classification itself remains controversial.

The above-mentioned trend in English Studies in India began to face challenges from eminent scholars and thinkers due to its colonial attitude, especially after the publication of Gauri Viswanathan’s Masks of Conquests: Literary Study and British Rule in India (1990). The last decade of the twentieth century witnessed serious attempts on the part of Indian academicians and scholars to question the relevance of teaching British Literature in post-colonial India.
