Universal human values (UHV) play a significant role in the whole life of a human being. These values in the education system are necessary to create effective students who will bring the nation to greater height. However, the present education system just focuses on acquiring large amounts of information, passing examinations and procuring many higher degrees for the job. Thus, the people after getting the job only focus on earning more money, while giving less importance to relationship and right understanding. This results in number of problems at individual levels (depression, anxiety, stress, suicides, etc.), family level (breaking up of joint families, divorce, dowry, deaths etc.) and society level (growing incidence of terrorism, violence, communism, racial and ethnic struggle, wars and sex crimes etc.). Hence, this paper advocates about the basis of human values and the issues that the students face before learning the value based education and the positive changes that happens after understanding of value based education. This leads to technically skilled and morally strong professionals and even helps in enhancing more opportunities in their life.
