New Delhi: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has extended the date for comments, suggestions, and feedback for the body’s draft regulations on campuses of foreign universities in India till February 3, 2023.
The stakeholders can send suggestions and comments to [email protected].
“In view of the requests being received from the stakeholders to extend the last date for submitting comments/suggestions/feedback on the aforesaid draft Regulations, the last date for receiving comments on the draft regulations is hereby extended to 3rd February 2023,” read the notification by UGC.
India has witnessed an outflow of 28-30 billion dollars with more than 6 lakh Indian students now studying abroad which is why UGC is trying to bring foreign varsities to the country so a huge proportion of the young talent remains in India while also pursuing cheaper education.
Foreign universities that factor into the top 500(overall or subject-wise) of international university rankings will be welcome to set up their campuses in India. Those universities that do not participate in these rankings but have a distinguished reputation due to their research and publications will also be allowed to open up a campus after approval from UGC.
