Indians to get foreign degrees sitting here

Indians to get foreign degrees sitting here
Clearing the air about foreign educational institutions entering the Indian market, Union Human Resource and Development (HRD) minister MM Pallam Raju has said that the move ‘was in the offing’.

In an exclusive interview with Millennium Post on Tuesday, Pallam Raju said: ‘I think it is very apparent that there is a shortage of quality higher education capacity in the country. In order to bridge that gap, we must look at all kinds of channels. Definitely, foreign education providers are one of those channels. That is the reason why the bill (Foreign Educational Institutions Bill) was introduced and the standing committee had its observations regarding it.’

‘We are hoping that we will be able to bring in foreign education providers to establish their educational institutes in India at an early date,’ said Raju. Does this mean we will soon get new institutes in India that are affiliated to foreign universities? ‘That could be in the offing,’ said Raju.
Pallam Raju, who was earlier minister of state for defence, said that working in the HRD ministry was a very ‘enabling and positive experience’ for him. ‘Both the ministries have been a great experience for me. I have learnt a lot in the ministry of defense while the education ministry has an enabling environment, where you can experiment and take new initiatives,’ said the minister.
