HRD trying to bring foreign universities in India

Smriti Irani has decided to focus on a legal framework for allowing foreign universities to set up campuses in India and curb unfair practices by education institutions as part of the human resources ministry’s legislative agenda, a government official said. In doing so, the minister hopes to address the questions of increasing access and improving quality of higher education institutions in the country. “The Foreign Education Providers Bill and the Prohibition of Unfair Practices Bill are on the priority list of the minister. We will have to go through the entire process – circulating a Cabinet note, discussions with the legislative department, then Cabinet approval, then vetting by the standing committee, before the Bill can be taken up for discussion and passage by Parliament,” an official said on the conditions of anonymity.
