Foreign Universities May Come to India

19 Jul 16

The Commerce Ministry has initiated a discussion with the Human Resource Development (HRD) upon allowing foreign universities to open up campuses within the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) as it will allow them to avoid heavy restrictions placed under Indian rules. SEZs are territories where India’s domestic tariffs do not apply and companies located in these areas have to pay export and import taxes to transact with the rest of the country.
Recovery of profits by these educational institutions, barred under Indian law, will be among the main benefits they will gain by setting up these campuses. Opening doors to foreign universities will not only help in addressing the shortage of quality education institutions in the country, but will also draw students from other parts of Asia, and reduce the need of local students to spend large amounts of money to study abroad. Easy availability of land is also an attraction.
Indian students may still have to pay in foreign currency to study in such institutions. “The whole idea is if they are going to consume services in the UK, Canada, and Australia, why not next door?” said an official of the Commerce Ministry. However, it may be difficult to implement such a proposal without much debate, he added.
India has been considering allowing the set up of foreign universities and granting students independent degrees since 2010.
