India and Foreign Education, From producing CEO in companies like Microsoft and Google to scientist in prestigious research centres, Indian universities have come a long way. According to our PM Narendra Modi, our universities can do better than the international universities like Yale, Oxford and Stanford.
In South Asia, around 750,000 students spend around $ 15 billion each year pursue education overseas but Modi government is trying to push the education sector in our country so, that students don’t have to leave their country. Now, in order to regulate the function of the welcomed universities, new and separate legislation has been approved by the government. This is a great challenge for the ruling party because they have stepped forward to change the long ancestral education policy.
