- In 2019, about 7 lakh 50,000 Indian students attended foreign universities
- The government’s goal to increase the seat is to prevent promising students from going abroad.
From the new academic session this year, the seats of top institutes such as IIT, NIT and IISc will be increased. The Modi government will increase these seats by 50 percent as part of its election manifesto by 2024. Not only that, to ensure high quality education and employment abroad, new courses are added based on market demand.
The aim is to prevent promising students from going abroad
Last week, a meeting chaired by Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Minister of Personnel Development, discussed higher education, booster seat and the number of Institutes of Eminence (IOE). The government’s goal to increase the seat is to prevent promising students from going abroad.
The same facilities are being introduced in Indian educational institutions for subjects and courses at which Indian students enroll to study at foreign universities. To this end, seats will also increase with the introduction of such courses and degree programs in the country’s best institutions, including IIT, NIT.
Courses that offer market demand and employment will begin
In that order, the market demand in the final program and the maximum number of seats in the course offering employment will increase so that the students can stay in India to complete a higher quality education. According to the data, around 7 lakh 50,000 Indian students at foreign universities increased for higher education in 2019.
IOE status for 30 institutions in the country
The Institute of Eminence will now be 50 instead of 30. Initially there were 20, 10 of which were state and 10 private institutions. However, their number was increased to 30 in 2018. As part of this, 20 institutions have received UGC IOE status so far.
