  2. STUDY IN INDIA . The Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) in collaboration with Ministry of External Affairs has approved 'Study in India' programme to attract foreign students to pursue higher education in India. The programme is similar to initiative launched by Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and Canada. It aims at boosting country's share of international students and subsequently, improve global reputation and rankings of Indian educational institutions.

  3. Objectives Encourage more foreign students to choose India as destination for higher education. Double India's market share of global education exports from less than 1% to 2%

  4. KEY POINTS The programme will provide meritorious foreign students fee waiver and scholarship. It will target students from 30 countries, primarily in Asia and Africa, including Nepal, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Malaysia, Thailand, Egypt, Iran, Kuwait, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Rwanda among others.

  5. Government will offer complete fee waiver to top 25% meritorious applicants, 50% fee waiver to the next 25% applicants and 25% waiver to the next 25% foreign students.

  6. The proposed fee waiver and scholarship will be decided by institute concerned based on predefined structure. The institutes concern will bear expenditure on fee waiver based on cross-subsidization or through its existing funding. The seats for foreign students will not affect number of seats which are meant for Indian students in any educational institute.

  7. The government, at present, permits provision of 10% to 15% supernumerary seats for foreign students in higher education. This provision remains largely underutilized across universities and colleges. Currently, India is home to about 45,000 international students, which accounts for just 1% of global student mobility. It was one the reason for Indian institutes lower global rankings. By launching Study in India programme, government hopes to attract 1.5 lakh to 2 lakh international students by 2022.
