US is keen on removing barriers that limits the American educational institutions from setting up campuses in India. William Burns said US schools want to partner with India and set up institutions here.
Foreign Educational Institution (Regulation of Entry and Operation) Bill, 2010 is still pending with the parliament and is approved by the cabinet. According to the bill any institution willing to set up campus in India will have to go through a process of scrutiny.
With the passing of the bill foreign institutes can set up campuses in India and this is sure to increase the level of education in India. This will also serve as a boon for students who wish to study in foreign institutions and travel long distances away from home country to study there.
