We have been informed by our colleagues at J. Sagar Associates that the Foreign Educational Institutions (Regulation of Entry and Operations) Bill, 2010 (“Bill”) was introduced to the Indian Parliament in 2010 and is currently pending approval. The Bill proposes to allow foreign educational institutions to set up campuses in India subject to recognition by the Central Government of the institution. The foreign education providers would have to obtain recognition and approval by the Central Government for the purposes of degree and/or diploma awarding powers in India. There have been concerns raised on the prospect of entry of foreign universities in the Indian higher education market and it has been reported that the Central Government is considering a review of certain clauses in the Bill to address the concerns of Indian universities while also making the prospect of setting up a campus in India more attractive to foreign institutions.
