Govt may allow IITs, IIMs to open campus abroad

It was hinted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) that it may be open, down the line, to the idea of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) opening campuses in foreign countries. After declining a proposal from IIM-Bangalore to open a campus in Singapore, MHRD had said the Memorandum of Association (MoA) of IIM-B does not empower the institute to open campuses abroad.

However, Union minister of state for education, D Purandeswari, left a door open on the issue in her reply to a query on the subject in the Rajya Sabha. To another query on the Central University in Himachal Pradesh being a non-starter, Purandeswari told the House that the person appointed as the vice-chancellor has declined the offer and the process for selecting someone else had started.
