According to Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has the potential to become a global board in the Global South given its popularity in the area.

The Union Minister stated in a press conference on the sidelines of the G20’s fourth working group meeting on education that the UGC is now drafting the rules that would permit international universities to establish campuses in the nation in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP).

“Recently, I had the chance to speak with a person from Singapore who oversees CBSE schools in Singapore and Japan. While diaspora students attend CBSE schools in Singapore, I was shocked to hear that the CBSE board and methodology are also very popular in Japan. I was informed that the teaching of mathematics and other topics is in demand,” he remarked.

In response to a question regarding foreign universities that are permitted to open campuses in India under the National Education Policy (NEP), Pradhan stated that the UGC is refining its regulations to permit such offsite campuses. The Minister’s enigmatic response regarding Indian universities opening campuses abroad was that more specific announcements would be made soon.
