Delay for Legislation on Foreign Higher Ed in India

November 30, 2009

Legislation in India to allow foreign universities to create branches in the country, and to create a system for regulating them, has been delayed, The Calcutta Telegraph reported. The legislation, rather than moving forward, will be reviewed to resolve differences among various government agencies. The newspaper characterized the review as placing the bill "into cold storage." Universities in the United States and elsewhere, many of which have been hoping to enter the market in India, have been watching the bill and hoping for its passage.
