More time for comments on foreign university campus issue

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has further extended the deadline to receive feedback on draft norms for setting up campuses of foreign universities in India until 20 February, reports PTI.

UGC Secretary Rajnish Jain said the deadline was extended following requests from stakeholders. “In view of the requests being received from stakeholders to extend [the] last date for submitting feedback, comments and suggestions on [the] draft of ‘Setting up and Operations of Foreign Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in India, Regulations, 2023’, the last date is further extended to February 20,” Jain said in an official order.

The commission had earlier revised the deadline to 3 February. This is the second extension of the deadline. The UGC had last month announced that foreign universities will be able to set up their campuses in India for the first time and unveiled draft norms, under which these universities can also decide on the admission process, fee structure and repatriate its funds back home.
