Every now and then, the government highlights its intentions
of making Indian an education hub for the students from India and other
countries. But little concrete has been done in the regard. This recent announcement
is another attempt by the government to walk on the same line.
The central government has made arrangements to set up an
administrative structure to make 10 government and 10 private education organizations
as world-class educating and research foundations, the central HRD minister,
Smriti Irani informed the Lok Sabha on Tuesday.
She was quoted saying as, "There is a proposition to
set up an administrative design to empower ten government run and ten private
foundations to rise as world-class instructing and research establishments".
The answer from the minister was in response to the
questions asked by BJP colleague Uday Pratap Singh on whether the legislature
has distinguished or proposes to recognize government run colleges or
associations that can take India's brand name to the global stage in the field
of training and research.
The HRD minister said the legislature has not yet designated
any financial assets for the idea but rather will give sufficient backing to
help 10 government run organizations.
"The points of interest of the same are being worked
out including finalizing the institutions" she said.
