New education policy will arrest brain drain: Pokhriyal at IIT- Indore 8th convocation – education
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said on Monday that the new national education policy will help stop the brain drain and give a boost to research in higher education institutes.
He was addressing via videoconference the eighth convocation ceremony of the Indian Institute of Technology Indore.
“Between 7.5 lakh and 8 lakh of Indian students are studying abroad and this drains Rs 1.5 lakh crore from here to foreign countries. We are going to strengthen the parameters of our campaign ‘stay in India’, for which the investigation will be accelerated within the framework of the new educational policy ”, he said.
He said that those who had studied in India ran some of the world’s great corporations.
Under the new education policy, about 100 top-tier international universities would be invited to India for “knowledge exchange,” the minister said.
He said the Center wants to make higher education institutions an international brand as part of its “study in India” campaign.
He said that 50,000 foreign students had signed up for admission to institutes in the country, but the measure has currently stalled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
