Indore, October 19

Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank' on Monday said the new national educational policy would help arrest brain drain and give a boost to research in higher education institutes.

He was addressing through video conference the 8th convocation ceremony of the Indian Institute of Technology, Indore.

"Between 7.5 lakh to 8 lakh Indian students are studying abroad and this drains out Rs 1.5 lakh crore from here to foreign countries. We are going to strengthen parameters under our 'stay in India' campaign for which research will be put on the fast-track under the new education policy," he said.

The minister said those who had studied in India were leading some of the big corporations in the world.

Under the new education policy, some 100 top international universities would be invited to India for "knowledge exchange", said the minister.

He said the Centre wanted to make higher education institutions an international brand under its 'Study in India' campaign.

He said 50,000 foreign students had registered for admission in institutes in the country but the move had been stalled currently due to the coronavirus outbreak. PTI
