The number of foreigners coming to India for educational purposes had gone up “significantly” under the current government and the country was becoming a “hub of quality education”, Union minister, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said on Thursday.
Speaking at a meeting with a seven-member delegation of a Malaysia-based organisation, PINTA, at the Antyodaya Bhawan, the minority affairs minister reiterated the Centre’s commitment towards the educational empowerment of all sections of the society, including the minorities.
An official statement quoted Naqvi as saying that the government had been successful in providing a better atmosphere for quality education in the backward areas of the country.
“The number of students coming to India from other countries for educational activities has increased significantly during the last three years of the (Narendra) Modi government,” the statement said. It, however, did not reveal the number of foreign students who came to India during this period.Posted in National
