HRD plans web portal for Indians studying abroad
The Ministry of Human Resource Development plans to shortly launch a web portal that will offer information regarding the authenticity of universities and courses abroad for Indian students.

NEW DELHI: Concerned over the fate of Indian students who were enrolled in the now-derecognised Tri-Valley University (TVU) in the United States, the Human Resource Development Ministry has asked Educational Consultants India Limited (EdCIL) to prepare a project report on creating and maintaining a web page that could be dedicated to students abroad.

EdCIL, a public sector undertaking, offers consultancy and technical services in different areas of education, not only within the country but also on a global basis.

The Ministry proposes to set up the web portal where all information regarding universities and educational institutions abroad would be available with the click of a mouse. The website would be updated so as to provide the latest information on the authenticity of the institutions and the courses offered by them so that the students aspiring to study abroad are not dumped as has happened in the case of TVU.
