Come and study in India: India`s US envoy tells American students
Washington, India saw its best phase of macro-economic stability in the past five years and is set to become the fifth largest economy in the world by the end of this year, the country`s top diplomat in the US has said, urging the young American students to come and study in India. Speaking at the ongoing 71st Annual Conference and Expo of Association of International Educators, India`s ambassador to the US Harsh Vardhan Shringla said the University Grants Commission (UGC) is a statutory organisation established for the coordination, determination and maintenance of standards of university education. The UGC even hosts the list of fake education institutions in India on its website so that there is no fraud with the students, he said. "You are guaranteed of the excellent quality education as we have a robust ranking/accreditation system, which you may study while taking admission in Indian University," Shringla said. "Look at the other advantages of studying in India; you will be part of fastest growing major global economy. Studying for short term or long term in India would provide students with an opportunity to understand the government systems, culture, and markets closely," he said.
