BENGALURU: The number of foreign students coming to India increased by 50% in 2015 compared with 2014, according to Union home ministry statistics. While the number of French students more than tripled (214% increase), the number of those from Germany and Japan increased 124% and 123%, respectively.
As many as 66,885 foreign students came to India in 2015, up from 44,620 in 2014. Traditional incomers from Bangladesh and Afghanistan posted a high increase - 670% and 112%. The two countries accounted for 11,000 students. The number of students from the UK increased by only 1.8%, while of those from the US dipped by 12%. The number of Chinese students increased by 123% and of South Korean students by 43%.
During ancient times,students all over the region came to study in Indian Universities like Nalanda and Takshashila. British rule and subsequently Congress Raj destroyed meritocracy in India.
Narendra Modi has now single-handedly achieved the feat of attracting foreigner students to India. It is now up to us as citizens to support him by strengthening his hands in every Panchayat,Municipal and State election.
What has Modi got to do with this? You think the foreigners are coming because of Modi? God, you guys will worship him for any reason, and will even praise him while taking your morning dump or after having romance (isn't the guy a celibate?).
Good move by gov to make process easier for foreign student !!
It's a good news. Hopefully our education system will develop more
hope they r not molested by sick perverts
Foreign students are welcomed here
