The government is set to ease the regulatory norms to make it easier for foreign faculty to be appointed in the IITs.
According to official sources the HRD ministry has put forward a proposal to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to ensure the norms related to allowing foreign faculty are made easier.
“The HRD ministry has proposed that norms related to allowing qualified foreign faculty to teach in the IITs be eased. Both MEA and MHA have been positive in this regard during the consultations,” a source said.
It is also learnt that apart from the faculty coming from Prior Requirement Countries, the clearance norms for others teaching in India could be eased.
Sources said there is a move to relax work visa regime by bringing down the threshold annual salary to Rs 9.1 lakh per annum from the current limit of Rs 16.7 lakhs (USD 25,000).
