All higher education institutes (HEIs) now have to collate the data related to foreign students enrolled in their courses. The Ministry of Education (MoE) has asked the institutes to create a database studying in HEIs. The institutes will also have to submit the details of foreign alumni.

In an official notice, the University Grants Commission (UGC), said, “Ministry of Education has directed that a database of the information with regard to all international students studying in higher educational institutions (HEIs) in India including the details of alumni needs to be created urgently.”
