chandigarh Updated: Jul 18, 2012 21:20 IST

The Punjab government will set up "education cities" at Mullanpur, Ludhiana, Amritsar and Bathinda to provide "international quality" education in the state, the decision was taken in a meeting chaired by deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, an official said on Wednesday.

Badal said these education cities would attract international universities to set up their campuses. He added that these education cities would be developed on Oxford's pattern.
Badal also wanted that the process of setting up of international trade centres at Mohali and Amritsar be put on the fast track.
