Eminent educationists and top policymakers, including Niti Aayog chief executive officer Amitabh Kant, on Wednesday discussed ways to attract the best teaching talent and students from across the globe, as part of government’s “Study in India” initiative.

“How to attract the best of teachers who are of Indian origin but now teaching abroad. An idea that was floated during the discussions by the group headed by Kant was that a special package could be created to attract the best of teachers. Another aspect was granting of more autonomy in areas like hiring foreign faculty in institutions that are engaged in government’s Study in India programme,” said an official who participated in the discussions.

Around 70 top academicians took part in the three-day event organised by the HRD ministry.
