On March 21, the government informed the Lok Sabha that Italian fashion school Istituto Marangoni and an unnamed French institute are interested in setting up campuses in India.

Without naming the institute, Sarkar wrote that the, “Ministry of External Affairs has informed that the French side has expressed interest in setting up a university campus for higher education courses in India.”
If such campuses are able to launch, it will boost the Indian fashion industry and give students more international opportunities.
“International campuses will give students from India and neighbouring countries exposure to quality education of global standards,” wrote Sarkar.
According to the National Education Policy, 2020, top international universities are able to operate in India. The government aims to put in place a legislative framework to facilitate and encourage this.
