Webinar │Concessions provided to foreign universities to operate in India

With new concessions for foreign universities operating in India, take a look to learn about the International Financial Services Centres (IFSC) and the opportunities for Australian universities entering the Indian market.

Hear from Dipesh Shah, Executive Director, International Financial Services Centres Authority (IFSCA), Sandip Shah, Head of the IFSC Department, Atul Puri, Managing Partner & Co-founder, SW India and Saurrav Sood, Practice Leader, SW India as they discuss the IFSC regulations and highlight the advantages of GIFT City and what it can offer in terms of its world class infrastructure to Australian universities.

In a recent policy update, the Government of India issued regulations enabling Foreign Educational Institutions to establish an International Branch Campus (IBC) or Offshore Education Centre (OEC) in International Financial Services Centres (IFSC) in the Gujarat International Finance Tec-City (GIFT City) in India.

This much anticipated legislation is welcome news for Australian universities looking to establish a location for teaching, research and industry engagement in India.  This provides an opportunity to enter the Indian market in a more tax effective and less heavily regulated environment.
