Govt to formulate policy to check `study abroad agents`
Patiala: Government is considering
formulating a policy to check the mushrooming growth of
educational agents, who lure students to study abroad without
proper verification of colleges.
There is no check on the `study-abroad educational
agents` in the country and the government will soon come out
with a policy on this, Union Minister of State for External
Affairs Preneet Kaur has said.
The statement came in the backdrop of sudden closure of a
number of private colleges in Australia which left many Indian
students in lurch.
"Around 2,000 agents have been working in Punjab and they
have taken e-visa facility from colleges in Australia and
other countries," she told reporters here last night.
The minister also expressed concern about the closure of
about ten colleges in Australia creating trouble for students,
many of them being from Punjab.
Four more private colleges in Australia were closed down
