Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: Wealth can be created only through proper education and for that good institutions are essential, said the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, M.A.A. Fatmi. He said the present government was making efforts to put in place a hassle-free admission procedure for private engineering colleges.

Speaking at the anniversary of Hindustan College of Engineering, Padur, Mr. Fatmi said that irrespective of their location, minority institutions may be affiliated to any central university mentioned in the schedule according to an Act passed in the last session of Parliament.

S. Regupathy, Minister of State for Home Affairs, said India must keep its doors open to foreign students.

Visas

Foreigners who do not get visas to study in India may even approach the Home Ministry directly, he said.

According to K.C.G. Verghese, Chairman of the college, foreign students can provide valuable revenue for colleges, which can be used to build up facilities.
