Telangana keen on having private varsities
The Times of India, November 27, 2105
Hyderabad: The government of Telangana is planning to introduce a Private Institutions Bill, enabling private players to establish private universities in the state.
Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was keen on having private universities which may aid lakhs of students in the state with better education and employment. “I had asked the deputy chief minister Kadiyam Srihari on why we shouldn’t pass private institutions bill which will help lakhs of students across the state,” KCR said at the inaugural function of the Rockwell International School on Thursday.
He further urged Mahesh Bigala, the director of the International Institute of Business and Information Technology (IIBIT) (ITP Education Group) that has invested in Rockwell School, to establish a private university in Telangana. “Because Mahesh Bigala has established IIBIT in association with Federation University in Australia, which has 10,000 graduates so far, the same can be done in Telangana,” said Rao.
The IIBIT (ITP Education Group) in partnership with Federation University in Australia made an institutional investment in Rockwell International School. “IIBIT made this investment with a view to set up a foreign university at an appropriate time in future in India,” said Mahesh Bigala, director of IIBIT (ITP Education Group). Addressing the gathering, education minister Kadiyam Srihari, said that the chief minister has a vision to make the vision of free education at par with the private institutions.
The new campus of Rockwell International School at Kokapet, affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education and Cambridge, has a capacity of accommodating 1,500 students. While the academics at the new campus will begin from next year, the admissions have commenced. “Schools are no more training grounds for future. Education is not all about preparing to face the future,” said Subash Boda, CMD Rockwell International School.
