New Delhi, Sep 15 (ANI): The Public Private Partnership (PPP) model is being looked at for some of the Innovation Universities that are to be set up by the Government (the 11th Five Year Plan proposes the establishment of 14 such universities aimed at world class standards).

The Government is already in the process of involving a PPP model in school education, said Union Minister for Human Resource Development Kapil Sibal while meeting with Minister for Trade, Investment and Business of the United Kingdom, Lord Mervyn Davies.

Lord Mervyn said that his government is keen for collaboration and cooperation with India in the education sector.

He said that in the two areas of teacher training and certification, the U.K. could offer its expertise through collaboration.

The UK minister emphasized that the mood for India in the U.K. is very positive and he expressed the hope that India would open up its university sector for British universities soon.

Sibal pointed out that the education sector could see massive growth in the coming years to cater to the rising demand both in India and abroad.

He underlined that while framing regulations; the focus will be to keep out fly by night operators from the education sector. (ANI)
