Why this initiative?
As per the data published by the Reserve Bank of India, Indian parents have remitted US$ 10 billion = Rs. 75,000 crores, in the year 2019-20 for their children’s foreign education and living expenses. Click here
The Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India has stated that the ministry receives at least one complaint daily within or outside of India from aspiring students who have been cheated or misguided by student visa agents or consultants.
Ironically, this Rs. 75,000 crore student visa industry in India is served by agents and consultants who are not regulated or governed by a professional organization.
One way to address this is issue by creating awareness amongst Indian students and parents about studying abroad by means of printed materials, webinars, seminars and talk shows.
The founder of the Videsh Vidya Foundation, Mr. PrashantAjmera has published book, namely, “How to plan for your child’s foreign education in 2020ne? – Myth v/s Reality” . He regularly conducts webinars, seminars and writes blogs regarding studying abroad and the pitfalls that Indian students face during their endeavor of go abroad to study or settle.
VideshVidya Foundation, a CSR initiative of Ajmera Law Group, aims to create awareness across Indiain every educational institute, amongst students and parentsregarding the pros and cons of going abroad to study.
