India introduced the IND-SAT (Indian Scholarship Assessment Test) exam under the ‘Study in India' programme. This was announced during the annual budget session on February 1 by the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.
In this regard, the government said that the IND-SAT exam will enroll Asian and African students — including Bangladesh, Bhutan, Kenya, Mauritius and Nepal — in Indian universities. This will mirror the SAT and GMAT exams of the US which are used to enrol foreign students.
The programme announced last year, focussed on bringing foreign students to study in India’s higher education institutions. The scores of the exam will facilitate scholarships for students based on merit.
