The Indian education ministry in Lok Sabha on Monday said that the Centre has requested the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi to explore the possibility of setting up a campus in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Union minister of state for education, Subhas Sarkar, said in a written response to a question by Congress MP MK Raghavan, that the Centre’s request came after a trade deal was signed between India and the UAE during a virtual summit, attended by the leaders of the two countries in February this year.
