Rajesh Tope, Minister of higher and technical education revealed that a Harvard styled institution will be set up by Mukesh Ambani in Maharashtra
An institution built along the lines of Harvard University might be a possibility for Maharashtra. Rajesh Tope, Minister of higher and technical education revealed that the Harvard replica will be set up by Mukesh Ambani, at the second convocation event of the Institute of Chemical Technology, Matunga. The minister was the guest of honour and Ambani was the chief guest.
He stated that Mukesh Ambani is ready with the infrastructure for 22 departments and the state would allot land for the expansion of ICT to set up the satellite campus. However the future of the university is dependent on whether the Private Universities Bill (Self-Finance Universities' Bill) is passed.
Minister Rajesh Tope stated to the media that the bill has been presented in the assembly. He is optimistic that the bill will be passed but says issues about reservation are standing in its way.
