The company, which entered India in 2007–08, has implemented its low-cost shared computing technology across government schools in seven states. After deploying 700,000 computing seats across state educational projects and private educational institutions, NComputing is looking for tenders in information and communication technology (ICT) from other state governments. Indian government is seeking public–private–partnership (PPP) to set up new Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) — prestigious engineering colleges in India. The government is seeking PPP to setup 20 new IITs, and is planning to invest approximately INR2,080.7 crore (US$382.9 million) on the project. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) — governing body for technical education in India — has approved private companies with more than INR100 crores (US$18.4 million) of turnover to set up technical institutions. The government therefore is seeking PPP from these companies to setup colleges, where central government, state government, and the company will contribute in the ration 50:35:15 respectively. Professors from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), US, have unveiled new business courses for Indian students and executives. The business education courses will be delivered through Academic Financial Trading Platform (AFTP), a MOOC started by CMU Professors Raj Chakrabarti (Systems Engineering) and Anisha Ghosh (Financial Economics). The quality and difficulty level of courses will be at par with those offered at CMU, and a completion will result in formal certification by AFTP. The courses will be offered in business subjects such as Investments, Macroeconomics, and Corporate Finance.© Indalytics Advisors l www.indalytics.com l gei@indalytics.com 6
