Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with France for boosting education

An Agreement to facilitate Mutual Recognition of Academic Qualifications between the Government of the Republic of India and the Government of the French Republic has been signed during the recent visit of French dignitaries to India, according to an official release. 

Signing of MoU with a foreign country is not a unilateral course of action and verily depends on various factors viz.  education system prevailing in that country, response of the foreign country, bilateral relations, mutual benefit to be accrued by signing such kind of MOUs, etc. In some cases it can materialize soon whereas in other cases it may not materialize or take time. In other words, agreement with a country evolves during the course of negotiations and as such it cannot be predicted/planned in advance. 

This information was given by the Minister of State (HRD), Dr. Satya Pal Singh today in a written reply to a Rajya Sabha question.

When the MoU was signed, the Union Minister of Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar described it as ‘historic ‘for the first time adding, “a government to government MoU (memorandum of understanding) has been signed to mutually recognize academic qualifications. It will help the student community.” He went on to express a wish that more and more countries should come forward “for mutual recognition of academic qualifications so that the mobility of students and professionals improves.”
