The HRD Ministry on Monday said it had no plan to open a satellite campus of the JNU, IIT or IIMs.
Union Minister of State for HRD Satyapal Singh informed this to the Lok Sabha in response to a written question.
"There is no plan for the opening of a satellite campus or branches by JNU, IITs or IIMs. As a policy, the government does not encourage the establishment of satellite campuses of such educational institutions," Singh said.
JNU Vice-Chancellor Jagadesh Kumar had in October announced that the university was planning to set up a satellite campus outside the national capital region (NCR) with an aim to make the university accessible to more students.
The university had also set up an expert committee to conduct a feasibility study.
