According to sources, MEA has responded positively, and the norms for the appointment of international faculty in IITs would be made easier. At the same time, the ministry has also proposed to make clearance norms easier for others teaching in India.

The ministry has also suggested to relax work visa regime by bringing down the threshold annual salary to Rs. 9.1 lakh per annum from the current limit Rs. 16.7 lakhs.
