The document mentions that the website will be clutter-free and well-structured, which will be appealing to a viewer. It will be hosted on the NIC platform on the official website of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.

In 2015, the Ministry had created a “Students Registration Module” to register the number of Indian students travelling abroad for studies. Students can register on the same site voluntarily and add details such as courses, location, duration of the course and name of the institution.
