In an endeavor to internationalize higher education, the portal was jointly unveiled on August 3, 2023, in New Delhi by Ministers of Education, Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Shri Dharmendra Pradhan and of External Affairs Dr. S. Jaishankar.

Speaking at the event, Shri K. Sanjay Murthy, Secretary, the Department of Higher Education, explained that the SII programme was started with the cooperation of the Ministries of Home Affairs and External Affairs in order to bring cohesive and coordinated actions for easing the process of regulatory actions for any student willing to study in India. He continued by saying that our institutions must set clear goals in order to achieve the goal of hosting at least 10 million students from throughout the world during the Amrit Kaal era.

Director of IIT Kanpur, Shri Abhay Karandikar, praised the leadership and efforts of the Ministries concerned, saying that this innovative project would successfully accomplish the goals of internationalizing higher education and gratifying students' and learners' ambitions.

Prof. Anil Sahasrabudhe, Chairman of NETF, addressed the crowd and stated that the students will represent India abroad and promote it as the premier destination for higher education research.

Nearly 500 people attended the event, including FRROs virtually as well as representatives from the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of External Affairs, the Ministry of Education, Indian missions abroad, and higher education institutes (HEIs) in India. India, which has the second-largest higher education system in the world, has produced some of the world's brilliant minds.

By providing affordable, top-notch education, the SII programme hopes to establish India as the preferred study location. With 100,000 places accessible in undergraduate, postgraduate, doctorate, and other short-term programmes and a choice of more than 2,600 courses, it offers access to more than 500 elite educational institutions. This programme will considerably improve the standard of higher education as a whole. 

The government of India's flagship programme, Study in India, symbolizes Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's goal of reviving India as a global hub of education. 

The website-portal acts as a single window system for registration, and visa approvals, thereby simplifying the entire journey, enabling students to choose their desired courses, receive institute offer letters, and successfully pursue their academic dreams in India.
