Yoga Guru Ramdev has said he plans to start a world class university in India in the next five years to educate around one lakh students in different streams, mentioning that 1,500 acre of land has already been acquired for it.
The standard of education would be at par with ivy leagues, Ramdev said during his address on ‘Yoga and Inner Peace’ at a sold out event in Houston on August 23.
He said that he has planned to build a world class university in India near New Delhi like the University of Houston.
The cost of the project would be around Rs 25,000 crore, he added.
This university will be as reputed as the ancient higher-learning institutions of Nalanda and Takshila, so that students from all around the world would opt for India for higher education.
He said that the proposed university will focus on three major areas — health, business and education.
