India introduces new visa curbs for Chinese businessmen, academics
India suspects pernicious Chinese influence on Indian education and is planning to scale down Indian universities' tie-ups with Chinese institutions. It is also reviewing 54 MoUs signed between educational institutions of the two countries. Security checks for issue of visas will also be scaled up.

NEW DELHI, Aug 22: The Indian Government has slapped new conditions for the issue of visas to Chinese businessmen, academics and others. Now there will be a security clearance needed for visas for the Chinese.

The Government is also planning to scale down Indian universities' tie-ups with Chinese institutions. It is reviewing 54 memoranda of understanding (MoUs) signed between educational institutions of the two countries.

The new development follows security agencies' report that of late Chinese influence in Indian higher education and culture is growing.

The Government had recently launched a review of Indian educational institutions' links with Hanban, the official Chinese language training office, which runs Confucius Institutes in various countries. The Indian chapters of Confucius Institutes and Confucius classes in seven colleges and universities are under the scanner.

India had recently banned a large number of Chinese apps, including TikTok, and introduced new controls on Chinese investments.

The review of tie-ups and other steps follow the clashes at the Galwan Valley in Ladakh, leading to the death of 20 Indian soldiers.

MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava told reporters that the two sides had a "candid and in-depth" exchange of views on the existing situation on the Line of Actual Control(LAC) in recent days. Both countries have agreed to resolve outstanding issues in an "expeditious manner" and in accordance with the existing agreements and protocols, he said.
