The Union Cabinet on 22 September 2015 approved the signing of Joint Declaration of Intent (JDI) between India and Germany. It was approved with minor amendments in the earlier MoU for facilitating implementation of the programme Indo-German Strategic Partnerships in Higher Education.

The amendments in the earlier MoU include
• The term ‘Strategic’ will be removed from the title of the programme to make it Indo-German Partnership in Higher Education and
• The funding period for the programme will be changed from 2015-19 to 2016-20, that is, from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2020.

The strengthened education relationship through this Joint Declaration of Intent will enable the higher education institutions in both the countries to benefit mutually to enhance innovative partnerships in the field of education, research and skill development.

It will be beneficial for faculty development and to foster advanced research in the identified priority areas of challenges for India.
