Under the pact, Australia is offering zero-duty access to India for about 96.4% of exports (by value) from day one.
The India and Australia free trade agreement (FTA) came into force from 29 December 2022, which is likely to double the bilateral commerce to $45-50 billion in around five years. 

The India-Australia FTA, which was signed on April 2, would provide duty-free access to Indian exporters of over 6,000 broad sectors, including textiles, leather, furniture, jewellery, and machinery in the Australian market.

Labour-intensive sectors which would gain immensely include textiles and apparel, a few agricultural and fish products, leather, footwear, furniture, sports goods, jewellery, machinery, and electrical goods.

The Modi government has finally set the ball rolling for foreign universities to set up their campuses in India, a policy change that was mentioned in the new National Education Policy.

However, the draft regulations released by University Grants Commission (UGC) Thursday has also put a rider to the provision by stating that courses offered should be taught in a physical mode with no online classes allowed.

The UGC said that those universities among the top 500 in international rankings or have an excellent reputation in the field of research and academics will be eligible to open campus.
