Approx 40 Students barred from boarding Air India Flight

Following the deportation of 14 Indian students admitted to the two apparently ‘blacklisted’ universities, Air India had on December 20, 2015 restricted 19 more students from boarding its flight to San Francisco citing a communication from the US Customs and Border Protection agency that the institutions were under ‘scrutiny’.

20 more Indian students admitted to the two controversial US universities- Silicon Valley and Northwestern Polytechnic have been barred from entering the country.

On Wednesday, December 23, sensing the seriousness of the issue and impact on the lives of so many outbound students, the Indian external affairs ministry took up the matter with the US authorities. It has, meanwhile, advised Indian students seeking admission in the two California- based universities to defer their departure pending a response from US authorities.
