Because it is a lucrative market with huge earning potential.

And how would it result in brain drain?
Its a good idea . It ll attract Overseas indians , NRI . And 100s of thousands are going to foreign countries for education anyway . We rescued 20,000 from Ukraine . IITs ll earn some money . Also collaboration between foreign universities ll increase . Global standard practices , talents ll be brought to indian iits and ecosystem .

Why expand IITs to overseas? Keep them within the country and keep the hard earned money inside the country instead of exporting our brain talent overseas. Stupid proposal.
if and when Indian industry develops own technology standards and I.P, educational institutions are key to spread their reach.

just like Indian educational institutions blindly try to ape U.S curriculum, these days.

in china's case too, if we go back and look at how china's BRI was explained in washington DC, it was pitched as a challenge to western technology standards and that it needs to be challenged, during trump presidency.

Fine. All i know is that India loses about $40-$60 billion dollars worth of education each year when Indian students go abroad for their studies. You are talking about missing out $40-60 billion dollars of cold hard earned cash that could have been injected into Indian universities for top tier R&D that would allow India to compete on an international level with US & China & Europe. India is missing out a huge opportunity here.

Domestic academic R&D is being addressed separately thru new National Education Policy.

Not opening overseas IIT doesn't solve this problem. Highly qualified people especially IITians mostly leave country for money abroad. So your analysis and argument is completely erroneous here.

Increasing global network of Indian educational institutions will buy India soft power, earn profit, integrate and collaboration with American, European and Japanese institutions and hence, "normalising" India's presence in global academic stature.
It will also earn more international students that may in future may opt to come to India itself for education.
IITs, AIIMs, IIMs and IISERs etc. have potential to compete with west as India's own ivy league in not so distant future. As far as emigrating Indians are concerned, the number will itself decline when India graduates into upper middle income economy and income gaps with western countries thin down in next 30 years. That's how it works for any country.

They wasted precious time which could’ve been utilised for Delhi-Ahmedabad corridor when ultimate goal is to connect Delhi with Mumbai.
There is no contract for Delhi-Ahmedabad. Mumbai-Ahmedabad is hopefully back on track and will be complete by 2026 (dream: 2024). Then we can talk of Delhi-Mumbai, Delhi-Benares, Benares-Patna, Patna-Guwahati, Patna-Howrah etc

rakesh takait and amrinder singh would have asked for bullet train ticket subsidy.

Trans Haryana expressway was stuck for more than a year just because one village didn't sell their land at one end of the expressway in haryana.

same with EDFC, there is a single line at starting point because of land acquisition issues in punjab.

Why dead. If Chenab bridge can be make then why not bullet train on this route. Only matters is what condition you required.
