By 2017, there were over 360,000 internationally mobile students from India.    However, India government “had no data of Indian students studying abroad,” according to Sushma Swaraj, the Minister of External Affairs (MEA) in India.

In early September of 2016, The MEA launched a website to track down its students all over the world.  “The ministry has launched an application form on its website for Indian students to register their contact details to make it easier for them to be reached in the event of an emergency.”   – The Pie News

In order to get the word out, Sushma Swaraj, the minister of external affairs, tweeted: “We have no data of Indian students studying abroad. We have, therefore, started a Students Registration Module on http://www.madad.gov.in.

I request all Indian students to register themselves on this module. This will be of immense help.”

As of today, only a handful of 8,512 Indian students registered with http://www.MADAD.gov.in.  We firmly advise Indian students to do so.   When you are studying abroad, you need more than one way to reach home or ask for help just in case any catastrophe happens.   Be Wise!   Register with MADAD today!
