New Delhi: The renowned University of Chicago has no plans of setting up a full-fledged campus here despite the government's eagerness to woo the best varsities by enacting enabling legislation.

President of the celebrated American university, Robert J Zimmer, however, praised the intellectual capacity here and said students from his university were eager to visit India on study trips notwithstanding the alleged harassment faced by a Chicago university student here last year.

"We would best like to be known as a university which operates from Chicago. We have no plans of setting up campuses anywhere else," Zimmer, who was here in connection with the inauguration of an academic centre in Delhi, told reporters.

The above statement comes amidst indications that the government might give a push to the Foreign Education Provider's Bill in the winter session of Parliament to attract universities from across the world.
