The Practice

Our education practice advises leading promoter groups, top-tier Indian and international educational institutions, private equity firms, investors, financial institutions, not-for-profit organisations and charitable foundations on a wide range of advisory and transactional work in the Indian education sector.


We advise on the establishment of twinning arrangements and collaborations with foreign universities and regulatory matters with respect to UGC, AICTE and other regulatory authorities. We also advise on commercially viable strategies for the entry of foreign investors in the sector, private equity investments in education service companies, corporate restructurings to maximise revenue generation and structuring entry options for foreign universities and not-for-profit entities.

The Khaitan Advantage

Our deep sectoral (including higher education, K-12 and informal education) and regulatory experience combined with our team’s vast experience in mergers and acquisitions as well as tax and regulatory matters, enables us to anticipate and respond to various education-related matters. We can offer creative solutions or structures, customised to the requirements of our clients.

“The advice received from Khaitan is precise, practical and technically sound.”
