India's Harvard?

It will be a business-sponsored nonprofit:
New Delhi, Feb 16 : Metal and mining giant Vedanta Resources today announced plans to set up a multi-disciplinary university in India, with an initial endowment of one billion dollars, which is likely to start by 2008.

The four-billion-dollar group chairman Anil Agarwal, who apprised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of the project yesterday, said the company planned to develop the university at par with leading global institutes like Harvard, Stanford and Oxford.
