0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Govt of Indi through Ministry of HRD has declared so far 92 institutes as Institutions of National Importance (INIs) as on of 23 April 2015. A list of 74 INIs is displayed at the webpage http://mhrd.gov.in/institutions-national-importance and in Wikipedia full list of 92 INIs is declared. Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISERs), All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMSs), Schools of Planning & Architecture (SPAs), National Institutes of Pharmaceutical, Educational and Research (NIPERs) are declared as INIs.Indian Statistical Institute, Jawaharlal Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education & Research, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research, National Institute of Design  and four old Indian Institutes of Information Technology at Allahabad, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Kanchipuram are also declared as INIs. The less well known   Dakshina Bharat Hindi Prachar Sabha, Kalakshetra Foundation, Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development and Rani Lakshmi Bai Central Agricultural University have also been conferred the status of INIs. 16 new Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) have been set up between 2013 to 2016 and four more are expected to be set up soon. However these newly set up IIITs have not been confered the status of Institutions of National Importance so far. Due to lack of INIs status, these new IIITs are seriously neglected in funding and other resources on priority basis by the HRD MInistry. Students of these new IIITs are also not  able to get education loan easily and at reduced rate of interest from SBI and other public sector banks like students of other INIs. Central Government through Ministry of HRD should declare new IIITs  as Insitutions of National Importance so that the vision of DIGITAL INDIA, REMOVAL OF CORRUPTION THROUGH SPREAD OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY of Honourable Prime Minister of India is realised at musch fater pace.
