Institute of National Importance (INI) status for the National Law Universities

This petition had 1,074 supporters

An Institute of National Importance is defined as an institute ‘which serves as a pivotal player in developing highly skilled personnel within the specified region of the country/state’. While there exists no guideline for the same, the NLUs will probably squarely fall within the criteria of contributing highly skilled personnel to the legal profession, judiciary, bureaucracy, policy think tanks, academia and various other avenues.

Having read about the intent and goals of the student bodies of some of the premier national law institutions of our country here and being a CLAT aspirant myself..


.. I think it's only fair that the NLU s too should be given their fair chance at good budget allocations to keep improving and maintaining the highest standards of law education in the country.Institutes of National Importance (INI)”,  receive considerable funding via the Ministry of Human Resource Development’s budget, which provides annual Rs 7800 crore funding to IITs, Rs 3500 crore funding to NITs, Rs 1000 crore funding to IIMs, Rs 650 crores to IISERs. Think of all the good that it could do to the NLU s which depend on meagre UGC grants and fluctuating state allocations.



Full support to the movement requested.
