List of autonomous higher education institutes in India

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The higher education system in India includes both private and public universities. Public universities are supported by the Government of India and the state governments, while private universities are mostly supported by various bodies and societies. Universities in India are recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC), which draws its power from the University Grants Commission Act, 1956.[1] In addition, 16 Professional Councils are established, controlling different aspects of accreditation and coordination.[2] The types of universities controlled by the UGC include Central universities,[3][4] State universities,[5] Deemed universities[6] and Private universities[7]

In addition to the above universities, other institutions are granted the permission to autonomously award degrees, and while not called "university" by name, act as such. They usually fall under the administrative control of the Department of Higher Education. In official documents they are called "autonomous bodies",[8] "university-level institutions",[9] or even simply "other central institutions".[10] Such institutes include:

Of specific interest are Institutes of National Importance (INIs). INIs are institutions which are set by an act of parliament. They receive special recognition and funding. The Department of Higher Education's list includes 39 institutions.[17] Some other institutes were also officially awarded the status.[18][19][20] INIs are marked below with a hash (#).
