Authentic sources[edit]

The most authentic list is at this link.

If anyone wants to add new institutes, they are requested to provide authetic source justifying the addition. New IITs automatically come into this list as they are established under the same act(The Institutes of Technology Act, 1961), which established old IITS. The act clearly states that the institutes established under it are "institutes of national importance", see THE INSTITUTES OF TECHNOLOGY ACT,1961. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anilmuthineni (talkcontribs) 17 May 2010

IIITs status[edit]

As people keep adding IIITs to the list, I added two sources with the current status. Except Indian Institute of Information Technology Design and Manufacturing, Kancheepuram which was added with a specific act, please don't add any of the rest until the Act is approved. --Muhandes (talk) 17:32, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Updated list[edit]

The DHE has updated the list and not only does it not include any of the new institutes added recently, it does not include it now does not include Indian Statistical Institute and National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research. I am going to leave these two in the list and add sources for them specifically, but I really wonder what is going on with this. --Muhandes (talk) 18:48, 13 March 2012 (UTC)


i'm not knowledgable about these, but there are many schools (law and management, at least) in the tabulated list, but not in the enumerated categories above. if the first is supposed to be some representative selection, it should be shorter (given the existence of the tabular list) and clearly marked as a list of a few examples. if it's supposed to be complete, all the ones in the tab should be added to some category above, as appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by David Farris (talkcontribs) 14:10, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

This is more a problem of drive by addition. I'm going to spend some time cleaning this up, we don't need multiple lists, one sortable table is enough. The list itself is unlikely to change regularly. —SpacemanSpiff 04:21, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
