The Human Resource Development Ministry has awarded Institute of Eminence status to 5 more public Institutions, said an official statement. Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank recently said that “Orders have been issued to five public higher education institutes declaring them as IoEs“.
This development comes on the recommendations from University Grants Commission (UGC) and an Empowered Expert Committee (EEC) appointed by the Government under the chairmanship of N Gopalaswami to choose 10 public and 10 private IoEs. UGC sent their recommendations last month to the Ministry.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) issued orders to five higher education institutes – IIT Madras, IIT Kharagpur, Delhi University, Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and the University of Hyderabad conveying their declaration as Institutions of Eminence status (IoE).
