Govt-appointed panel recommends 19 more educational institutions Institute of Eminence status. HRD ministry to take final call early next week.

Nineteen educational institutions, including one backed by former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan, are in the running for the Institute of Eminence (IoE) tag. The strange fact about this list is that no IIT is in this list.

The institutions — which include seven public and 12 private colleges — have been recommended for the eminence status by an empowered committee headed by former chief election commissioner N. Gopalaswami. The panel submitted the second list to the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry.

The second list includes prominent institutes such as Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and Panjab University (PU) but does not include a single IIT. It also includes private players such as Ashoka University and O.P Jindal University.

Modi government’s efforts came into criticism when the government awarded the coveted tag to Reliance Foundation’s Jio Institute, which is yet to be built.

Jio Institute was awarded the eminence status along with IIT-Bombay, IIT-Delhi, IISc Bangalore, and private players BITS Pilani and Manipal University.

The government had then overlooked the claims of institutions such as IIT Madras, IIT Kharagpur, Delhi University, Jadavpur University and Anna University.

These universities, however, are now back in the running for the IOE tag. In all, 30 institutions, including 11 that missed out from the first list, will be considered for the coveted IoE tag.
