Top Institutes of India

India has made very rapid development in all the areas of human endeavour which together make it a power to reckon with globally. When a country grows, the aspirations of its people, particularly of the youth, know no bounds.

The enthusiasm and vigour grow extraordinarily and force these aspirations to materialise and turn into tangible realities to bring the society they live in forward.

After Independence, India ushered in an all new era of enlightenment and shook off the habit of looking downward. After the initial years of getting rid of old values, it tried to come up to the mark in every field and its effort started taking a definite shape.

It drew upon all the resources it already had and forged tools to construct a solid foundation on which it could grow. The Government of India first tried to identify the areas that needed improvement or reinforcement.

Thereafter, it looked for ways to innovate new ideas and layout a fool – proof structure which could withstand the jolts received due to shocks of adversities. It saw that everything needed a robust infrastructure to take shape and move in the right direction.

That is what led to the establishment of institutions like the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian School of Mines, Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) by the Government of India. But everybody knows that given India’s enormous size and vast population, these Government – funded institutes cannot cater to the rising needs of the country and are unable to satisfy and accommodate the millions of aspiring youth who always look forward to rising beyond their physical limitations.

That is why the private players have got the opportunity to establish innumerable institutions. All of these institutions are not able to provide the quality of education that can take the youth very high, but some are really worth mentioning.

They can be compared with the best in the field of management or engineering education with any institute of global reputation.
