Institutions of Eminence scheme

The Ministry of Education launched the Institutions of Eminence Scheme on 2018, under which 20 institutions (10 private and 10 public) were selected to enjoy complete academic and administrative autonomy. Those institutions with IoE tags will be allowed to start a maximum of three off-campus centres in five years, but not more than one in an academic year. For this, they would require approval from three central ministries – education, home and external affairs.
