3 more ISERs in the coming years -- C.N.R.Rao, SAC-PM chair

Complete News is in the link.

The point to make here is that as per Prof Rao: "Foundation for two Institutes for Science Education and Research (ISER) in Pune and Kolkata at a cost of Rs. 500 crores each will be laid in 2006, and three more ISERs will be started in the north, south and central parts of the country in the coming years."



Chitta's comments:

We should not rest until an NIS/IISER/equivalent is established in Bhubaneswar. Bhubaneswar is not in the proposed region of south, north and central. Even if Bhubaneswar is mentioned specifically as a possible location in some unnamed future we should not make the same mistake of waiting patiently again. Who knows what the political situation then will be.

The facts remains: 4 NISs were decided in Bhubaneswar, Pune, Chennai and Allahbad. Among those 4 Bhubaneswar is the only one in a state with no IIT/IIM/IISc/CentralU etc. So Bhubaneswar should be one of the first locations where are NIS/IISER/equivalent is established. Until that happens we should not let up our campaign.
