Arjun Singh's statemsnts on NIS - indian express, outlookindia


Denying the charge that the Centre has shifted the National Institute of Science, proposed at Bhubaneswar, to Kolkata, Singh said that the University Grants Commission (UGC) had announced setting up four NIS. When the matter was examined by the Law department, which felt that UGC was only a funding body and cannot set up any institution, the issue became infructuous.

"It was incorrect to say that the institute proposed in Orissa has been shifted to Kolkata", he said adding that as part of govenment's proposal to strengthen science education, three National Institute of Sciences have been proposed at Kolkata, Pune and Chandigarh.
