The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), are a group of seven autonomous engineering and technology-oriented institutes of higher education established and declared as Institutes of National Importance by the Government of India. The IITs were created to train scientists and engineers, with the aim of developing a skilled workforce to support the economic and social development of India after independence in 1947. The students and alumni of IITs are colloquially referred to as IITians.

In order of establishment the seven IITs are located at Kharagpur, Mumbai, Chennai, Kanpur, Delhi, Guwahati, and Roorkee. The Government of India has announced plans to add nine more IITs, to be established in states that don't yet have an IIT. Some IITs were established with financial assistance and technical expertise from UNESCO, Germany, the United States, and Soviet Union. Each IIT is an autonomous university, linked to the others through a common IIT Council, which oversees their administration. They have a common admission process for undergraduate admissions, using the Joint Entrance Examination (popularly known as IIT-JEE) to select around 4,000 undergraduate candidates a year. Postgraduate Admissions are done on the basis of the GATE, JMET, JAM and CEED. About 15,500 undergraduate and 12,000 graduate students study in the seven IITs, in addition to research scholars.

IIT alumni have achieved success in a variety of professions.[1] The autonomy of the IITs has helped them to create specialized degrees in technology at the undergraduate level, and consequently to award the Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) degree, as opposed to the Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree awarded by most other Indian universities. The success of the IITs has led to the creation of similar institutes in other fields, such as the National Institutes of Technology, the Indian Institutes of Management and the Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIIT).
The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) are India's premier management institutes that also conduct research and provide consultancy services in the field of management to various sectors of the Indian economy. They were created by the Indian Government[1] with the aim of identifing the brightest intellectual talent[1] available in the student community of India and training it in the best management techniques available in the world, to ultimately create a pool of elite world class managers to manage and lead the various sections of the Indian economy. IIMs play a leadership role in the nation?s managerial manpower development and carry out research in emerging areas.[1] These Institutes are recognized as premier management institutions, comparable to the best in the world for teaching, research and interaction with industries. IIMs being "Role Models" have shared knowledge and skills with other institutions to improve their quality and standards in management education. IIMs have earned an international reputation for the quality of their alumni.

The IIMs are considered top business schools in India.[2] All the IIMs are completely autonomous institutes owned and financed by the Central Government of India. In order of establishment, the IIMs are located at Kolkata (Calcutta), Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Lucknow, Kozhikode (Calicut), Indore, and Shillong. They offer post-graduate courses in management (equivalent to an MBA), fellowship programmes in management (equivalent to PhD), executive MBA and industry based programmes. IIMs actively carry out research and consultancy for the industry, including the needs of non-corporate and under-managed sectors such as agriculture, rural development, public systems management, energy, health education, habitat, etc. The IIMs also offer various other management training programs as well as part-time MBA programmes for various organisations and individuals.
All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) (created 1956) is a medical college and hospital in India, and is an autonomous institution funded by India's Union Government. It is located in New Delhi.

Most of India's VIPs (Legislators, Ministers, Judges in particular) utilize AIIMS as their primary hospital, which contributes to ensuring the maintenance of high standards. Recently, medical professionals from various Asian, European and American countries have begun coming to AIIMS to train, as the level of exposure attained there is rare in most other institutions.

It is one of India's Institutes of National Importance, a distinguished category of premier institutions like the IITs, IIMs, NITs, Indian Statistical Institute, ICAR etc. AIIMS is also currently ranked as one of the top 10 medical colleges in the world according to the ongoing poll being conducted in the international online physician network.
National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are premier colleges of engineering and technology education in India. They were originally called Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs). In 2002, the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, decided to upgrade, in phases, all the original 17 Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) as National Institutes of Technology (NITs). There are currently 20 NITs, the latest being NIT, Agartala. The Government of India has introduced the National Institutes of Technology (NIT) Act 2007 to bring 20 such institutions within the ambit of the act and to provide them with complete autonomy in their functioning. The NITs are deliberately scattered throughout the country in line with the government norm of an NIT in every major state of India to promote regional development. The individual NITs, after the introduction of the NIT Act, have been functioning as autonomous technical universities and hence can draft their own curriculum and functioning policies.
