Institutes of National Importance - As the name suggests, INIs are the Indian institutions that enjoy the special status of national importance. The Institute of National Importance (INI) is actually a status conferred to a public institution of Indian Higher Education by an Act of Parliament. An institution mandatorily needs to serve a significant role in the higher education within a state or region to be promoted as Institute of National Importance. These Indian Institutes of National Importance (INIs) also receive special recognition and funding from the Government of India (GoI).

These Indian Institutes of National Importance (INIs) can be sub-grouped under different specialised sectors namely-Agricultural Sciences, Design, Engineering, Food Processing, General, Information Technology, Language Studies, Management, Medicine, Pharmacy, Science & Engineering, Sciences, and Youth Affairs.

Not much surprising, most of these Institutes of National Importance are the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs).
