The Government of India, through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), has created two Science Institutes, patterned after the Indian Institute of Science ( IISc ), Bangalore, in terms of high quality research in basic sciences, but with additional education program in the form of an integrated five year Masters curriculum following class XII of our school system ( or its equivalent ).
