About the BookThe most authentic source of information on higher education in India — the Handbook of Universities, Deemed Universities, Colleges, Private Universities and Prominent Educational & Research Institutions provides much needed information on degree and diploma awarding universities and institutions of national importance that impart general, technical and professional education in India. Although another directory of similar nature is available in the market, the distinct feature of the present Handbook, that makes it one of its kind, is that it also includes entries and details of the private universities functioning across the country.
In this Handbook, the Universities have been listed in an alphabetical order. This facilitates easy location of their names. In addition to the brief history of these universities, the present Handbook provides the names of their Vice-Chancellor, Professors and Readers as well as their faculties and departments. It also acquaints the readers with the various courses of studies offered by each university.
It is hoped that the Handbook in its present form, will prove immensely helpful to the aspiring students in choosing the best educational institution for their career enhancement. In addition, it will also prove very useful for the publishers in mailing their publicity materials. Even the suppliers of equipment and services required by these educational institutions will find it highly valuable.About the Author/sAmeeta Gupta is a postgraduate in Economics and trained in Education counselling.
