- The Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs) are a group of premier science education and research institutes in India. These institutions have been declared by an Act of Parliament as Institutes of National Importance,and are intended to be the leading institutes in the country in the field of basic sciences. The institutes were created by the Government of India, through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), under The National Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Bill, 2010 (an amendment of the National Institutes of Technology Act, 2007), which was passed by the Rajya Sabha on 30 April 2012.Seven IISERs have been established across the country, namely IISER Kolkata in West Bengal, IISER Pune in Maharashtra, IISER Mohali in Punjab, IISER Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, IISER Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala, IISER Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh and IISER Berhampur in Odisha. Together with the IISER at Berhampur, Odisha that commenced in 2016, another IISER in Nagaland was also announced in the 2015 Budget.The financial outlay for each IISER is around 5 billion (US$70 million) for the first five years. IISERs are envisioned to be the IITs of Basics Sciences.
- IISER Nagaland. A new IISER in Nagaland was announced in the 2015-16 budget. But it seems the Nagaland government would prefer a different institute (SPA – School of Planning and Architecture) instead of an IISER.. Until Nagaland Assembly Elections, 2018, state government has not shown any interest in opening the institute. There is also no public demand for the institute in Nagaland. It is very likely that the institute may never come up in Nagaland due to lack of interest among stakeholders.
- Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune has started functioning from the National Chemical Laboratory Pune campus. Its campus has mostly been developed. The labs, lecture hall complexes, main buildings, and the hostels have been set up in the permanent campus.
- As of October 2018, IISERs admit 1325 students in total each year for their dual degree BS-MS Program. For each channel of admission below, additional cut-off criteria of respective IISERs are applicable. Candidates satisfying any of the following criteria are eligible for applying:
- KVPY channel: Candidates having a valid KVPY fellowship.
- JEE (Advanced) channel: Candidates in General category securing a rank within 10000 in the Common Rank List (CRL) of the JEE Advanced are eligible to apply. For candidates belonging to reserved category (OBC Non-Creamy Layer, SC, ST, Persons with Disability (PD)), their category rank should be within 10000.
- State and Central Boards Channel (SCB): Candidates who have passed (10+2) level with science stream with marks equal to or above the cut off percentage in their respective boards as given in the table below are eligible to apply for the IISER Aptitude Test (IAT). For the candidates belonging to the Non-Creamy Layer of the Other Backward Classes (OBCNC) and Persons with Disability (PD) categories, there is a 5% relaxation. The cut-off percentage for the Scheduled Castes (SC), the Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Kashmiri Migrants (KM) candidates is 55% in (10+2) level for all boards. It is mandatory for the candidates applying through SCB channel to appear in the IAT. On the basis of the cut-off marks of IAT for each IISER (which are kept strictly confidential), candidates are allotted IISERs by the Joint Admissions Committee (JAC) through a common admissions portal.
