Indian Chairs Abroad

Since 70's, ICCR has been establishing Chairs of Indian Studies at various foreign universities/institutions. The objective is to generate interest in India amongst foreign students. Chair of Indian Studies also create greater understanding about India and Indian civilization amongst the global community of academic and thought leaders. The academics/scholars deputed to these Chairs not only teach courses on various aspects of Indian studies ranging from political science, economics to society & culture i.e. the specific disciplines for which they are sent, but also leave pronounced footprints all over the world and thus help in a better understanding of India as a whole. This is one of the most important academically influential programmes which is based on concluding MoUs with foreign universities to facilitate teaching about Indian studies, Hindi, Sanskrit and other Indian languages to faculties/students of those universities, creating thereby an exponential impact regarding awareness about India and its heritage.
