The Institution of Engineers (India) has over one million members in 15 engineering disciplines in 114 centers or chapters in India and overseas; it is the world's largest multi-disciplinary engineering professional society in engineering and technology world. Such organization is derecognized by MHRD and AICTE is an insult to "make in India” concept of Prime Minister Narendar Modi. As per AICTE Act 1987 such organizations need to be automatically given due recognition under 10(1) (l) which states that "in respect of grant of charter to any professional body or institution in the field of technical education conferring powers rights and privileges on it for the promotion of such profession in its field including conduct of examination and awarding membership certificatesand it is matter of fact that The Institution of Engineers (India) is chartered organization since 1935 and its continuance is legal and it entitled that respect.
