Indian School of Mines University, Dhanbad

With the Mines Bill becoming a law vide Indian Mines Act - VIII of 1901 the necessity for establishing a government college of Mining Engineering at a suitable place in India on the pattern of the Royal School of Mines, London was felt by the then Indian government. The Indian National Congress, the leading political party was quick to endorse this view of the government through its resolution taken at the 17th session held at Calcutta in December,1901. A committee consisting of mining experts under the Chairmanship of Macpherson, the Chief Secretary, government of Bihar and Orissa was formed to study the system of mining education in England. The report of this committee was the main basis for establishment of Indian School of Mines at Dhanbad. The Government of India, in 1920, decided that the proposed institution should be an All India Institution and finally announced the name as Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad. The Indian School of Mines was formally opened by his Excellency The Viceroy Lord Erwin on 9th. December, 1926
