The INSA fellowship has in its fold the distinguished men of science and other luminaries, who have
rendered conspicuous service towards the advancement of science and technology. Election to the Fellowship
of the Academy has thus come to signify a unique honor and recognition, which is greatly coveted by
scientists in India. To that extent, his Compendium may be regarded as an authentic reference guide on India's
distinguished Men of Science. The first Compendium of Fellows was brought out on the occasion of its Golden
Jubilee (1984), the second during the Diamond Jubilee (1994). Since then as many as 364 new Fellows have
been elected to the Academy. Therefore, the Academy decided to bring out the third Compendium of the
Professor Alok Bhattacharya, FNA and Professor R Ramaswamy, FNA have very meticulously edited
the profiles of all the living Fellows to bring them into a uniform style. In preparing these manuscripts all the
Fellows were contacted. I am thankful to the entire Fellowship for their wholehearted support to this project.
However, information about some of them who could not respond was prepared from the available sources.
The profiles of the deceased Fellows were prepared in house. In preparing the write-ups on deceased Fellows,
INSA publication: Biographical Memoirs were of great help.
I wish to place on record my thanks to Professors Alok Bhattacharya, FN A, and Professor R Ramaswamy,
FNA, Dr Alok Moitra, OSD; Mr. PK Mishra, Assistant; Ms Vandana Gajare, Assistant; Mr. Amit Jain,
Assistant and Ms Nidhi Gupta, Project Assistant of the Academy for their painstaking, dedicated efforts to
put together this Compendium within a short time. The Editors and his team of officers have made every effort
to collect adequate information about all the elected Fellows.
I have great pleasure to present this third Compendium of the Fellows of our Academy.
