Abstract

Science administration in Victorian India mirrored colonial administrative policies in general - a top heavy structure as well as the existence of professional jealousies. Even after independence scientists took up administrative responsibilities, and committees became more important than classrooms. By this time, concepts of state science and state scientists had taken up a permanent place in the Indian system and psyche.
