ABOUT US

The Indian Science News Association was established in 1935 with the initiative of Professor Meghnad Saha and Acharya P.C. Ray with an objective to disseminate science news as well as the reflection of the community of Indian scientists and thinkers for public understanding of science and culture together. To meet this goal the Association has been publishing a journal Science and Culture from its inception. In addition it organises seminars, symposia, memorial and endowment lectures etc. Since 1983 ISNA is conducting a course of 10-12 weeks duration on Science Communication and Media Practice for young aspirants who want to be science communicators.

The Association being autonomous depends on grants and donations: be it personal, governmental and from organisations. Although we now receive grants from the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India and Govt. of West Bengal; Dept. of Higher Education, Govt. of West Bengal; Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Govt. of India; Bose Institute; Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics; Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science; S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences; University of Calcutta; Jadavpur University; University of Burdwan; University of Kalyani etc., the fund received is not adequate and we pledge to all people and agencies to contribute. The Association is a non-profit making organization and the contribution is exempted from income tax u/s 80G of IT Act 1961.
