The Indian School of Mines (ISM) is a deemed university under the Government of India. ISM is located in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Established by the British India Government on the lines of the Royal School of Mines, London in 1926 as an institution to impart mining education, it has now grown into a multi-departmental technical university. IAdmission for its undergraduate degrees is based on the performance in the JEE advanced exam.

The Government of Jharkhand passed a resolution in September 2011, recommending to the Govt of India to convert ISM to IIT. The Planning Commission, on a reference to it from the Union Cabinet on this issue, favoured this conversion during the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017). ISM Dhanbad with the approval of its Finance Committee, Executive Board and General Council has forwarded the proposal for its conversion into an IIT.

In a written reply to the Rajya Sabha on December 14, 2012, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor said, "The Planning Commission has recommended that ISM Dhanbad may be converted into an IIT while ensuring that its core competency in mining and geology would be central to the institution and would not be diluted."

The approval on 'Conversion of ISM Dhanbad into an IIT' is an agenda item for the meeting of the council of the IITs to be held on January 7, 2013. It may be noted that for this, a Bill will have to be introduced in Parliament by the Union HRD Minister.
