The portal has all relevant information available for students including names and details of all State and Central Universities of India and Institutes and Colleges affiliated with them, information like availability of hostels, availability of various academic courses, guidelines, eligibility criteria etc. In order to streamline the grievances redressal mechanism for ICCR sponsored foreign students, a Helpline email id: studenthelpline.iccr@gov.in has been created to address the grievances of such students.
