The National Academy of Sciences of India (originally known as “The Academy of Sciences of the United Provinces of Agra and Oudh”) was established in 1930 with the goals of providing a national forum for the publication of research work conducted by Indian scientists and providing opportunities for exchange of ideas among them.
