Jamia Hamdard (JH) was declared as a deemed-to-be University by the Govt. of India in 1989 on the recommendation of University Grants Commission (UGC) under the UGC Act 1956 in recognition of the services provided by erstwhile educational institutes established by the Hamdard National Foundation (HNF). These institutes, built over a period of time, included the Hamdard College of Pharmacy, Hamdard Tibbi College, Rufaida College of Nursing, the Institute of History of Medicine & Medical Research, and Indian Institute of Islamic Studies. Jamia Hamdard was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister of India, Shri Rajiv Gandhi on August 1, 1989, who in his inspiring inaugural address applauded the efforts of Hakeem Abdul Hameed sb, the Founder, for setting up a number of institutions of learning which were finally emerged in the form of a “Deemed to be University” namely Jamia Hamdard. In the words of Shri Rajiv Gandhi, “This will enable minority to go forward and help India to march forward”. Spread over a sprawling green campus of about 100 acres, located on a prime piece of land in South Delhi, JH has nine Schools including a medical college, two hospitals – a 750 bedded modern medicine hospital and another 150 bedded Unani medicine hospital – on its campus. It has a huge library building, archive centre, separate hostels for girls and boys, gymnasium, a large playground, residential quarters for the staff, and also an off-campus in Kannur, Kerala. The University has been maintaining a steady progress in all facets in its existence of almost 30 years and is both nationally and internationally recognized for the quality of teaching and research. The overall progress in this period has been excellent in terms of infrastructure and maintaining the standards which is evident from the placement records, high quality of research, publications and patents. Jamia Hamdard is among top 25 universities of India and ranked 2nd in the field of Pharmaceutical sciences and ranked 11th in Medical Education by the Govt. of India (NIRF-2018 ranking). JH is perhaps the only privately funded University to get funding under the DST's PURSE (Promotion for University Research in Science and Engineering) Grant. Jamia Hamdard was placed at 2nd rank in i10 values and 5th in i100 values as per SCOPUS dataset of all the Institutes that awarded the DST PURSE grant. The total number of publications of Jamia Hamdard is 4386 as of today. The h-index of Jamia Hamdard is 95 and i100 is 87. Almost 36% of all our publications have been cited at least 10 times according SCOPUS database. JH has a close relationship with DRDO and joint research between Jamia Hamdard and INMAS-DRDO has led to development of pharmaceutical products which are being used by defense forces. The University is committed to excellence in tertiary education.
