Netizens Parody Jio Institute, Mock ‘Institution of Eminence’ Tag

Reliance Foundation’s Jio Institute is among the six colleges that have been granted the status of ‘Institution of Eminence’ by the HRD Ministry.

Though the HRD Ministry has attempted to defend the ‘provisional’ tag, netizens aren’t quite on board with the decision. The news, however, has served as fodder for some of the funniest memes and jokes on the internet.

Here, sample these!
