As per Quora:
  1. The ICCR (Indian Council for Cultural Relations) scholarship is offered by the Indian government to foreign students to study in India. The scholarship covers tuition fees, accommodation, and living expenses. NITs (National Institutes of Technology) are among the top engineering institutions in India and are popular destinations for international students.
  2. However, it is difficult to determine which NITs accept the most ICCR students as the number of scholarships offered varies from year to year and depends on various factors such as the availability of seats, the popularity of the course, and the country of origin of the students.
  3. Nevertheless, based on past trends and statistics, some of the NITs that have accepted a significant number of ICCR students in the past include NIT Trichy, NIT Surathkal, NIT Warangal, NIT Calicut, and NIT Rourkela. However, it is important to note that the acceptance of ICCR students is subject to various factors and may vary from year to year.
