A grid is a collection of distributed computing resources available over a local or wide area network that appears to an end user or application as one large virtual image . Grid computing has serious social consequences and is go ing revolutionize the world of computing. Education is one domain that can be benefited the most from grid computing. Grid focus es on leveraging technologies and products from academic institutions around the world in the areas of E - learning, Design of fro nt - end portals, A utomation of Library and D igital asset Management to promote the sharing and collaboration in the use of technologies, developing Content, defining standards and building best - of - breed pedagogical practices is the new Upcoming trend. Inte rnationally, l ot s of work is going on in this emerging domain, and India also has joined the bandwagon to contribute to the development in this discipline, this paper aims to present the state - of - the - art of grid computing and attempts to survey India’s eff orts in developing this upcoming technology. By allowing anyone, anytime to easily access supercomputer level processing power and knowledge resources, grids are underpinning progress in Indian Education .
