Thank you Indian engineers – for not being innovative, creative and being happy with your regular, damned 10-5 jobs. Had you we been all of what I’ve said, we’d have been way ahead of the world. We could have made the world rely on us for everything. I stumbled upon the .edu domain name policy. It clearly states that only the institutions based in USA can apply for the .edu domain.
As specified by the Department of Commerce, only postsecondary “US institutions” that are institutionally accredited by one of the agencies on the U.S. Department of Education’s list of Nationally Recognized Accrediting Agencies may apply for new names in the .edu domain. We thus require applicants to be located within the United States (including US territories and possessions); or to be licensed, chartered, or incorporated within the United States (including US territories and possessions); or to be otherwise officially recognized by a US state or federal government agency (including US territories and possessions).

Note that the .edu domains registered prior to year 2001 can be continued. So you’ll still see few of the Indian (or non American) institutes, colleges have the .edu domains.
