Abstract: This paper aims to study the productivity of modern Indian telescopes that were installed after India attained independence from colonial rule. (The study also includes one telescope built under colonial rule that is still in operation today.) Productivity is measured by the number of papers published from the fourteen telescopes included in the study. Researchers make use of the astronomical data generated by these telescopes and write research papers, which are then used by other researchers and cited in subsequent papers. This study quantifies the impact that the telescopes have on scholarship and analyzes the data using scientometric indicators.
