Government to establish 14 New IIIT's!

In what can be called as a big boost to the education sector, the Union government has reportedly approved the establishment of around 14 new Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIIT) across the country and this information was revealed in Parliament recently. The need for high quality educational institutions has been on the rise in the last few years.

The Minister of state for human resource development Shashi Tharoor has reportedly said in a written reply in the Lok Sabha that under the approved scheme of establishing 20 IIITs on an entirely not-for-profit public-private partnership, the central government has accorded its approval for starting them in 14 states.

The new IIITs are expected to come up in Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Gujarat, Haryana, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal and Tripura. Already, few of the states among them have got an IIIT but the demand for seats has grown significantly among the student community.

According to this scheme, around 50 to 100 acres of land will be provided free of cost by the concerned state governments for starting these IIITs in what is being seen as a concerted push by the government to take up its higher education policy and development forward in an era where job creation for engineers is expected to become a challenge!
