 breaking news


Union Cabinet has approved the establishment of five Indian Information Technology Institutes (IIITs) throughout India including one in Agartala.

These IIITs will be installed in Surat, Bhopal, Bhagalpur, Agartala, and Raichur under the Public-Private Partnership mode.

On Wednesday, the Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, approved the implementation of the Indian Institutes of Information Technology Laws (Amendment) Bill 2020, ex-post-facto to 21 Directors ' offices, one in 20 IIITs (PPP) and one in IIITDM Kurnool (IIIT-CFTI) and ex-post-facto to 21 Registrars ' posts, one in 20 IITs (PPP) and one in IIITDM Kurnool (IIT-CFTI)

The Act, along with the current 15 Indian Institutes of Information Technology in Public-Private Partnership mode, would designate the 5 IIITs-PPP as' Institutions of National Importance' with authority to grant degrees.

Officials said this would require them to use the B.Tech or Master of Technology (M.Tech) or Ph.D. nomenclature as provided by a University or National Importance Institution. This will also allow the Institutes to attract enough students in the field of information technology needed to build a strong country research base.

IIITs are intended to promote information technology research and higher education.

Under the scheme of setting up of 20 new IITs in Public-Private Partnership (IIIT PPP) mode as approved by the Union Cabinet in 2010, 15 IIITs are already covered by the IIIT (PPP) Act, 2017, while remaining 5 IIITs are to be included under the Schedule of the Act.
