Five IIITs will be granted the status of a national important institute

The IIIT (Amendment) Bill passed the Lok Sabha on Friday. Minister for Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank put the Bill on the House table. The amendment bill provided for the development of five Indian Information Technology Institutes (IIIT) in the mode of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Surat, Bhopal, Bhagalpur, Agartala and Raichur, and 15 existing IIITs to be provided the status of Institutes of National Importance (INI).

Union Minister Nishank said during the conversation on the Bill in the House that, with the participation of the Center, State and Industry, a beautiful model of training students has been developed for the first time. For some IIITs, some institutions have an average of 70 percent placements with 100 percent placements. He said the international ranking of institutions has made significant progress since the Modi government came to power.

India had five institutions in the top 1000 universities worldwide in 2015. The number has now risen to 48. Now institutes also make the top 100 and top 50 and there is rising research work.

Such five IIITs will now appear in the 2017 IIIT (PPP) Act. 15 Other PPP-made IIITs have already been included in this Act. In November 2010, the Union Cabinet approved the proposal for the establishment of 20 IIITs under PPP mode.

He told me that they had prepared their curriculum based on consultation with industry. The Bill provides for the granting of INI status to the current 15 IIITs prepared in PPP format, and the right to assign grades to the remaining five IIITs. Like every other institution, both of these IIITs would have the right to award BTech, MTech, and Ph.D. This bill also provides for a provision to amend the 2014 and 2017 Principal Act and to grant all five institutions statutory status.
