June 04, 2012

 

Date: 4th June 2012

The new institute is likely to come up near Vadodara with an estimated cost of Rs130 crore, 50 per cent of which will be paid by the Centre, 35 per cent would be contributed by the state and the rest by the industry partner.

Gujarat government has roped in Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) as its industry partner to set up the country’s fifth Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in the state under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.

The new institute is likely to come up near Vadodara with an estimated cost of Rs130 crore, 50 per cent of which will be paid by the Centre, 35 per cent would be contributed by the state and the rest by the industry partner.

The state government would provide free of cost land for the institute. While, the participating industry would also contribute towards research laboratories, internships, faculty chairs. The Centre will also provide recurring expenditure of Rs 10 crore per annum for the first four years from the commencement of the institute.

A senior official of state government said, “IT giant TCS showed interest in the IIIT. The government and the company are finalising the formalities for the project. The HRD Ministry has been informed about the development and the final clearance to the project is expected to be given shortly.”

As now, Allahabad, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Kanchipuram have an IIIT each, offering undergraduate as well as postgraduate courses. Admissions for undergraduate courses in IIITs are done through the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE). The 11th Five Year Plan envisages establishment of 20 more IIITs in the country on the PPP model.
