IIT-Delhi to go to Haryana, new campus in Sonipat

Source : The Times of India
June 14, 2012

 Date: 14th June 2012

SONIPAT/NEW DELHI: IIT-Delhi will soon set up its extension campus in Sonipat, just a few kilometres from the capital's border. Responding to a letter from the IIT-D director, Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has announced that his government will provide 50 acres to the institute in Rajiv Gandhi Education City in Sonipat.

The 2,000-acre Education City, which was launched on Sunday, is the first-of-its-kind in the country, housing dozens of campuses of higher education institutes.

IIT-D director R K Shevgaonkar's letter was handed over to Hooda by his son and Rohtak MPDeepender Singh Hooda, the lone parliamentarian on the IIT advisory council. Shevgaonkar has said the extension campus would not only facilitate the institute's much needed expansion but also provide an additional impetus to the economic and technical growth of the state.

"The land at Sonipat will be used for activities like faculty development, incubation and setting up science and technology park, which would contribute in the growth of Haryana. We have also asked for land in Jhajjar, which would be used to set up a campus for research activities," he said.

IIT-D, which has the second highest number of students but the smallest campus, has been searching for land in NCR as it doesn't have enough space in Delhi.

Earlier in the day, Hooda laid foundation stones of 10 educational institutions that would come up in over 168 acres in the coming Education City. The Haryana government estimates that once fully functional, Education City would have over 1 lakh students. "You can imagine the impact it would have on Sonipat's development and the state and Sonipat would compete with Gurgaon," the chief minister said. 

Education City is being developed on the pattern of Oxford University, the government claimed. Besides regular courses like management, information technology and computer sciences, it would also house institutes offering courses in bio-medical engineering, bio-technology, nano-technology, defence research and film and media studies. 

The state government has reserved 25% of all seats for students from Haryana. Outstanding students from the state will also get a special rebate in fees.
