June 12, 2012

 

Date: 12th June 2012

The central government would provide 57.5 per cent share of the total cost while the state government would give 35 per cent share and the rest will be borne by private or industrial houses, for establishing the new institute.

Northeast India's first IIIT (Indian Institute of Information Technology) will be set up in Tripura with a cost of Rs 128 crore, Tripura Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty said. "The HRD Ministry has decided to establish 20 more IIITs in the country in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode. In the first phase, five IIITs would be set up in different parts of India, including one in Tripura," he said quoting HRD Minister Kapil Sibal.

Currently, there are four IIITs in India — Allahabad, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Kanchipuram. These autonomous institutions are providing undergraduate as well as postgraduate technical education.

"The central government has decided to provide more financial aid to the northeastern states than the other parts of the country to set up the IIITs," Chakraborty added.

"To establish the IIITs in the northeast, the central government would provide 57.5 per cent share of the total cost while the state government would give 35 per cent share and the private or industrial houses' share would be 7.5 per cent," the minister said.

To set up the IIITs in the other parts of India, excluding the northeast region, the central government's share would be around 50 per cent and the industrial share would be around ten per cent. (Source: igovernment)
