There are 4 Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) in the country. They are funded and managed by the Central Government. Here’s a look at the funds that were allotted to these 4 IIITs in this year’s Union Budget.
The Human Resource Development Ministry has plans to set up more IIITs under Public-Private-Partnership model. A bill, known as ‘The Indian Institute of Information Technology Bill, 2010’ was introduced in Parliament. Till now the bill has not been approved.
