The government has cleared a proposal to set up three new Indian Institute of Information Technologies (IIITs) under the PPP mode. These IIITs will come up in Assam, Tripura and Rajasthan which had sent proposals to the HRD ministry under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme. The capital cost of each IIIT would be about Rs 128 crore contributed in the ratio of 50:35:15 by the Centre, the state Government and the industry, respectively.

According to the HRD ministry, sanction of IIIT for another three states would be given shortly. A statement by the ministry said 11 state governments have identified land and are also in the process of identifying the industry partners.

At present, there are four IIITs in the country and the government proposes to add 20 more on not-for-profit PPP mode to address the challenges faced by the Indian IT industry and meet the growth objective. These institutions are conceived as self-sustaining, research-led institutions.

The scheme also provides for faculty development programme for which Rs 50 crores has been earmarked.
