Venue For A New IIT

Posted by Part Time Jobs Online | Thursday, November 20, 2008

Last year the ministry of Human Resource Development gave the setting up of three new Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), two new Indian Institutes of science Education and Research (IISER), and two new schools of planning and Architecture, the thumbs up.

Of these, the IITs were slated to come up in Rajasthan, Bihar and Andra Pradesh. Rajasthan was keen about the estanlishment of an IIT as the state has always produced a large number of toppers in the IIT-JEE entrances, however, it was then unclear where the IIT would come up with both jaipur and kota vying for the top slot.

The Government of Rajasthan has finally decided on kota as the ideal location for the new IIT, ahead of Jaipur and other contenders pilani Udaipur, and Jodhpur.

Some 250 kms from Jaipur, Kota new a coaching hub, allegedly churns out about one-third of the students who crack the JEE.

The city boasts of its students scoring in the top brackets in the AIEEE as well as in medical colleges across the country.

However it is this as well as accessibility that has asked the state government to look fo another venue.

Said an official from the HRD Ministry, “we would much prefer Jaipur as it has good connectivity so logistics and access are not a concern.

However we are open to other sites at Udaipur and Jodhpur.”The state Government has not, however budged from its stance on kota.
