Coimbatore’s textile institute to be upgraded to Indian Institute of Textiles

Following is an excerpt from a report in thaiindian.com.

The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Textile Management in Coimbatore will be upgraded and renamed Indian School of Textiles, the government announced Thursday.

“The school will engage itself in research and will also undertake comprehensive consultancy services for the industry,” Textiles Minister Dayanidhi Maran told reporters here.

Orissa should keep a watch on similar upgradations and make a case for upgradation of similar institutes  in Orissa. Some of the institutes that come into mind are:

  • Food Craft Institute Balangir – Should be upgraded to Indian Institute of Hotel Management
  • Biju Patnaik National Steel Institute, Puri – Should be upgraded to Indian Institute of Steel
  • IIMC Dhenakanal branch – Should be upgraded to an independent IIMC
  • IITTM Bhubaneswar branch – Should be upgraded to an independent IITTM

If I am missing something, please add in the comments.

Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology in Raebareli

A PIB reports on the setting up of this institute at a cost of 435 crores and when set up this institute will have B.Tech, M.Tech and Ph.D programs and will get the status of an Institute of National Importance.

Considering the number of steel plants in Orissa, the Orissa government should at the opportune moment push to make BPNSI (Biju Patnaik National Steel Institute) of similar status.
