RAJYA SABHA

Based on the recommendations made by the Scientific Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (SAC-PM), it has been decided to set up three new Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), one each in the States of Rajasthan, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh during the XI plan. In order to expand the facilities for high quality management education in the North-East, the Government has decided to establish an Indian Institute of Management (IIM), at Shillong.

After considering requests of the State Governments and other relevant factors such as existing regional distribution of Central Educational Institutions in the country, it has been decided to locate 5 more IITs and 6 more IIMs in the following States :-

IITs – Himachal Pradesh, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh (Indore), Gujarat and Punjab.

IIMs – Tamil Nadu, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh (Raipur), Uttarakhand and Haryana.

16 States which do not have a Central University at present, and which will get one Central University each in the 11th Plan are Bihar, Jharkhand, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Goa. Of these, in three States, existing State Universities will be taken over by the Central Government and converted into Central Universities. These three Universities are Dr. Hari Singh Gaur University, Sagar (in Madhya Pradesh), Guru Ghasidas University, Bilaspur (in Chhattisgarh), and Goa University. It has also been decided to locate 14 world class Universities, one each in the 14 States / Regions as detailed in the Annexure. State Governments of Bihar, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh have offered land free of cost for setting up of IITs in their States. Locations of remaining Institutes / Central Universities will depend on various factors including the sites as may be offered by the respective State Governments.

A total outlay for setting up of one new IIT, with an intake capacity of 860 students is expected to be Rs. 760 crores. The total outlay for setting up of one IIM, with an intake capacity of 180 students is expected to be of the order of Rs. 210.25 crores. The estimated cost for infrastructure of a Central University with a School of Medicine, with an intake capacity of about 12700 students, would be about Rs. 720 crores spread over a period of 9 years. These new Institutes / universities will be funded by the Central Government (except cost of developed land).

Union ministry did not like Kota as an IIT location as it is too far from a major city

This is very interesting. As per World gazetter Kota’s population is 807,920. The two cities in Rajasthan that have a larger population are Jodhpur  (971,407) and Jaipur (2,997,114). Following is an excerpt from a report in Telegraph about this.

A spot near Hyderabad has been picked for the Andhra Pradesh IIT, but the HRD ministry and the governments of Rajasthan and Bihar are at loggerheads over finalising sites.

While the site Bihar picked suffers from waterlogging, the ministry considers the Rajasthan government’s choice — Kota — “too far from a major city”.

It looks to me that the new IITs will be in locations where they can form an ITIR (Information Technology Investment Regions) and close to an airport. It is not clear what  "close" would mean. I hope 100kms is considered close enough. This could be an issue for the IIT in Orissa. In Orissa the major cities are (i) Bhubaneswar (1,636,216), (ii) Rourkela (542,481), (iii) Brahmapur (389,830) and (iv) Sambalpur (254,236). If Kota was not considered a major city, by that definition center may not consider Rourkela, Brahmapur and Sambalpur as major cities. But then too many institutes are coming up in Bhubaneswar and it would be better to have the IIT somewhat away from Bhubaneswar. With all these constraints, the only location that seems appropriate in terms of being near a major city and yet not in Bhubaneswar, but near another city in Orissa, would be a location between Bhubaneswar and Berhampur that is as far from Bhubaneswar as acceptable to the center. My guess is a location 100 kms from Bhubaneswar (on the NH) and on the major Rail corridor could be acceptable to the center as such a location would be only 1hr (to 1.5 hr) away from Bhubaneswar; thus not too far from the only major city in Orissa. Yet it will be close to Berhampur to positively impact Berhampur and help create a Bhubaneswar-Berhampur knowledge corridor. Also, if it is established in the Ganjam district (even though right on the Ganjam-Khordha border on the NH5) it will give a psychological boost to south Orissa which is tagged as among the most backward areas of Orissa and India.

Minister Chandrasekhar Sahu’s take on the IIT and world class central university

Following is an excerpt from a report in New Indian Express.

Sahu claimed that the sanction of two central institutes was possible because of his persistent demand for an IIT in a backward but mineral-rich State like Orissa. The IIT will be established with an estimated cost of Rs 760 crore and the Central University Rs 1,000 crore.

Women only IIT in Amravati, Vidarbha (Maharashtra)?

Following is an excerpt from a report in Telegraph.

President Pratibha Patil has asked the government to set up an Indian Institute of Technology exclusively for girls.

She has also insisted that it be built in Amravati, her former Lok Sabha constituency. Amravati is in Maharashtra’s Vidarbha, which has seen a spate of suicides by debt-ridden farmers.

None of the country’s top institutes of higher education like the IITs or the Indian Institutes of Management caters only to women. Nor is there any central university meant only for women.

In a letter to the human resource development ministry dated March 7, Rashtrapati Bhavan has said the IIT in Amravati should be set up as soon as possible. A project proposal was attached with the request.

Pratibha’s husband Devisingh Shekhawat hails from Amravati and was once mayor there. She herself represented it in the Lok Sabha between 1991 and 1996.

… The IIT proposal has been prepared by Kamal Singh, vice-chancellor of Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University.

… The proposal suggests that the new IIT offer only “integrated” courses, where students fresh out of school can get postgraduate degrees after five years.

The existing seven IITs have some five-year integrated courses, but Singh said she was in favour of making them mandatory across all streams.

Statistics on IIT recruitment have shown that a larger section of postgraduate students choose work in India over foreign jobs, unlike undergraduate students.

IITs plan to pay handsomely to top-notch researchers

Following is an excerpt from a report in Telegraph.

… The decision, officials at the human resource development ministry concede, indicates a desperate effort to stall the drain of top teachers from IITs to the corporate sector or foreign universities, which offer salaries several times higher than what the government pays.

The ministry has set up a committee under IIT Kharagpur director Damodar Acharya to determine the performance indicators and recommend the raise the best professors will receive.

Quality and quantity of peer-reviewed research and student feedback from classes are likely to be two crucial indicators, sources said.

“The top faculty, who are often wooed by the private sector, will now receive differential treatment and will get salaries close to what they would in the corporate world,” a senior official said.

At present, the faculty are paid a fraction of what fresh IIT graduates earn.

… A separate committee will be set up to revise pay scales for all faculty members at the IITs and the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs). But the revised scales will be no match for corporate salaries, officials conceded. The increments the Acharya committee recommends will be over and above the hike.
