Proposed New NITs
Engineering Entrance , JEE Main , JEE Main & Advanced , academic , nit delhi

  The proposed National Institute of Technology (NIT) for the national capital is likely to start operation at NIT Warangal in Andhra Pradesh due to failure of the state government to suggest a temporary campus. The government of NCT of Delhi is yet to finalise its temporary campus for the proposed institute which has been approved by the Union Cabinet.

The matter will be discussed at the conference of state education ministers here on Friday. As per the agenda for the conference, the ten new NITs will start functioning from next month in temporary campuses.

They will be mentored by the older NITs for two to three years after which these new institutions will function on their own. These NITs are being started in addition to the existing 17 NITs.

They will come up in states and union territories like Goa, Puducherry, Delhi, Uttarakhand, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim. Committees comprising mentor directors and secretaries of the concerned state governments were constituted to suggest temporary campuses for these institutes.

While nine states have submitted their reports on temporary campuses, Delhi is yet to finalise the temporary campus for the proposed institute. The HRD Ministry has accepted the recommendation on temporary campus for seven institutes.

The ministry is waiting for a recommendation from Delhi government by June 20. If the city government fails to finalise the temporary campus before the deadline, the ministry will go ahead with starting the institute at NIT Warangal .NIT delhi would be made of whopping 300 Crore much bigger budget than other NIT's because it would serve Chandigarh and Delhi both the agenda note said.

people should also think that number of IITs are increasing as population is increasing which indirectly means there will be lots of opportunities and future security,so no point of talking about dilution of system specially when Sibal(ji) is in power..delhi goverment ki jaan loge kya? they are busy with common wealth games :)
