In the backdrop of the centre’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh, HRD Ministry has given its nod for an IIT, an IIM and three central universities among other institutes for the Seemandhra region. The move is aimed at striking a balance between the two regions, Telangana and Seemandhra, in the establishment of premier institutes, though the bigger objective is to ensure that students from both the regions have equal opportunities and can reap maximum benefits.
Approximately Rs 6,000 to Rs 7,000 crore would be spent for establishment of the institutes in the Seemandhra region. The HRD Ministry has communicated its decision to the Home Ministry, the decision would be placed before the GoM for consideration. The ministry has also cleared an IISER and an IIIT for the region. Different stakeholders have been making representations to GoM for separate institutes for the region as the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh will leave the Seemandhra region without any of the elite higher educational institutes which are mostly concentrated in Hyderabad in the Telangana region.
