All set to expand, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) will be nearly doubling their present intake, opening new campuses and introducing new courses.
IIT-Roorkee has already zeroed in on NOIDA to locate its new campus while at least two other IITs are scouting for land. Though the attempt by IIM, Bangalore to open a campus in Singapore had ran into trouble with the Ministry of Human Resource Development, IIT expansion plans have the full backing of the Ministry. IIT-Delhi is likely to open a campus in Rajasthan, either in Jaipur or Alwar. IIT-Chennai will start a research centre in BHEL at Trichy, keeping the option of developing it into a campus later. IIT-Mumbai, which had signed an MoU with the Goa government four years ago, is pursuing the project to start a campus there. It will also upgrade its present campus in Powai. IIT-Kanpur too will have a new campus. IITs are also in the process of enhancing coordination amongst themselves to ensure uniformity in standards.
