The proposed sub-centre of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Chennai, possibly would be set up at a 250-acre land currently in possession of the Animal Welfare Department in Vithura, in Thiruvananthapuram district.
A consensus in this regard has been reached in a discussion between the Kerala Government and the officials of the IIT, Chennai, reports said.
The sus-centre would be later developed as a full-fledged one over a period of five years.
Kerala and Pondicherry were considered for the project and Kerala was selected since large number of students from Kerala join the IIT-Chennai every year.
