more on IIT demands for Karnataka
Mumbai Mirror, India -
Bangalore: The Karnataka government is lobbying for setting up of an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Hassan, the home district of the Gowda family. ...
There is plan to upgrade some exisiting institutions to IIT like institutes (IIESTs). There are two big flaws in the current short list, as it did not consider regional balance and it did not consider NITs, some of which are better than the shortlisted institutes. We suggest alternatives and keep track of developements in this front as well as other IIT related initiatives, such as various branch campuses of exisiting IITs that are being proposed now.
