New Delhi: Itâ€™s not an announcement of more holidays, but despite that thereâ€™s some good news for students of Andhra Pradesh.
The Centre has agreed to a proposal to give Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) status to the Andhra University Engineering College.
There are also plans that are afoot to bring an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) to the state.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy made the announcement in Visakhapatnam.
So with the demand for a separate Telengana state gathering strength, Visakhapatnam is getting greater attention as the city has the potential to rival capital Hyderabad.
Apart from a 200-acre Ceramic City and a Medical Institute that has been planned, there is a 500-acre Educational Village where premier institutes will set up their campuses also in the offing.
