The Union Cabinet in 2010 had approved setting up 20 IIITs under the Public Private Partnership (IIIT PPP). However, these institutes did not have the provision of providing formal degrees to the students at that time. So far, before getting the status of institutes of national importance, the IIITs used to run on Public Private Partnership wherein these institutes were set up, managed and provided financial assistance by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).
