Lok Sabha passes IIIT-PPP Bill 2017; confers 15 more IIITs status of national importance

Lok Sabha passes IIIT-PPP Bill 2017Lok Sabha has passed Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIIT) (Public-private Partnership) Bill, 2017 wherein 15 more IIITs have been granted the status of national importance. The bill has been passed with a view to develop new knowledge in Information Technology (IT) and to provide manpower of global standards for the IT. This move comes after the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given its approval for the introduction of the Indian Institutes of Information Technology (Amendment) Bill, 2017 in Parliament in February this year. The bill may become an act or shall come into force once the Central Government notifies it in the Official Gazette.

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).
