Govt to consider IIT status for Burla College: PM

My comment: Whats so great about "considering". They can
consider any collge for an IIT. Just considering or seriously considering
does not mean much. If they decide to make it an IIT then
its a real news.


Govt to consider IIT status for Burla College: PM

Pioneer News Service | Bhubaneswar

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has assured Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Chandrashekhar Sahu that the Government will consider his request on a priority basis for providing Indian Institute of Technology status to Burla Engineering College and setting up a Central University in the tribal-dominated KBK region.

According to an official release here on Friday, Sahu had argued that in the KBK region 89 per cent of the population are tribals and 46 per cent are Harijans.

Therefore, there is a requirement of a Central University there for achieving the ultimate objective of poverty alleviation of tribals.

Similarly, the University College of Engineering at Burla is the State's first technical university set up in 1956, two years after IIT was established at Kharagpur.

The alumini of the college have played pivotal role in the development of the country, Sahu pointed out.
