IIT Rajasthan to run from Jodhpur college

Rajasthan IIT to run from Jodhpur college

Jodhpur: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Rajasthan, which is scheduled to begin its academic session next year, will temporarily operate from the M.B.M. (Mugniram Bangur Memorial) Engineering College in Jodhpur until the construction of a new building.

"A letter for acquisition of land for the IIT has been sent to the District Collector. Four hundred twenty one acres land out of the marked land is under private ownership, thus their acquisition process will start soon", the institute's Chief Administrative Officer Vipin Chandra Sharma said.

He also informed that the IIT will run at the MBM Engineering College till the construction of the new building is complete.

The laboratories of the college will be constructed at par with the IIT. Students opting for hostel facility at the IIT, would, for the time being, be accommodated in the hostel constructed for AIMS.

The three-member group from IIT Rajasthan has also demanded 100 acres more land near the marked one so that research project for the IIT could be established there.

A decision on the extra land requirement will be taken only once the three-member group from IIT Rajasthan submits its report seeking more land for the IIT.
