    “Glad to inform that Maharashtra gets its first Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT). It will be located at Nagpur,” Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said.

    “The Government of Maharashtra received the IIIT approval letter today. Thanks to Union HRD Ministry,” Fadnavis tweeted last night.

    The Chief Minister also thanked Minister of Human Resource Development (MHRD) Smirti Irani for the approval.

    Earlier there were two options to set up the IIIT in Maharashtra, either in Pune or at Nagpur.

    In 2008, the HRD Ministry decided to set up IIITs during the 11th Five Year Plan (2007-12) to address the challenges faced by the Indian IT-industry and growth of the domestic market in the sector.

    It was decided to set up 20 IIITs on private-public partnership (PPP) in the country where the Centre and state along with the industry would be stakeholders.
