After conducting a meeting with the Uttarakhand higher education minister Dhan Singh Rawat, Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal announced the establishment of three new Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) in the state.
Pokhriyal also talked about the opening of the new Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in the state. The minister made this decision during his meeting with Dhan Singh Rawat.
“We will soon open three IIITs in public-private partnership mode in Dehradun, Udham Singh Nagar, and Haridwar. The state government should also give us suggestions for the establishment of IISER in the state. The Ministry of Education will release grants for setting up these institutes at the earliest,” said Pokhriyal.
Pokhriyal conducted a meeting with Uttarakhand higher education minister Dhan Singh Rawat regarding the setting up of facilities to help the students of the state to gain a quality education and has asked him to focus on women empowerment through setting up of educational facilities in hilly areas.
“In this proposal, the state government can give its three-four priorities keeping in view the Himalayan, backward, and remote areas, where the central government will start higher education facilities for girls. Such projects can provide better solutions towards women empowerment in the future,” Pokhriyal added.
