Hon'ble Human Resource Minister as Chairman of IIIT Council

Hon'ble Minister of Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar has called for updating of the IIIT’s curriculum to meet the evolving Information Technology scenario. Union Minister was chairing the second meeting of council of IIIT in his capacity as Chairman of the council, yesterday. Addressing the meeting, the Minister said the IIITs, which were introduced during the tenure of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, have played an important role in India becoming a software giant. He, however, pointed out that though India is known as a software giant, it has not come out with popular IT tools like Google, WhatsApp, Facebook or Twitter. “We must become real power in software by innovating such new possible utilities,” he said adding that each IIITs should strive to become „centre of excellence‟ in the next 3-5 years. Noting that there are two streams of IIITs – some government funded and some under Public- Private Partnership, the Minister said all the IIITs should work together and share among themselves best experiments and practices.
