The Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi will soon start its extended branch at Haryana. This development is being planned after the Haryana government offered 100 acres of land to the institute.
According to M Balakrishnan, deputy director, IIT-D, before deciding on how to make the best possible use of the land, permission from the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has to be obtained on the same. "We have already written to MHRD about the land offered to IIT-D and after we hear from them we will use the land as an extension to our current campus," he informed. As per Rakesh Kumar, registrar, IIT-D, the institute will not conduct B.Tech programmes at the new campus. It will rather use that land for research related activities and entrepreneurship development programmes. The new campus, when ready, will ease out space-related problems that the IIT is facing now. IIT-D is spread across 300 acres of land out of which 50 acres is forest area. With the available spread of land already in use, there is no space left to construct facilities like more research labs. Also, the student strength of IIT-D at present is approximately 8000, for which the current campus is not adequate. The other problem faced by the institute is the shortage of faculty. IIT-D is short of almost 200 faculty - as against the sanction.
