HRD okays IIT, IIM, 3 central varsities for Seemandhra

The HRD ministry has given its nod for an IIT, an IIM and three central universities among other institutes for the Seemandhra region which has witnessed widespread resentment over the Centre’s decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh.

The ministry has conveyed its decision to the home ministry which had forwarded representations made by different stakeholders to it earlier in response to the GoM on Telangana inviting suggestions on bifurcation of the state.

The decision would be placed before the GoM for consideration, sources in the ministry said.
The ministry has also cleared an IISER and an IIIT for the region.

The move is aimed at striking a balance between the two regions – Telangana and Seemandhra.
