MP writes to PM on IIT

MP Prathap Simha, recently, has written sererate letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Human Resources Development Minister Smriti Zubin Irani, seeking establishment of the proposed Indian Institute of Technology in Mysuru.

Pointing out that the Centre has sanctioned an IIT for Karnataka in the current Budget, the MP has stated that Mysuru is best suited for the premier institution due to its location, infrastructure and mainly its famed educational and health institutions.

Mysuru is well-connected by both road and railways and has a sophisticated airport. Besides, it is just 140 km from the capital city of Bengaluru and near to a major harbour in Mangaluru. If the IIT is established in Mysuru, it will be a fitting tribute to the University of Mysore, which is celebrating its centenary this year, Simha has explained.

Apart from the premier engineering institutions, Mysuru is famous for Yoga and Ayurveda and attracts people from across the world. If the city gets an IIT, it will complete the picture of the cultural and academic capital of the State, he has pointed out.
