Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT)  will soon come with its Guwahati campus which is likely to be operationalised by 2014.

Education and Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the government was working towards a 2013 deadline for making the IIIT operational but in the event it failed, then it would become operational by 2014. Students who have passed Plus II examination will be eligible for admission to the IIIT.

“While 50 percent seats will be reserved for students from the state, the remaining seats will be filled by students from outside the state and also from some South East Asian countries,” he said, while adding that the IIIT would be a centre of excellence not only in the country but also in the South East Asia.
