NUZVID: Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy on Friday said the Andhra Pradesh International Institute of Information Technology (APIIIT) being set up here would have a budget of Rs. 900-crore.

He was speaking after laying foundation stone for the APIIIT here, one of the three campuses proposed under the Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies.

The other two Andhra Pradesh International Institute of Information Technology campuses are coming up at Idupulapaya in Kadapa district and Basar in Adilabad district.

Intake

Dr. Reddy, said these institutions would begin functioning from July 2008, with an intake of 500 students each. But when they became fully functional, they would have an intake of 2,000 students every year.

As they would be offering a six-year integrated course for students who passed SSC, each of these institutions would have a total strength of 12,000 students by 2014.

The Chief Minister said that the idea of setting up these institutions came when the Government got with much difficulty and after a long struggle an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Medak district.

“We felt the need to set up an institution like the IIT on our own, and we modelled these institutions on the lines of the successfully functioning IIIT in Hyderabad,” he observed.

Of the total budget of Rs.900 crore for the APIIIT here, Rs.150 crore would be earmarked in the next year’s budget.

Educational hub

Dr. Reddy said Nuzvid is famous as an educational hub, and hence, a decision had been taken to set up one of the three APIIITs here.

The dreams that the late Rajiv Gandhi nursed in the field of technology would be put into practice here, he remarked, and raised the slogan ‘Johar Rajiv Gandhi’ thrice.
