“By setting up IIIT the objective of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India programme can be achieved.It will help strengthen Information Technology,Industry and e-Governance”,states Chief Minister Raghubar Das in his letter to Union Human Resource Minister Smriti Irani.

Das has appealed that the Centre should work on a priority basis to set up IIIT in Jharkhand. The CM has written that during his visit to Ranchi in August 2014,Narendra Modi,while addressing an election rally,promised to set up IIIT.But the Centre has made no move toward this end so far,though the state government officials are actively involved for this.

In his letter,Das has said,while the land was already identified for setting up IIIT and running it on Public-Private partnership mode in Jharkhand,the process to acquire another piece of 15 acre land was on.”’The area of the land was made in consultation and recommendation of the government of India”,states Das in his letter.
