The Indian Institute of Technology IIT in India are located in India, and it is an independent public institute of higher education studies. The first Indian Institute of Technology has established in 1951at the site of Hijli Detention Camp in Kharagpur. The Parliament of India declared IIT India as an Institute of National Importance and passed the Indian Institute of Technology (Kharagpur) ACT. The First Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru in the first Assembly for IITs Kharagpur in 1956 said:  Here in the place of that Hijli Detention Camp stands the fine monument of India, representing India’s urges, India’s future in the making.

This picture seems to me symbolical of the changes that are coming to India. The IIT India are looked and placed down their power, duties, and framework for governance, etc., by the Institute of Technology ACT 1961. The IIT India were listed approximately at 23 institutes by the Institute of Technology ACT 1961 and are located at, Kharagpur, Bombay, Roorkee, Bhilai, Madras, Delhi, Dhanbad, Dharwad, Goa, Guwahati, Jammu, Kanpur, Palghat, Patna, Ropar, Tirupati, Bhubaneswar, Gandhinagar, Hyderabad, Indore, Jodhpur, Mandi and Varanasi.

Each IIT India is an independent institution which is joined to the others Institute through a common IIT Council which controls their administration. The IIT India are independent bodies which are directly governed by the Parliament, and that’s why IIT India are required to answer the question raised in the Parliament regarding their status and working. From time to time MHRD also initiates activities for evaluation and improvements of IIT India. The IITs has a great green policy which aims to create a green office, that would carry out the green Audit and its institutional management practices such as energy, water, waste, construction projects, natural resources, and biodiversity conversion. Efforts are planned to calculate and control carbon footprint within the campus. The Union HRD Minister is the ex-officio Chairperson of IIT India Council.

The four campuses were made at Bombay in 1958, Madras in 1959, Kanpur in 1959 and Delhi in 1961 on the recommendation of Sarkar Committee. To add the new IIT’s the Indian Institute of Technology ACT was made in 1961.In Assam, the Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi promise the creation of new IIT in Assam to the students of Assam. In 1960 this was the sixth campus at Guwahati under the Assam record. The University of Roorkee was India’s oldest engineering college which was given as IIT status in 2001.
