    To boost the construction of IIT infrastructure across the country, the Union Cabinet has approved over Rs.7,000 crore for building permanent campuses for six new Indian Institute of Technology (IITs). Each of the permanent campuses to be established at Tirupati (Andhra Pradesh), Palakkad (Kerala), Dharwad (Karnataka), Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir), Bhilai (Chhattisgarh), and Goa will have a facility for housing 1,200 students from the academic year 2020-2021, said official sources. The nod for the construction of permanent structures gives six new ITs the desired impetus. Currently, these institutions are functioning from temporary campuses an after the construction of the campuses, this strength will go up to 7,200. Academic sessions of the IITs at Tirupati and Palakkad started in 2015-16 and at Dharwad, Bhilai, Jammu and Goa in 2016-17 from their respective temporary structures. According to the Detailed Project Report (DPR), a sum of about Rs.20,304 crore was required for the construction of permanent campuses over a period of seven years and cleared amount is meant to be invested in the first phase.
