IIT site

State government had finalized Bihta, a small township west to Patna as the site. But when the Central team came to inspect the area, it found that the place has a water-logging problem.Four months have passed since then but the Union human resources development ministry is yet to hear from the Bihar government.Apart from Bihar, an IIT is going to be opened in Medak in Andhra Pradesh while the site for Rajasthan has also not been finalized.With two states still to take any decision, the HRD ministry has sought clearance of the Expenditure Finance Committee for the IITs, a necessary step before the project gets moving.
