Coaching Centres To Turn Into Colleges

State government has granted an IIT coaching class permission to convert all its six centres in Mumbai into full-fledged junior colleges. IITian's Pace. It has started a charitable trust, Pace Education Trust, which will run the new junior colleges. The government feels with a large number of students applying for the science stream, there is a need for more science colleges. Hence, the special permission for Pace to start Class XI from the academic year 2010-'11. The new junior colleges will be permanently unaided. In addition to physics, chemistry and math, subjects that are already being taught at the six centres, Pace will now hire language teachers for the colleges.
