Hyderabad: The Centre has asked State governments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to identify land and physical infrastructure required for establishment of higher education institutes like Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in both the states.

In the recent budget, the government had allotted one crore for each institution. The funds will be granted to both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development said in a statement.

The ministry's department of higher education has decided to establish one Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), National Institute of Technology (NIT), Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Central University (CU) and one Tribal University (TU) in the State of Andhra Pradesh.

In Telangana state, one Tribal University (TU) is set to be established. This is in accordance with the 13th Schedule of Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, the ministry stated.

The communiqué added that the academic session can start after approval of the Expenditure Finance Committee and the Cabinet for establishment of each institution.

After the bifurcation of the state, the central government has granted the higher educational institutes to both the states. The Centre has approved for more institutes to residuary state of AP than Telangana, which is entitled to retain Hyderabad, which is home to many institutions, as its own capital after 10 years. Within 10 years AP has to build its own capital city, for which the State government is yet to identify the site.
