IITs to Adopt Ten Villages
All the older IITs are going to adopt ten villages each, and each new IIT will adopt five villages as part of Unnat Bharat Abhiyan. According to the Union human resource development ministry, each IIT has to adopt certain villages to help the government in designing a model for development of villages. The scheme will be launched by the ministry next month.
Under Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, the teachers and students of each IIT will visit the villages to identify their problems and make solutions. The solutions are implemented with the cooperation of industries using technologies.
R.K. Shevgaonkar, IIT Delhi Director informed that IIT had identified the villages they would like to adopt. He extended that the scheme may be launched in the next week or so. According to him, each IIT has a rural development wing to focus on problems in villages such as sanitation, contaminated water, food perseveration etc. All the IITs will work together for sorting problems in the adopted village and develop solutions.
