Nath said the project was approved by the Centre in Public Private Partnership (PPP) model in July, 2012. The project was delayed by six years due to lack of initiative by the erstwhile Left Front government, he said adding that the newly formed BJP-IPFT government was not ready to waste a single day on the matter. "The construction for the IIIT will be made on a plot of 52.08 acres land at Bodhjungnagar. Meanwhile, we want to start the first academic session in NIT campus this year, Nath said.
