Setting up of International Technical Institution in Singapore
The Singapore Government had suggested formation of a Joint Working Group (JWG) at the Government-to-Government level for setting up of an International Institute of Technology at Singapore. However, Human Resource Development Ministry is of the view that a working group at institutional level would be more appropriate especially since the proposed institute is to be set up by the IITs and not by the Government of India. The HRD Ministry has already recommended the names of the members for JWG from the Indian side. The Government of Singapore is yet to suggest their representative for the JWG.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development Smt. D. Purandeswari, in a written reply to a question, in the Rajya Sabha today.
