Following is a report from

Plans are afoot to conduct the final year classes of Indian Institute of Handloom Technology (IIHT) at the institute’s Salem branch, Tamil Nadu.

The IIHT was established here after much struggle last year as there was an inordinate delay in identifying and handing over the land for the institute. As work on the required infrastructure is far from over, it is now being mooted to hold the final year classes for the IIHT course at Salem. Ever since its inception, the IIHT has been operating on Panchayat College premises here.

As required by the IIHT officials, the institute was provided with classrooms, hostel for students besides four staff quarters. It was hoped that the infrastructure would be readied soon and the institute would be shifted to its new premises at Bhatli Road. But more than a year has passed and only a boundary wall has come up.

And with the student strength on the rise, the Handloom Development Commissioner under the Ministry of Handloom wrote a letter to the State Government on October 7 urging it to provide three additional classrooms besides 30-bed hostel. But with the Panchayat College expressing its inability to provide more classrooms, plans are being made to conduct the final year classes in IIHT Salem.

Meanwhile, District Collector Suresh Prasad Padhy has apprised the Secretary, Higher Education of the slow pace of work at IIHT which is likely to be completed by 2013.

He has suggested construction of additional three halls on the premises of the Panchayat College for IIHT which can be later used for election purpose.
