Hamirpur, January 1

The local National Institute of Technology (NIT) has been placed in the group of promising institutions by the Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA)-2021 released by the Union Ministry of Education.

The ARIIA is a joint initiative of the Union Ministry of Education (MoE), and the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to rank all major educational institutions on indicators related to innovation, start-up and entrepreneurship development among students and the faculty.

Dr Lalit Awasthi, Director of the NIT, said that the institution had taken a big leap by securing a place in the ARIIA list. Notably, 674 institutes from across the country participated in the current edition of ARIIA 2020-21. NIT, Hamirpur, is only second to IIT, Mandi, on the list.

Dr Awasthi said NIT, Hamirpur, had secured its place in the “brand-promising category” for initiatives in filing patents, copyright design, quality measures and implementing recommendations of NEP-2020. The institute had been able to secure more than 40 research and development projects in the previous session.

The faculty, students and staff members of the NIT had put in tremendous efforts for this achievement, he added. — OC
