Una H.P. – 177 209
Our Institute was established in the year 2014-15 as an Institute of National Importance under the MoE, GoI, by an IIIT (PPP) Act of Parliament No. 23 of 2017.
I assumed charge as the Founder Director of this Institute on 05, July 2018.
Prior to joining, I was invited to attend the Governing Body Meeting of the Institute in the Office of Additional Secretary, MoE, as the Director designate and special invitee in which Master Plan of the Institute was scheduled to be approved.
As the Master Plan was prepared without the user requirement specification from the Institute, the approval of the Master Plan was deferred. Then the architects prepared the Master Plan based on the user requirement specification given by the Institute and got approved.
The CPWD prepared the Notice Inviting Tenders and published in the month of September 2019. The deadline for Tenders have been October 2019 and the award was finalized in the month of December 2019. The contractor mobilized the machinery, material, and manpower for commencing the construction work. The Bhoomi Pooja was performed in the month of January 2020 with the expected completion time of 14 months.
But unfortunately, when the earth was excavated water came up due to its water table at a depth of 2 meters. So, the foundation has to be changed and the architects have to rework the structural design which took two months time.
The CoVID-19 pandemic struck the whole nation and IIIT Una was also not an exception. The work got delayed due to the first and second waves by about six months.
