New site for IIT to be announced in a month, says Goa CM
PANJIM [Maha Media]: A new site for a proposed Indian Institute of Technology campus in Goa will be announced in a month, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said on Friday. The earlier site, in Shel-Melaulim in Sattari taluka, had to be scrapped after people in the area protested.
Three to four new places have been shortlisted and a panel set to be announced soon will visit them for a final decision, the CM said. "We will consider all aspects before finalising a site. It will be announced within a month," Sawant said.
