The new established IITs lack infrastructure facilities & the teaching staff
The new IITs that were established 7 years ago have some disappointing areas like the insufficiency of teachers, poor infrastructure and most of them are running in the temporary campuses and most of them are located in remote areas. These IITs have not been able to fill the vacancy for teachers according to the RTI report that surfaced last year.
