The Government of India gave its nod for the commencement of academic session at new Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) at Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, from the temporary campus of Sree Rama Engineering College.
Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the approval was granted for the operationalisation of IISER at Tirupati from the transit or temporary campus, at an estimated cost of Rs 137.30 crore for the initial three years (2015-18).
As a sequel to the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, bifurcating the then state into Andhra Pradesh and Telengana, the Centre had decided to set up an IISER, an institute of national importance, in the residual State of Andhra Pradesh. Andhra Pradesh government has earmarked 244 acres of land at Srinivasapuram, Pangur and Chindepalli villages of Yerpedu Mandal for construction of the permanent campus of IISER, Tirupati.
