The National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are a group of higher education engineering Institutes in India. Comprising twenty autonomous Institutes, they are located in one each major state/territory of India. On their inception decades ago, all NITs were referred to as Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) and were governed by their respective state governments. These Institutes of National Importance are at par with the Indian Institutes of Technology.
NITs were founded to promote regional diversity and multi-cultural understanding in India. Therefore, in the NITs, half of the student population in each batch is drawn from the respective state of the NIT and the other half is drawn from the rest of India on the basis of a national merit list.
