Source: New Indian Express
Three locations have been identified in the district for setting up the proposed Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research (IISER), Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan told the Assembly on Tuesday.

The Jersey farm at Vithura, Bonakkad Estate at Vithura and the Kariavattom campus of the Kerala University are the proposed locations, he said in reply to a question by V Sivankutty. The State Government has also informed the Centre of its readiness to lease out land on a long-term basis for setting up the IISER.

He said that the Planning Commission has given in-principle approval for the project.

Following the nod by the Union Human Resources Ministry, the government had appointed the Higher Education principal secretary to find suitable locations.
