History:

The Ministry of Human Resources Development through its order of 1st July 1998 constituted the Rame Gowda Committee, a committee set up with the aim to submit a project report regarding the possibility and logistics of setting up a National Institute of Excellence in Information Technology with Allied Sciences. This Institute would then carry out the duty of pioneering research and development with emphasis on industry linkages and networking at national as well as in international levels. The national task force on IT came up with the ideas of wired-village concepts to $50-billion software development programs within 6-8 years. To achieve this target, there was an urgent need for massive manpower generation for which the Task Force called for a number of front-ranking IT centers of excellence, of which the first was established in Allahabad.
It was with this hope of the members of the Committee that the setting up of this institute would steer in an era of establishment of such centers across the country. Moreover, this institute was expected to emerge as a national center of excellence in IT along with like sciences and technologies.
