3. What is the comparison between studying in private college and government, IIT, and NIT?
Comparison between IIT and NITs and private colleges are different. IITs are above all the engineering colleges in India while NITs are more comparable to regional engineering colleges in the state. While private engineering colleges are independent colleges with a different approach in dealing. As private colleges have financial stability so they don’t depend on grants from the government to implement anything in the colleges. Some of the top private engineering colleges in top metropolitan cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Ahmedabad can be seen on clicking the city name.
The above details provide the overview of IIT and NITs and about private colleges and some additional details regarding the top engineering colleges in metropolitan cities of India. Not only IITs and NITs but private and state universities also function in the same way; their efforts help the students to excel in their career. So, Peer and parental pressure should be reduced on students so that they can achieve their goal peacefully.
