Quick Heal has tied up with the Maharashtra Government as one of the business partners for a state-of-the-art Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) to be set up in Pune. The other business partners for the Pune IIIT project are Rolta India Limited and Hubtown Limited.
Kailash Katkar, MD & CEO, Quick Heal, said, “It is an honour to be associated with an illustrious project such as the IIIT. It is only while setting up Quick Heal – the country’s largest software product company, today – did I realize the power we Indians have when equipped with knowledge and the right direction. I’m grateful to the Government of Maharashtra, who have given us the opportunity to help them create an infrastructure that will provide students from all sectors gain access to quality education.”
The state cabinet of the Maharashtra Government gave its nod for the project in Pune, the second city in the state after Nagpur to have such an institute. Both IIITs will be set up on Not-for-profit Private Public Partnership (N-PPP) model.
