The idea of NIIT was born on a rainy, monsoon evening in Mumbai over endless cups of tea, way back in 1981. Two engineering graduates from the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi were envisioning the future of Information Technology training and founded a company that is now considered the crucible of India’s IT revolution. By imparting information technology education to non-technical graduates, NIIT revolutionized the technology landscape in India.

Knowledge cannot be stolen by thieves or taxed by kings or governments. It can neither be divided amongst siblings, not is it heavy or burdensome to carry. The more it is spent or shared, the more it increases as we learn by teaching others. Knowledge is indeed the most precious of possessions.
Ancient Indian Shloka or Verse
NIIT was founded on the core belief that education is fundamental right and knowledge sharing is a privilege and a responsibility. That’s why we believe in making a difference. We believe that learning is a driver of change not just for organizations and communities but society in general. That’s why we are always giving back.
