The centre would be set up at Jonapur in South Delhi, officials said, adding the institute would be modelled on the Institute of Technical Studies in Singapore, she said. The Singapore government had offered to provide technical expertise to the proposed institute during Ms Dikshits visit to that country in October last year.Complimenting the education department, Ms Dikshit said government schools have outshone public schools in Delhi in respect of results in Class 10 and 12.The education system in Delhi has been transformed to facilitate all-round development of students.
