The Department of Heavy Industry has approved a grant of Rs 78 crore to support these centres.
While the centre at the IIT, Delhi has already been inaugurated, the two others at IISc, Bengaluru and the KIAMS Pune were likely to start by September this year.
All these centers will become self sustainable within three years.
They have been mandated to cover nearby clusters and colleges.
