Launched 3 years back in 2015, the Idea Internet Network (IIN) campaign by Idea Cellular has always been the butt of many jokes but this might soon change. BITS Pilani, Manipal and Jio Insitute were already in the published list of institutes. But according to rumours, GOI has shortlisted a 4th institute for the Institute of Eminence Status. The fourth Insitute is none other than the famous Idea Internet Network. This comes as a shock considering the fact that Idea and Reliance are competitors.
We had approached a Government of India employee for his quote on the issue. He had this to say, “Dekhiye Modiji jo bhi kar rahe, sab junta ke liye kar rahe! Jio aur IIN ko ek category mein rakhenge toh jyaada competion hoga! Jyaada competition maane jyaada improvement. Desh ki pragati! Jai Hind!”. We tried getting a comment from Idea Cellular but unfortunately Idea Cellular officials were too busy with their merger deal with Vodafone and were unavailable for comments. We will keep trying to reach them from our Jio phones.
This news comes as a ray of hope and happiness for many IIN trained engineers, doctors and social media experts. Mr. Varun, an IIN trained cyberworker for the BJP IT cell had this to say, “Dekhiye ji, this was supposed to happen. Idea Internet Network has produced the largest number of IT (Cell) workers in India. Desh ko aage barane ke liye you need people like us. My friends from IIT Guwahati, Kharagpur, etc., used to laugh at me when I used to say that I am from IIN. I would like to tell them – Who’s laughing now? Better yet, searching for IIN on Google actually gives results, unlike Jio Institute. IIN has become an Institute of Eminence and none of your IITs have, except Bombay. Suck on it!”
