The first IIT institute in India was IIT, Kharagpur, which the Government of India established in 1951. Today 23 IITs in India are located in different states and parts of the country. Lakhs of students study in these institutes.
When it comes to engineering, the name of IIT comes first because it is the most prestigious institute in India and millions of skilled and capable engineers emerge from these institutes who work in big companies like Google, Microsoft, and Facebook.

There are different courses in IIT College which are called ‘Branches’. Like Civil Engineering, Information Technology, and Computer Science branch, etc.
JEE Mains – Joint Entrance Examination
The complete form of JEE is the Joint Entrance Exam.
JEE Mains is a national-level entrance exam required for admission in undergraduate engineering courses B.Tech & B.E. in NITs, IIITs, and CFTI colleges.

For admission in IITs, one has to crack both JEE Mains & Advanced, whereas, in NITs, one can go through JEE Mains only.
Both can be considered equal in education and placement level, but IITs are considered better. IITs are given more funds by the government, due to which research papers & projects are published by IITs while less in NITs. Overall, IITs are better than NITs.
