Due to this solar plant the college has minimized its electricity bill to come down to Rs 0.While the classroom is clearly the dominant setting for learning, the flexibility of classroom instruction is often called into question. In NITAP, Instead of isolating learners in a classroom, many professors are experimenting with integrating learning into a student’s daily life. The important concerns like layout, design and decor of the classroom which has a significant effect upon the quality of education are been taken care of in NITAP.NIT Arunachal Pradesh is temporarily housed in Yupia. Yupia is around 18 kilometers from Itanagar and around 8 kilometers from Naharlagan, which is known as the twin capital.The nearest railway station is Harmutty (Meter Gauge), which is around 36 kilometers. A Broad Gauge railway line is being laid to connect it to other parts of the country.The nearest airport is Lilabari, which is around 50 kilometers and nearest helipad is at Naharlagun. Daily helicopter services are available between Guwahati and Naharlagun except on Sundays.Besides, day and night bus services are available from Guwahati, which is around 400 kilometers from naharlagun.The site of  NIT is situated on a flat land surrounded by beautiful green forest and mountains. The area is picturesque and serene surrounding makes for an ideal academic environment. In the vicinity of the Institute are the offices of the District-heads like the Deputy Commissioner, the District Medical Officer, the Deputy Director of School Education, the District Planning Officer etc.The Government of India started fourteen Regional Engineering Colleges  between 1959 and 1965, at Bhopal, Allahabad, Calicut, Durgapur, Kurukshetra, Jamshedpur, Jaipur, Nagpur, Rourkela, Srinagar, Surathkal, Surat, Tiruchirappalli, and Warangal. The government also established one in Silchar, in 1967, and two other at Hamirpur, in 1986, and Jalandhar in the year 1987, respectively.The RECs were jointly operated by the central government and the concerned state governments. Non-recurring expenditures and expenditures for post-graduate courses during the REC period were borne by the central government, while recurring expenditure on undergraduate courses was shared equally by central and state governments.The success of technology-based industry led to high demand for technical and scientific education. Due to the enormous costs and infrastructure involved in creating globally respected Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), in 2002 MHRD Minister Murli Manohar Joshi decided to upgrade Regional Engineering Colleges  to “National Institutes of Technology” (NITs) instead of creating IITs. The central government controls NITs and provides all funding. In 2003, all RECs became NITs.The upgradation was designed along the lines of the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) after it was concluded that RECs had potential as proven by the success of their alumni and their contributions in the field of technical education. Subsequently, funding and autonomy for NITs increased, and they awarded degrees which have raised their graduates’ perceived value. These changes implemented recommendations of the “High Powered Review Committee” (HPRC). The HPRC, chaired by Dr. R.A. Mashelkar, submitted its report entitled “Strategic Road Map for Academic Excellence of Future RECs” in 1998.In 2006, MHRD issued NIT status to three more colleges located at Patna (Bihar Engineering College – a 110 year old college), Raipur (Government Engineering College) and Agartala (Tripura Engineering College) Based on the request of state governments and feasibility, future NITs are either converted from existing institutes or can be freshly created. The 21st (and the first brand-new) NIT was planned for Imphal in the north-eastern state of Manipur at an initial cost of Rs. 500 crores. According to the NIT Act 2007, ten new NITs were to be set up in the remaining states and union territories of India.  In the year 2010, NIT Arunachal Pradesh became one of the newly set up NIT in India, under the mentorship of NIT Durgapur until the year 2011when the charge of Director was taken up by Prof. (Dr.) Chandan Tilak Bhunia.
