Apart from the superb quality of student input, the significant degree of autonomy the IITs enjoy in their admission process, selection of faculty and curriculum decisions, and the generous and sustained levels of funding they have received from the Central government are major reasons for the success of the system.
The IITs currently have no reserved quotas except 15 per cent reservation of seats for S.C.s and 7.5 per cent reservation for S.T.s, who are admitted on the basis of "relaxed criteria,'' and a very small number of seats for physically handicapped persons and children of defence or paramilitary personnel killed or disabled in action.
