  IITs: Doing Manu Proud
Technically, the IITs want to show that they are indeed satisfying the dalit/adivasi need to be part of what is an elite setup at the student level, but in effect they are producing (dalit and adivasi) technologists and engineers who will not be recruited by these very institutions.
The extraordinary attack launched on the reservation policy by an IIT director (P V Indiresan), in the presence of the President of the country (Zail Singh) during a convocation ceremony, for which he did not even receive a reprimand/ reminder that affirmative action was a constitutional guarantee, reflects the situation in these institutes...
IITs embody a hazardous combination of the worst of western capitalist-driven technology's social insensitivity and the worst of the local caste system - the only aspect of postAryan culture that has survived, in one form or the other, for 3000-odd years.

 Student-Faculty Ratio at IITs and its   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Perhaps the easiest method to increase the relevance of IITs, and definitely the one in which IITs and their faculty will excel, is to enhance its impact on education and manpower development by dramatically increasing its education program.
It is clear that IITs are currently not playing their due role in technology and manpower development in the country, and the cost of education at IITs is inordinately high.
In general the current existence of IITs will have to be disturbed, which will be resisted in the name of quality, autonomy, research, etc. The only way IITs are likely to change is if it is "forced" upon them by linking the government funding to IITs to their "output".

 The IIT-K letter and my comments | The News is NowPublic.com
The statement "After all, IIT Kanpur has had an exemplary record of implementing the SC/ST reservation in a supportive and pro-active way that became a model for all IITs" is strange.
IIT professors should take a relook at how their hiring process is managed, rather than claiming that it is not easy to find quality faculty.
Unless IITs produce large number of undergraduate students of great quality, and a substantial numbers of them decide to stay back in India and continue their post graduate studies in IIT, the postgraduate programs cannot produce the desired effect.

 Plea to Preserve the IIT Brand and Build Complementary Brands to Serve India Petition
The GOI should fund not just seven but many more engineering colleges in India, at least one in each state for a start, to raise their standards and to significantly increase the well-trained manpower pool of the nation, which is of national strategic interest especially in the IT/ITES and other emerging economic sectors.
The Brand Name that IIT's hold today are a result of their intellectual capital, quality infrastructure, selective intake of students through JEE, and most of all, operational autonomy.
Above all, the five primary IITs have managed to evolve a unique academic culture over the last fifty years and that culture will be hard to replicate at any other institution.

He, however, insisted that though only 321 girls could make it to the IITs in 2005 as against 4,771 boys, if one compares the percentage of success — keeping in mind the number of applications from each gender — the difference is not much.
IIT Kharagpur, which is the organising IIT for IITJEE 2006, feels that the number of women who will finally crack the exam will automatically improve.
Secondly, the existing school system used to be at odds with the IIT examination, to some extent in terms of the curriculum and the quality of teaching and analytical ability that it imparts to the student.

 The making of new IITs
The race for new IITs began even before the former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee announced the creation of five more IITs 'by upgrading existing academic institutions that have the necessary promise and potential' at a function organised by IIT Kanpur in October 2003.
However, due to constant pressure from different state governments (all of whom wanted an IIT in their backyard) and business leaders (who argued that the country needed more high quality engineers to feed the explosive demand from the IT and industrial sectors), the central government decided to move in the matter.
In the present IIT race, it is widely discussed in political and academic circles that only three colleges will be upgraded: one in north (Uttar Pradesh) and two in south (Kerala and Andhra Pradesh).

 nanopolitan: Book review: The IITs -- Slumping or Soaring?
The IIT system is under massive strain: its autonomy is being eroded; its physical infrastructure is wearing thin; laboratories are getting outdated; faculty is depleting (sic); and the competition for admission is pushing aspirants into an unhealthy grind.
Having succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams in their core endeavour -- teaching top Indian students -- the IITs are being asked by a demanding nation and an even more demanding family of alumni to elevate themselves to a higher realm: excellence in research.
For example, in terms of research, the IITs are in a far better position now than they were in the 'golden age' when most of what they did was UG teaching [You don't have to take my word for it; Gulhati himself quotes some prominent alumni on this point].

 The Hindu : IITs and IIMs must come under AICTE
TWO AREAS, research and contribution to development where IITs and IIMs have not performed up to their potential and did not figure prominently in the debate about the fee reduction, are examined.
Very rarely does an undergraduate from IIT pursue M.Tech at IITs and it is equally true about M.Techs pursuing Ph.D. As a result the students in postgraduate courses in IITs are mostly from smaller colleges.
The attitude of IIT and IIM graduates towards employment in India is exemplified by the remarks of one of the panellists in a television debate that if fees reduction was implemented in IIMs, the graduates will get employment only in Mumbai Corporation.
