HC asks HRD ministry for status report on vacant IIT seats
Akshaya Mukul,TNN | Jan 22, 2015, 04.15 AM IST

NEW DELHI: A division bench of Delhi High Court, headed by chief justice G Rohini, directed the HRD ministry on Wednesday to submit a status report about its directions last August on the issue of vacant seats in IITs. The ministry has been asked to file the status report before the next date of hearing on February 4.

While the HRD ministry and IITs have agreed for a common counseling for NITs and IITs for 2015-16 academic session, the Joint Admission Board (JAB) of IITs is not in favour of recommending conversion of SC/ST category vacant seats into general category on account of applicable rules and rulings by the Supreme Court. JAB had also not agreed for lateral entry from NITs and other engineering colleges into IITs in the second year on the ground that it may require another entrance examination at the end of the first year, in addition to addressing the common first year curriculum, credit transfer, etc. which are in the purview of the individual senates of IITs. JAB felt that lateral transfer will have no material effect on reducing the vacancies as it only amounts to movement from one institute to another. This point was made in a compliance report by the ministry but since it was not on affidavit, HC has asked for a status report.

Last August, HC had told HRD to sort out the process for common counseling for admissions to NITs and IITs and also ensure that the process is implemented for admissions from the academic year 2015-2016. Petitioner Rajeev Kumar was given the liberty to make his suggestions to the HRD ministry. HC had also asked HRD ministry as well as IITs to also consider whether the reserved category seats in the IITs, if remaining unfilled, can be transferred to the general category. The government was asked to take a decision before November 30 last year. The HRD ministry was also asked to enquire whether there exists any provision for lateral entry into the IITs in the second year, as exists in some universities/colleges.

On his part, Kumar had suggested formation of a common board. The board must be composed of representatives from IITs, NITs, CBSE and the implementing agency- National Informatics Centre/C-DAC. The board, he said, should maintain a web-portal as a single interface with the candidates for admissions to IITs and NITs. Candidates should submit common preference list of their choices through the web-portal. The choices shall be entered by the candidates in order of their preference. The common board will ensure that the candidate gets the best choice in the order of preference. The common board will allocate the seats following admission norms of IITs and NITs. However, a candidate who can get two seats - one each from the courses offered by IITs and NITs based on the ranks in the two examinations will be allotted a single seat based on his preferences as given.

HRD ministry lists its achievements during 200-days of Modi govt
PTI | Feb 10, 2015, 06.40 PM IST

NEW DELHI: As many as 2,112 students and 528 school teachers will be visiting premier institutes like the IITs every year under a programme to provide academic exposure to students from the Northeast.
They would be visiting the 16 IITs and six NITs each year and interact with students hailing from the Northeast, said a document released by the HRD Ministry to highlight the achievements during the first 200 days of the BJP-led government.
The report, published in the form of an e-book, said the first visit was initiated in December of last year and students have been asked to prepare an e-book on their experiences.
Espousing the cause of women, the report said that women leaders from the corporate and business world have been appointed in the last 200 days as chairpersons of boards of governors of apex technical institutes and the national institutes of technology.
Thus, former CMD of Alfa Laval-Tetra Pak India, Lila Poonawalla, was named chairman of the board of governors of IIT, Ropar.
Likewise, CEO of Capgemini India Ltd, Arun Jayanthi, has been appointed as the head of NIT Calicut while founder- director of Apremeya Associates, Vasantha Ramaswamy, has been made the chairperson of the board of governors of NIT, Rourkela.
Focussing attention on the government's skill development initiative, the report talked about the implementation of 'Yagya Kalakriti Ki Takneeki (YUKTI)', which seeks to introduce appropriate design and technologies for innovation and production.

The HRD Ministry is working on an initiative involving student exchange programmes between large and reputed city schools and those in villages to raise standards of learning in the latter.

The ministry has already sought a list of "willing" schools from organisations like the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan and CBSE, so that around 100 rural and urban schools can be clubbed in the initial phase, it is learnt.

The Smriti Irani-led ministry has also written to state governments asking them to identify some urban and rural schools for the student exchange programme and is planning to begin "pilots" in some of the states like Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and West Bengal.

Under the scheme, students from rural schools will visit those in urban areas for a week and vice versa, while both institutions may also execute projects, which could range from story-telling to problem solving in various fields together.

It is envisaged that the better functioning schools would be able to identify areas in which they can support those in the countryside to help raise their standards, officials told PTI.

"The idea is to link well functioning private or government schools in urban or semi-urban areas for interaction and exchange of experience. Besides providing a new kind of learning to students, it will also create a support system for schools," a senior official said.

The official added that the idea for devising a scheme that encourages partnerships among students had been first mooted at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It was suggested that the department of school education (DSE) should formulate such a programme.

"While one school may be better placed in terms of infrastructure, facilities or teachers, the emphasis of the partnership is on equality, ensuring that the facilities of the better off school are accessible to its counterpart," officials said.

Even research in this field indicates that inter-school collaboration has a positive influence on learning, he added.

Improving education in schools, especially those in rural areas, is high on the priority list of the government.

"The ministry is also working to see if young professionals entering the field of teaching can do internships in schools that don't run too well," a senior official said.

The HRD ministry is also conducting a study based on the demand and supply of teachers in all states.
