IIT-H can not award degrees in May

The IIT-H officials are confident that the institute will be brought under the purview of the Institutes of Technology Act, 1961 after the Rajya Sabha approves it in the Budget session. While the first batch of IIT Hyderabad B.Tech students will finish their four-year course this May, the institution is yet to be empowered to award them degrees. Reason is the Centre is yet to bring IIT-Hyderabad under the Institutes of Technology Act, 1961, even though four years have passed since it opened. The Bill to bring the institute under the Act was passed by the Lok Sabha but is yet to get the nod in the Rajya Sabha.

IIT-Gn: Innovation Place as per student

While the first batch of 30 M.Tech students, who finished their course last year, is also waiting for degrees, IIT-H authorities were compelled to issue them ‘provisional degree certificates’ after pressure from the students. IIT-H officials are concerned that 115 B.Tech students will also meet the same fate as their M.Tech counterparts unless the Centre accords them approval under the Act in the next two months. All IITs are governed by the Institutes of Technology Act, 1961, which declares them as “institutions of national importance” and specifies their framework for governance, powers and duties.

IIT-Hyderabad was among the six new IITs set up in 2008; two other IITs were added in 2010. But IIT-H officials are confident that the Bill will be passed in Rajya Sabha in the Budget session and the issue will be sorted out by May. “We have already taken up the issue with the Union HRD ministry,” an official said. “The problem is not confined to just IIT-H the other seven new IITs are in a similar fix. (But) there is nothing to worry about, as the Bill has already been passed by the Lok Sabha.” According to the official, they have received the HRD ministry’s assurance that it will be passed by the Rajya Sabha during the Budget session.
