IIT students to sign an honour code

In the first move of its kind, over 7,000 Madras IITians studying various courses and staying in 17 hostels will have to sign an honour code. The code commits the signatories to attend classes regularly, study well, be friendly with others, and maintain personal hygiene and cleanliness. Prof. L.S. Ganesh, dean (students), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras, said that the institute plans to introduce ‘honour code” for its students on the lines of medical practitioners who take the Hippocratic Oath.

The institute discussed the proposal in its board of students meeting held on February 29 and it would be tabled in the ensuing senate meeting to ratify it. “This will bring a sense of accountability among students and it will also deal with how they go about acquiring knowledge, besides their behavior inside the campus. We will implement this code from the coming academic year”, Prof. Ganesh said. Shravan, a student of the institute, said it was not wrong to accept honour code as it would not keep track of the students’ accountability and bring a sense of belonging.
