After the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, IIT-Delhi on Thursday, 21st June 2012 dealt a major blow to HRD minister Kapil Sibals common entrance test (CET) by announcing that it would be joining the Kanpur institute in conducting its own entrance examination. The defiance of the country’s two premier tech schools will mean students will have to write one more exam, defeating the purpose of the new format that Sibal is keen to push through. It could have a spiralling effect on other IITs with the IIT Bombay Senate expected to meet to discuss the issue in the first week of July.
IIT-Delhi’s decision strengthens the Kanpur institutes hands and if resistance to the HRD ministry snowballs further it can jeopardize the ministry’s efforts to push the common test through, although the decisions of senates have to be approved by the respective councils and boards of governors. All IITs have been agitated by the ministry’s proposal to provide weightage to the marks accrued in the Class XII board exams and make the entrance test common for admissions to central engineering institutes. The formula is also differentiated for IITs and non-IIT institution in terms of weightage.
