IIT-D alumni set for talks on CET

A day after human resources (HRD) minister Kapil Sibal said the government had no intention to impinge on IITs autonomy, IIT Delhi Alumni Association said while a legal recourse was an option, it would be willing to discuss and iron out the differences. IIT Delhi Alumni president Somnath Bharti said that it was deeply worried about Sibal’s decision not to rollback CET.

The new JEE will not only ruin IITs autonomy but will also be detrimental to the interests of the students from rural India and the move, if properly analyzed, seems to benefit no one but coaching institutes a fact belying the claims of HRD ministry, he said. Bharti added that the alumni were willing to discuss issues but seeking legal recourse would remain an option. When asked about the controversy over the common entrance test for IITs, Sibal, who is Washington, said, Quite frankly this is not a ministers decision.

This is the unanimous decision of the IIT Council, consisted of all the IIT directors and chairmen. Then we have the triple IIT Council representatives there, we have NIT Council representatives there. They all decided unanimously for a particular course of action, he said. In terms of the IIT Act, there is an IIT Council. In terms of that Act, the Council is entitled to take certain decisions by virtue of a statute. The council has endorsed those decisions. I do not know what the exact objections to it are I will go back and find out the exact nature of these objections and will surely address it, he said.
Panel to examine textbook, says Sibal
Amid protests in Tamil Nadu over a cartoon on anti-Hindi movement in NCERT textbooks, the Centre on Tuesday, 12th June, 2012 said the panel set up in May to review the political science textbook containing B. R. Ambedkars cartoon is also examining inappropriate material on Tamil movement. In a statement, HRD minister Kapil Sibal said the NCERT has already constituted a committee on 14th May to review the social science and political science textbooks for classes IX & XII from the point of view of identifying educationally inappropriate material in them, and to provide suggestions for alternatives.
