A human resource development ministry-appointed committee has rejected a key demand from different states to have domicile-based reservation in the 20 new Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs)to be rolled out from next year.

 

State Quota banned in new IITs

T. V. Mohandas Pai, who heads the expert committee to recommend criteria for selection of industry partners as well as proposals from states to set up 20 IIITs in public-private partnership mode, has not favoured the system of having state quota or giving preferential treatment to the state students in admissions to the top institutes.
During a workshop convened by the HRD ministry last month, Pai clarified that the system followed by National Institutes of Technology - of setting aside 50% of seats for state students - would not be followed in the case of the new IIITs. Some states have made a vehement pitch for local quota, saying they were contributing more than half the amount to set up these institutes in the form of land. Pai clarifying that the scheme, in its present form, did not provide for such an arrangement (of having state quota).

The proposed IIITs, which will be set up in phases over a nine-year period starting 2011, will admit students through a national-level entrance test, like the All-India Engineering Entrance Exam. The existing IIITs, like the ones in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi and Bhubaneshwar, will mentor the new ones.
