IIT Roorkee withdraws dismissal of all 72 students, admits them on strict grounds
After so many surprises and hurdles, finally Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee took back its decision and welcomed all the 72 students, who were expelled for underperforming in examinations, back into the campus on Monday.
Last month, the institute unpredictably expelled some students from the first year batch of B.Tech on the basis of poor performance, as they miserably failed to maintain their average Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.
Out of 73 students, one student was provided with nullification, as after he applied for rechecking, it was found that he had scored a CGPA of more than 5. 72 remaining students were left out, which were later re-admitted on strict grounds.
"All students who have less than 5 CGPA at the end of the first year of the undergraduate programme (B.Tech) will be re-admitted as a one-time measure, but on strict conditions." Prashant Garg, Registrar at IIT-Roorkee and Secretary, Senate, was held quoting.
Another senior was reported saying, "The decision by the senate has been taken in the students' favor after many deliberations. The students, however, will have to get themselves registered on or before August 10 and their attendance will be counted from the date of registration. Every single student will have to agree in writing to all the conditions before being re-admitted."
These are certain conditions on which grounds the students are re-admitted within the course, and are allowed to continue their education. They are as follows:
- The students will have to repeat their first year
- They must clear their examinations with the required CGPA.
- The students must maintain their 75% attendance in all subjects.
- No re-appearance must emerge in any subject as well.
