Uttarakhand HC supports IITs’ right to set academic criterions: Irani
As delivered by HRD minister Smriti Irani during her speech at Lok Sabha on Wednesday, the Uttarakhand High Court had backed up the IITs' rights and regulations to maintain academic criterions, in contrast with the latest jig performed by IIT-Roorkee about re-admitting the under-performed first year students.
In response to a question that raises certain assistive activities performed by IITs to allow students to overcome their barriers regarding language, study pressure and many more, Irani cleared the air stating that these students are admitted but on some critical grounds set by the institute itself.
She also threw light on the remarkable properties of IIT educational system, saying that IITs have remarkable programs for students who face educational pressures and even maintain power to expel any student on the behalf of poor moral, ethical and academic performance.
On another question being raised about diminishing excellent faculty, she said that the Govt. has been planning to take some initiatives to make sure that vacancies are filled, and in regard with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement in December 2014, a new arrangement to boost the teacher training methods will soon be installed.
