IIT’s are one of the most prominent engineering colleges in the country.After years of study and hard labor only few out of many students qualify to sit for the JEE Advance exam.After successfully crossing the first stage, students take admission in undergraduate programmes across all IITs and are awarded a B.Tech degree after completing four years.Recently, the rate of drop out students has increased at the institute.
According to the data shared by the HRD Ministry in Parliament this year, 2461 students have dropped out of the IITs in the last two years across B.Tech and Master programmes.
A meeting was held on Friday regarding the concerned issue.The Council was headed by the Human Resource Development Minister.The HRD is the highest decision-making body of all the 23 institutes.The Ministry proposed a plan that IITs should provide an exit option after sixth semester.The IITs have been asked to approve the proposal in order to allow academically weak students to opt for B.Sc.(Engineering) after the second semester and leave after three years,provided they have met minimum academic standards.If approved,the IITs will implement the advice from the current academic year.
