PM Assures Autonomy of IITs will Remain Intact
 
India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh smiles in New Delhi
In a meeting with the IIT Faculty Federation on 14th June, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has given assurance of keeping the autonomy of IITs intact. During the meeting, the Prime Minister has informed the Federation that he would talk to HRD minister Kapil Sibal and not disturb the autonomy of the IITs.
The Federation has opposed the common entrance test format, which they contend will dilute the IITs and undermine the autonomous status enjoyed by the IITs. During the meeting, the Federation pointed out the decision taken by the IIT council about having one common exam should also be ratified by all the IIT senates. The Federation also emphasized that any change in the entrance test should be effected only after 2013.
