New IITs Wait For Governments Approval

Most of the students joined the new IIT's (Indian Institutes of Technology) all pertaining with their eyes wide open hoping for a very bright future. The same students are now in a major dilemma since they may not acquire their IIT Degrees this year.

The first B.Tech batch of the new IIT's will graduating this year may need to wait for a long time for their degrees since the new IIT's have still not been approved by the Parliament. The bill for incorporating new IIT's was passed in the Lok Sabha. However, the bill has still not been cleared in Rajya Sabha. IIT's are also unable to fix a convocation date due to this uncertainty. Mostly the IIT's hold their convocation in the month of August.

One of the new IIT directors claimed that since it takes substantial amount of time to plan a convocation, which meets standards of IIT's; it would be helpful if Parliament acted quickly on the same. The first batch of IIT-Hyderabad 30 M.Tech students graduated in 2011. However, students have still not received their degrees. Sources from IIT-Hyderabad reveal students have been offered provisional degrees for the time being.

Nearly, 160 students will be graduating from IIT Hyderabad this year. The institute is hoping that Rajya Sabha clears the bill as soon as possible. In all, almost 600 UG and PG students will be graduating from the new IIT's this year. But still, for the suture of the students it's about time that Rajya Sabha passes the bill.
