IIIT's Say 'YES' To Single Entrance Test
Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIIT's) have given their consent for conducting a single national level Entrance test for admission in Undergraduate programs for science and Engineering. A proposal to form a council for the IIIT's was also approved in the meeting of the IIIT's directors held on 28 November, 2011 headed by Kapil Sibal, HRD Minister of India.

The proposal to conduct a common Entrance test in India proposed by the T Ramasami Committee report has already been approved by the IIT's and National Institutes of Technology (NIT's). The report also proposes to combine the school and national level test performance for admission to undergraduate courses in order to reduce the number of entrance tests and dependency on coaching centers.

The central advisory Board of Education will give the final nod before introducing single entrance test in the academic session of 2013-14. As per the officials of HRD ministry, other discussions issued in the meeting included planning research activity and academics at IIIT's in a more systematic manner, bringing pay equality and other administrative affairs.
