Deserving meritorious candidates miss out jee exam and cannot afford going out of state
INVC NEWS New Delhi,
Representatives of IIT Alumni Association have urged the Union Human resource development (HRD) Ministry to reserve at least 10 seats for economically weak but deserving meritorious local candidates in the IIT located in that state. These students can be chosen from a list of top 20 in the state board exams who could not afford to join coaching classes or applied for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).
“ At present some deserving economically meritorious students who have topped the board exams are left out in the admission process for IIT’s and other central government Engineering institutes since they have not taken the all India common engineering entrance exam due to financial weakness” said Mr Yatinder Pal Singh Suri, Past President, IIT Kharagpur Alumni Association North and presently President, IITians for Holy Ganga .
“At present , almost every state in the country has one IIT. If 10 seats are reserved for local ECONOMICALLY WEAK BUT MERITORIOUS STUDENTS in IIT of each state , this will go a big way in helping deserving students who miss out taking JEE exams and cannot go out of the state for further studies” said Mr suri.
