Upcoming entrance exams might bring some cheers among aspirants of various examination. Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar has said to increase the number of seats in IIMs, IITs and Central Universities.
A conference was held by Minister Javadekar addressing around 40 vice-chancellors of central universities. In the conference, it was suggested to increase the number of seats in the university to improve the quality of education. The decision to increase the number of seats came after making various propositions.
Ministry has asked the vice-chancellor of the universities to keep prepare for the expected necessities of this. They were given a time of 1 month to do important assessments of the needs.
The Ministry has been taking since a long period to increase the seats of IITs and IIMs. Last month, it also came in the news that Mr. Javadekar went for a meeting with the authorities of IIMs and proposed to double the number of seats. Earlier, the number of seats at IITs has also been in the news to make it 1 lakh by the year 2020.
All the preparations are underway to take this important step. The increment in the number of seats will associate challenges like hostel availability, teachers to student ratio, etc. These problems are also under consideration by the Ministry. However, it has been mentioned that future students at IITs would have to live outside of the hostel promises. IIMs are still taking decisions.
Also, the vacant seats at NITs and other students are instructed to be filled. Many top universities and colleges of India have fewer faculty members which possess a problem. In the conference, Mr. Javadekar has told this problem would be shortly rectified.
Upcoming CAT and IIT JEE entrance exam would increase the hope of students to get into prestigious institutions of India. Also, it would cover a wider range of quality education among the Indian students.
